An incredible fan-made image shows Woody Harrelson’s Carnage ready to take on Tom Hardy’s Venom.
Although Venom: Let There Be Carnage was delayed (like most big blockbusters in the past year) to June 5, 2021, this concept design depicts Woody Harrelson turning into Carnage for the upcoming Tom Hardy sequel. Harrelson of course appeared at the end of the first film when Eddie Brock went to interview him in prison, but after seeing the recent set photos of the star, many fans are glad that the actor has ditched the curly red wig to play the Marvel villain.
The fan art from digital artist ‘ediyulika’ on Instagram reveals what Woody Harrelson’s terrifying symbiote could look like in live-action and leans into the gross, body-horror nature of the character. The black streaks stretching across Cletus Kasady pay homage to the fact that Carnage was birthed from the Venom symbiote, something that should hopefully be adapted in some way during the sequel. Hopefully the Tom Hardy film leans into the real horrific threat posed by Woody Harrelson’s serial killer. Check out the artwork below.

Here is the synopsis for the 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 now available on Digital HD, 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and DVD. Meanwhile, Let There Be Carnage is currently scheduled to open in theaters on June 25, 2021.
