Venom fans were given their first look at the character design for Tom Hardy’s version of the reporter-turned-Spider-Man nemesis in Sony’s upcoming standalone film this week and thanks to some fan art, we’ve got a good look at what Carnage could look like based on the Venom we’ve seen in the trailer.
Venom has been confirmed to be an origin story for with Carnage featured as the antagonist. It is said to be based on the Lethal Protector and Planet of the Symbiotes comic book runs. In the comics, Cletus Kasady aka Carnage was a serial killer who ended up binding with the alien symbiote during a prison break, amplifying his psychosis and turning him into a dangerous, unhinged creature. While Carnage himself was not seen in the trailer, Woody Harrelson is rumored to be playing Carnage in the film.

The film stars Tom Hardy, Michelle Williams, Scott Haze, Jenny Slate, Sope Aluko, and Riz Ahmed, with Woody Harrelson rumored to be playing Carnage.

The 10 Best Episodes Of ‘Spider-Man: The Animated Series’
Peter Parker has had many incarnations throughout the fifty plus years of his existence but none more so than in animation. There’s the newer Ultimate Spider-Man series on Disney, the classic ’60s and ’80s Spider-Man cartoons and even the soon-to-be classic The Spectacular Spider-Man, but there is one series that will always have a place in my heart and was a major reason why this character resonates for so many people that grew up during the time it was released.
The ’90s Spider-Man series that run on Fox Kids was among my favorite cartoons growing up and even when I couldn’t get a hold of the issues they were adapting, it was the closest thing that I could get to reading the comics. How much of a presence did it have? The Spider-Man ride, which is arguably the best at Islands of Adventure at Universal Orlando, was based on this series and it’s got every bit of the charm that we saw on the small screen.
These episodes are classics so let’s countdown the best ones from the ’90s Spider-Man series. Click Next to get started!
