It has been a long time since Venom released, but critics do not applaud Eddie Brocks for the first time individually, with Rotten Tomatoes currently keeping an impressive 31% score. If you’re wondering whether this bad buzz will ruin Sony, it seems that the comic book Flick is far safer for the general public.
The movie Ruben Fleischer-helmed has an 89 percent Rotten Tomatoes audience ranking. While this will inevitably change as more people look at the film, it seems that many audiences are still happy with what they saw so far from the exterior symbiote.
Here’s What Every Marvel Fan Should Know Before Watching Venom 2
#1. Tom Hardy
Tom Hardy has a three films contract with Sony, too. So it’s evident that he’ll be back. And while there are reports that the actor has sometimes struggled to work with some cast and crew, it is unlikely if a sequel goes a step ahead, mainly because Venom worked financially well. We can imagine that Michelle Williams will return as Anne Weying too, but we haven’t heard about the star until now.
#2. Huge Opening
In addition to the incredible opening weekend at the box office that shattered all kinds of records, Venom 2 is a certainty at this stage. And even though Sony has not yet revealed anything officially, let’s look at what we could get in the expected series.
For one thing, it is evident that in the next film, Carnage will be the main antagonist. We see that Eddie Brock meets Cletus Kasady in jail. Although he doesn’t have the symbol at this point, the insane serial murderer calls the terrible villain, Kasady continues to become Carnage, as fans will know. Also, Woody Harrelson, who plays Kasady, has confirmed his sequel role–if there is one.
When Would Venom 2 Release?
Venom 2 will be back on the screen on 2 October 2020, roughly two years after the first. The release date is the same as Tom Hanks’ science fiction drama Profiles, but Eddie Brock and his symbiotic artists will not clash with it.
The sequel might be in trouble if the big screen of The Sopranos Prequel The Many Saints of Newark ends last week or the horror film Last Noche in Soho. The next week will be Poirot’s Death on the Nile film and a still-strong Disney live-action rework by Kenneth Branagh.
