This news will surely surprise some fans, even as Venom opened bigger than some of its Spider-Man predecessors in Chinese markets. Still, the fact thatVenom has been so profitable, even with such massively mixed reviews, is particularly interesting.
With such massive profit for the film, fans are already speculating about a potential sequel, especially now that Cletus Kasady/Carnage (Woody Harrelson) has entered the game in the film's mid-credits scene.
"I obviously have a close relationship with Woody," director Ruben Fleischer explained to ComicBook.com. "And he's one of my favorite actors, if not my favorite actor, and he's just also an incredible human being." If you remember seeing the movie it spawned a sequel ending by having Carnage in the ending.
"When you hear, Carnage, the only thing you can think of is R. But, if you know his story, if you really know the comic, there’s no R here. He’s a tortured soul. It’s not about what he does, because we never have to show the knife going from here to there, and the blood is pouring. What you have to show is, what is the motivation? Was he born like that, or it’s someone we should feel for, because if you are succeeding to make a villain someone you can feel for, jackpot." Guess spider man really does have his own universe. WELCOME TO THE SPIDEY VERSE.
