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.

Following the success of Sony’s Venom, it seems it’s a safe bet to say that ALL systems are go on the sequel.
At the end of Venom, Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy Hardy) goes to San Quentin prison to interview serial killer Cleatus Kassidy played by Woody Harrelson utters the line, “There will be Carnage”. Which was followed by a sadistic grin and laugh.
This poster was released showing Harrelson covered in half of his iconic red symbiote similar to that of Brock’s and it honestly is extremely exciting.
With the change in the origin of Venom it will be interesting to see how they explain Kassidy receiving the symbiote that enhances his murdering prowess.
