When we think of an actor who has been known for being a specialist in giving his voice to CGI creatures in high budget films and in capturing movements so that they move in a truly realistic way, there is someone who comes to mind from everything. the world without any problem. Who are we talking about? Definitely Andy Serkis.
Do not miss: Venom 2: Tom Hardy thinks more comedy was needed
The actor has played this role in a large number of blockbusters, but there is no doubt that his most famous role in this regard is that of Gollum in the trilogy of The Lord of the rings. More than one thinks that at the time they should have given him an Oscar for playing the two personalities that inhabited that character and, basically, for being one of the pioneers of motion capture and the best exponent of its possibilities in the future of the industry. Without it, computer creatures wouldn’t be the same.
In that sense, his talents make him seem like the ideal choice to direct Venom: Let There Be Carnage. At the end of the day is a film about large CGI creatures that need both dubbing and motion capture to generate the illusion of being corporeal entities. Surely more than one has wondered and why didn’t he give Carnage a voice? The obvious answer is because that’s what Woody Harrelson, who plays his host Cletus Kasady, is going to do it.

The point is that the actor himself doubted for a moment to be up to the challenge and would have preferred that Serkis give it a voice. This is what he said in an interview for Comic Book:
It was great. I really enjoyed it… it’s kind of wild, because in a sense, you’re playing two characters in one. So there was a lot of discussion about the voice and discussions with Tom, but obviously with Andy Serkis, who directed it. And I kept wasting time with the voice, and I thought to myself ‘Who is going to tell the difference, if Andy Serkis did the voice, he is the master of the voices? Why don’t you do it, Andy? And no, he insisted that I do it, but I really… I liked the end result. Obviously, effects were put into the voice, but I really liked how it came out in the end.
Moving on, something everyone wants to see is the MCU’s Spider-Man in this movie or at least he can interact with Tom Hardy’s character. The actor himself has also said this repeatedly. Sony’s deal with Marvel is what has prevented it. For many it was very strange that in the Venom movie there was no mention of Spider-Man. In fact, in all the others, it is also going to be something of the most unusual. As is often the case with many superheroes, the origin of his villains is linked to him. In that sense, making films about them where he doesn’t exist is something risky and very strange. Especially in the case of Venom – 35%.
For the same reason, in a recent interview for Comic Book, the actor reiterated that he dies because Venom can give a bite to that Spider-Man:
I think you can’t do a Venom story without knowing that Spider-Man is involved. He is somewhere, but we all know that there is a great constellation of events, you know, that need to move and operate around them. As adults, we have to think ‘Ok, we wait’. We wait for all those plans to land and when they do, we will see if we can get to one of them, but until then we concentrate on the work at hand that is Venom. But it’s always in the back of our minds, you know? ‘When am I going to be able to eat Spider-Man’?
