Venom: Let there Be Carnage

Andy Serkis has directed the upcoming Venom: Let There Be Carnage, and he addressed the franchise’s potential connection to Spider-Man in a new interview. There has been a lot of speculation (though nothing confirmed) that with Sony’s deal with Marvel for the rights to have Spider-Man in the MCU, Tom Holland’s Peter Parker could appear in the Sony-Marvel universe. Speaking with IGN, Serkis said that at this point the characters of his film are unaware of the wall-crawler.

Obviously, there are links between Venom and Spider-Man and the Marvel Universe and the Spider-Man story,” Serkis said. “We’re treating this very much as it’s his own world. The Venom story is his own world. There are nods and little moments, of course, but on the whole he’s unaware. They are unaware, at this point, of other characters like Spider-Man. So, that’s the way we’ve chosen to play this particular episode of the movie, but, well, we’ll wait and see. We’ll see what little things you can pick out of it.”

Serkis is directing the Venom sequel, which stars Tom Hardy, Woody Harrelson, Michelle Williams, Reid Scott, Naomie Harris, Stephen Graham, Sean Delaney, and Larry Olubamiwo. It is set to release on September 24th and the trailer was released earlier this week.
