VENOM 2 Adds Another Villain To Give The Anti-Hero Trouble

Venom

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.
