We already know that Carnage played by Woody Harrelson will be the main villain in the Andy Serkis directed sequel VENOM 2. Now we are finding out that symbiote wielding serial killer will have company.
Shriek from the comics has been incorporated into the plot of the Venom sequel which due in theaters on Oct. 2, 2020. This makes perfect sense because of Shriek’s history as the sonic-powered accomplice and romantic interest of serial killer Cletus Kasady, aka Carnage. It will be interesting to see the two of them torment Tom Hardy’s anti-hero, Venom
A little bit of backstory on Shriek she was a drug dealer named Frances Barrison who became the volatile Shriek after severe trauma allow her latent mutant powers to emerge. In the comics, those powers include sonic energy blasts, flight, and the ability to stir up dark and violent emotions in others.
The man at the center of one of many Twitter wars with the President-Elect now wants to potentially go to war with some of the Earth’s Mightiest heroes .
Lin-Manuel Miranda the creator of the hit play “Hamilton: An American Musical” has said on the podcast Meet The Movie Press reveals that he apparently really wants to play Carnage. “He said if Disney and Marvel were looking at doing a Maximum Carnage movie or bringing Carnage in as a character, he wants to be Carnage,” co-host Simon Thompson explained. “That’s a goal of his.” It’s somewhat hard to imagine the often jolly Miranda playing the crazy, murderous Cletus Kasady, but perhaps his wish is derived from fandom and a desire to stretch his acting muscles.
Miranda now is deeply embedded in the Disney machine, so if he wants a part in a Marvel movie it might not be that hard to get one. (We’re imagining this could be orchestrated with just a quick call from John Lasseter to Kevin Feige.) In fact, it’s almost surprising, come to think of it, that he wasn’t cast as a cool teacher in Spider-Man: Homecoming, which has enlisted every other Internet fave.
I know we here at the Trusty Sidekick would love to see that. What about you all?
