The Ruben Fleischer film Venom (based on the Marvel character of the same name) starring Tom Hardy is about to become more star-studded as Riz Ahmed, Matt Smith, Pedro Pascal and Mathias Schoenarts are all in early talks for the same not yet named role that is rumored to be a popular Marvel Comics character. Now, it’s been said that Carnage will play the part of the main antagonist in the Venom film, but recent reports stemming from Variety have been given the information that the character will not be Cletus Kasady.
The film has Scott Rosenberg (Jumanji) and Jeff Pinkner (The Dark Tower) as the screenwriters for Eddie Brock’s solo film with Matt Tolmach, Amy Pascal, Palak Patel and Eric Fineman keeping an oversight of the project during it’s tenure at Columbia Pictures. And, unfortunately, the film will have no connective tissue to the MCU Spider-Man as the film is the first installment of Sony’s very own Marvel Cinematic Universe.
