Carnage is one of the deadliest Marvel villains out there and he could prove it with his own movie within the Spider-verse that SONY is creating.
So far it is noted that the Spider-Man license is shared between SONY and Marvel Studios because much more information is coming out in advance than in other productions that are exclusive to the UCM. Now the new plans could take a most interesting turn if they make a gore Carnage movie.
First, you have to remember that Carnage will debut in the cinema in the movie Venom 2 that will be released in 2021. Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock will face Woody Harrelson as Cletus Kasady, both with their respective symbiotes.
Although Venom is a menacing alien, he becomes an anti-hero and protector of the city of San Francisco, but Carnage is different. The mind of the psychopath Cletus Kasady fused with the symbiote creates a being so heinous that it even nearly destroyed the Marvel Comics heroes at the Absolute Carnage event.
SONY’s plans could revolutionize superhero cinema.
They already tried it with the first Venom movie and in the end, they backed out. Because in 2018 there were two versions and in the end, they released the one that was softer. Since in the United States, there is a big difference between the PG-13 rating and R rating, especially since you can lose a lot of money from tickets. Although there are films that have shown that this is changing, such as Deadpool (2016), Logan (2017), or Joker (2019).
Now SONY is planning the idea of giving Carnage a spin-off starring Woody Harrelson, something that has been rumored for a while. Although the novelty is that they want to make a violent, bloody, and adult-rated movie. This information is a kind of SPOILER, as it would mean that he survives the confrontation with Venom.
