New concept art from Venom reveals a very diffrent ending for the Tom Hardy film, featuring a fight between the titular character and Woody Harrelson’s Carnage.
The third act of Venom featured a battle between Tom Hardy’s Venom and Riz Ahmed’s Riot. But new concept art from artist Paolo Giandoso shows us Sony’s original plans featured an epic showdown between Tom Hardy’s Venom and Woody Harrelson’s Carnage. Instead, Venom introduced us to one of the most vicious, terrible and beloved Marvel villains ever by featuring Woody Harrelson in a surprise cameo as criminal Cletus Kasady, who in the comics becomes Carnage after merging with the offspring of the Venom symbiote.
But as the film’s post-credits scene teased, Woody Harrelson’s Kletus Kasady will find a way to escape imprisonment and give Tom Hardy’s Eddie Brock a run for his money in what fans surely hope will be an epic symbiote battle. While this new concept art by artist Paolo Giandoso was for the first Venom film with Tom Hardy, it could give fans an idea as to what to expect when Woody Harrelson’s Carnage goes toe-to-toe with Venom in the sequel. You can check it out below.

Andy Serkis is set to direct the Venom sequel with Tom Hardy returning in the role of the reporter-turned-Spider-Man nemesis Eddie Brock along with Michelle Williams, and Woody Harrelson in their respective roles. Sony reportedly wants the Venom sequel to begin filming in November. The film will continue to expand Sony’s Universe of Spider-Man characters. The script is being written by Kelly Marcel, who developed the story with Tom Hardy himself.
Here is the plot synopsis for Venom:
The evolution story of Marvel’s most enigmatic, complex and badass character – Venom! Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy) is a broken man after he loses everything including his job and fiancée. Just when his life is at its lowest, he becomes host to an alien symbiote which results in extraordinary superpowers – transforming him into Venom. Will these powers be enough for this new lethal protector to defeat great evil forces, especially against the far stronger and more weaponized symbiote rival, Riot?
Directed by Ruben Fleischer from a script written by Jeff Pinkner & Scott Rosenberg and Kelly Marcel, Venom stars Tom Hardy, Michelle Williams, Riz Ahmed, Scott Haze, Reid Scott, Jenny Slate, Ron Cephas Jones, and Woody Harrelson.
Tom Hardy’s Venom is now available on Digital HD, 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack, Blu-ray Combo Pack, and DVD. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for the latest news on Tom Hardy, Woody Harrelson and the Venom sequel.
