Venom: Let There Be Carnage‘s VFX supervisor discusses the inspiration behind Carnage, comparing his movement and attacks to a scorpion’s. The classic Spider-Man villain and symbiotic offspring of Venom are portrayed by Woody Harrelson in the sequel to 2018’s Venom. Carnage was first teased during a post-credits scene in the 2018 film, with Harrelson’s Cletus Kasady name-dropping the symbiote when speaking to Tom Hardy’s Eddie Brock.
Carnage was first introduced in The Amazing Spider-Man #361 in April 1992, created by David Michelinie and Mark Bagley. The symbiote offspring of Venom bonded with sadistic serial killer Cletus Kasady, becoming one of Spider-Man and Venom’s most terrifying and frightful enemies. The villain made his full cinematic debut in Let There Be Carnage, portrayed by Harrelson as the villain seeks to reunite with long-lost love Shriek (Naomie Harris). Early promotional clips have showcased the character’s brutal, animalistic nature as he tears through his captors, and now Let There Be Carnage‘s VFX Supervisor has broken down how they translated Carnage from page to screen.
