Given the recent announcement of the Venom film, was can at least expect a tease of the manic Cletus Kasady when the symbiote comes to screens. As a fan-favorite of the Spider-Man series, Kasady's Carnage has been long-expected to get his own spin-off, while Venom could be the perfect time
to tease the scarlet sociopath.
Premiering in 1991, Kasady served as Eddie Brock's cellmate and became a host for the alien symbiote under the alias of Carnage. With a more murderous streak, Carnage was a much darker version of Venom - just crying out for his own feature film. While it is presumed that Venom will push for an R-rating, there is no other way to take the Carnage source material.
In terms of a storyline, tackling 1993's Maximum Carnage crossover would be one hell of a cinematic spectacle. Following Carnage as he breaks out of the Ravencroft institute, it featured a super Spider-Man team-up as Peter Parker attempted to stop the likes of Shriek, Demogoblin, Carrion, and Doppelganger.
Carnage is surely a case of when not if, and what's better, we even have the perfect casting choice for Kasady - Prison Break's Robert Knepper!
