A new featurette for Venom: Let There Be Carnage introduces audiences to Naomie Harris’ new character Shriek.
In the comics, Shriek first appeared in Spider-Man: Unlimited #1 and was created by writer Tom DeFalco and artist Ron Lim. She is typically an enemy of everyone’s favorite wall-crawler and the lover of Carnage. The character is, in fact, a mutant who can manipulate sound making her a very deadly enemy to those who use a symbiote.
Shriek appeared in the first trailer of Venom: Let There Be Carnage, played by Naomie Harris, although it wasn’t entirely clear who she was playing in it. With the release date of the Tom Hardy film upon us, Sony’s marketing team has been pushing as much out about the film in anticipation of its release. The film’s latest featurette breaks down who Shriek is and her relationship to Woody Harrelson’s Cletus Kasady/Carnage. You can see the full video below:
Here is the synopsis for Sony’s first Venom film:
“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.
Venom is available on Digital HD, 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and DVD, while Let There Be Carnage will hit theaters on October 1. Stay tuned for all the latest news on the future of Sony’s Spider-Man universe, and be sure to subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original video content.
