Andy Serkis will direct the Venom sequel. News is that Andy Serkis has closed a deal with Sony Studios to direct Venom 2 and Andy himself confirmed this on his Twitter handle.
Is Andy Serkis the right choice for directing Venom sequel?
The mid-credit scenes of the movie confirmed the presence of Carnage. The film would undoubtedly require lots of CGI and special effects. Andy Serkis is an established motion capture actor in Hollywood. He is known for his roles like Caesar in the Planets of the Apes series, Snoke in latest Star Wars film and most notably, Gollum in the Lords of the Rings series.
Venom 2 will be his third title as director after his 2018 release Breathe and his Netflix film Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle. He is not entirely new to the comic world and has already been part of the glorious Marvel Cinematic Universe. Serkis played the role of villain Ulysses Klaue, an international black market criminal. Thus, the special effect and motion capture mastery combined with experience in the superhero genre made him a solid choice for director.
What do we know about the Venom Sequel movie?
The original Venom movie was an unexpected success. The sequel to the movie will once again star Tom Hardy playing Venom as an Anti-hero. The main villain of the film is likely to be Carnage.
Who is Carnage?
Carnage is one of the most brutal and ruthless symbiotes and basically a living monster. He lives with the motive to harm innocent people and wreak havoc all around him. Cletus Kasady, the human alter ego of Carnage, is a criminal. When combined, they make one of the most formidable villains of the Venom franchise. Carnage is physically stronger than Venom, and it will be interesting to see these two Symbiotes on the big screen.
One can expect an action-filled brutal movie, and it will be interesting to see how things go-between Marvel and Sony in the new Phase 4 MCU era.
