VENOM: LET THERE BE CARNAGE Director Andy Serkis Suggests Carnage Could Return In Some Form
Venom: Let There Be Carnage director Andy Serkis has suggested that Carnage might have survived the events of the sequel, returning in a new form somewhere down the line. Be warned that spoilers follow...
Venom: Let There Be Carnage ended with Venom devouring the Carnage symbiote and biting off Cletus Kasady's head. It certainly wasn't how fans would have liked the villain's story to end, but could the serial killer return to cause more carnage in a future movie starring the Lethal Protector?
In the comic books, Venom once "ate" Carnage and later fell sick once it became clear he couldn't contain the symbiote. Cletus, meanwhile, has been resurrected on countless occasions, and his unique transformation into Carnage on the big screen could leave the door open to him being reformed. Now, director Andy Serkis has admitted that we could see more of the villain down the line.
"The fact of the matter is, I always like to think there might just be that little bit of symbiote that didn't quite get devoured by Venom," Serkis tells Phase Zero (via @SSMUNews). "[It] could be hanging around in some baptismal font in the church just swimming around [and] could somehow come back to life."
"I always say, 'No one ever really dies,'" the filmmaker added. "I'm still hoping Ulysses Klaue is going to come back, for God's sake!"
It's certainly intriguing to ponder where Carnage's story could go next, though it does seem more likely a Venom 3 would shift the spotlight to Detective Pat Mulligan becoming Toxin. That third instalment is in the works, though there's no word on plot details or whether Serkis will be back in the director's chair.
