Although Venom – 35% did not result in the success that fans expected, the great work of Tom Hardy made it Sony not give up on this franchise. Certainly his proposal is not as bloody and explicit as it is in the comics, but the story does make enough references to the liking of the followers. The sequel promised us to Carnage and the first previews finally showed us Woody Harrelson in action, which again raised a lot of expectations. The film has gone through several changes in its release date, but it was recently confirmed that it will finally hit commercial theaters in early October, advancing the last date they had given.

Sony He prefers to focus on the action part rather than the horror part, and the trailers show exactly an epic battle between symbiotes and a lot of destruction to private property. To replace this internal conflict of the protagonist marked by the terror of having a hungry creature inside, it was decided that Venom It would deal with the complications of having two totally opposite personalities fighting in the same body. At the time, shortly before the premiere of the first part, Hardy assured that it seemed more like a tape of opposite friends, and he was right. Some appreciated the change, while others harshly criticized the comedy they used.
Regardless of whether or not the method convinced the entire audience, the sequel is tasked with exploring it further and revamping it for possible later installments. The advance indicates that there is still a great conflict between Eddie and VenomBut at least the symbiote tries to adjust to its new life and even tries to make breakfast for its host. This coexistence will be compared with that of Carnage and Kasady, who coexist from their mutual interest in carnage and slaughter. In many ways, the villain seems to connect better with his symbiote, while the hero still has trouble adjusting.
To emphasize that, it appears Venom: Let There Be Carnage will focus on how the relationship between Eddie and Venom, which we even see frightened by the presence of Carnage. In the production notes for the sequel (via Comicbook.com), director Andy Serkis reveals his approach to the story:
The story is a love story, but not the love story you might think. It’s really about the extraordinary relationship between symbiote and host. All romances have their complications, their high points and their low points.

In addition to the obvious comparison to a romance, it seems that an important part of defeating your enemy will be to improve your relationship and go from tolerating each other to genuinely caring for each other:
Venom and Eddie’s relationship definitely causes problems and stress, and they seem to hate each other a bit. But they have to be together, they cannot live without each other. That’s companionship, love, the things that relationships are really about.
Perhaps because of this approach, it was thought to bring in Kelly Marcel, a screenwriter known for Fifty Shades of Gray – 25% and Cruella – 93%, to develop the original story proposed by the own Tom hardy. In the same notes, the writer says:
Eddie and Venom have been living together, sharing the same body, for a while. They know each other internally and superficially, literally. And like any situation of shared life in a small space, their hobbies and weaknesses begin to wear down the other. They were forced to come together by a circumstance and this movie wonders whether or not there is an interest in saving the relationship or going their separate ways. Are they just henchmen by chance or should they really be together?
Fans really hope this sequel will fix the mistakes of the first part and stabilize the character enough to keep him close. In fact, many wish to see Hardy in some project with Tom Holland, who gives life to Spider-Man in the UCM, since until now it is not known if they coexist or not in the same narrative universe. Yes Venom: Let There Be Carnage is a box office success, considering current conditions, a third installment is almost certainly in development.
