The first Venom film was a nice mess. The onscreen Venom bar was very small, but the comic success of Tom Hardy and the reliable box office results made it a good case for the second film. Fortunately, we’ll see Tom Hardy take up the symbiotic mantle again in a sequel to Venom.
The Sony Universe of Marvel Characters (SUMC, for short) was introduced as the potential future of Tom Holland’s Spiderman following a botched. It then revamped the contract between Disney and Sony, which booted Spider-Man out of the Marvel Cinematic Universe before pulling him out. With Spider-Man back in the MCU, it looks like it’s time for Venom to shine after his critically panned debut.
The Venom sequel seems very likely to appear on 2 October 2020.
Sony bookmarked the “Sony/Marvel sequel” slot, and since the first film was released in October, there is no cause for concerns that a studio will try to repair something that already worked. The film is rumored to start filming at Warner Bros on 18 November 2019. Leavesden Studios in Watford, England.
The cast of Venom 2 includes:
- Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock / Venom
- Michelle Williams as Anne Weying
- Woody Harrelson as Cletus Kasady
- Naomie Harris as Shriek
- Reid Scott as Dr. Dan Lewis
With Riz Ahmed’s Carlton Drake out of the picture after a spaceship crashes into a satellite towards the end of the first film, Eddie and Venom will possibly never return. Fortunately, the mid-credit scene in Venom was a reliable, bankable predictor of who would fill the villain’s vacuum in the sequel.
The character Cletus Kasady of Woody Harrelson was revealed in the scene. Brock, who served again as a reporter, interviews Kasady, a convicted murderer caught in prison.
Spiderman’s Cameo In Venom 2
Although Sony and Marvel do not divide into Spider-Man (with Marvel producing another single Spidey movie and putting him in a team-up film), we would expect the characters to come together at some point.
Sony is keen to bring Spider-Man back into their existing movie stable, and Spider-Man and Venom’s role as comic book arch nemesis makes the Venom series clear to the hero.
There are also rumors from Geeks WorldWide that Holland will play a cameo role in the second film from Venom after leaked casting information – but it is still not clear if he will appear as the Peter Parker we know and love from movies such as Infinity War, or if it will be an alternate universe of the Spider-Man.
