If you go all the way back to the pre-pandemic days of 2019, you might remember that Venom: Let There Be Carnage Director Andy Serkis reveals that star Tom Hardy was “very involved” in the writing, so much so that it has now been confirmed that the actor will receive his first-ever ‘Story By’ credit for Sony’s upcoming Marvel sequel.
“This is new for him to get credit, but it’s not new for him to be so involved,” screenwriter Kelly Marcel said in an interview with Empire. “He is absolutely 100 percent committed to everything he does. He is married to Venom. He likes this character. He’s very involved in what he thinks needs to be done.”
“We spent months together going through the story on FaceTime, trying out ideas, seeing what worked and what didn’t.” Marcel continued. “Then I took everything we talked about and quietly hid in a script somewhere for three months.”
We’re still a few months away from the delayed release of Venom: Let There Be Carnage, but while we wait for the promotional push, we also got to see three new images from the film starring Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy), Anne Weying (Michelle Williams) and Cletus Kasady (Woody Harrelson); check them out here…
Venom: Let There Be Carnage sees Andy Serkis (Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle) directing returning cast members Tom Hardy (Eddie Brock/Venom), Michelle Williams (Anne Weying), Woody Harrelson (Cletus Kasady/Carnage), and Reid Scott (Dr. Dan Lewis), alongside new additions Naomie Harris (No time to die) and Stephen Graham (the Irishman).
