VENOM Director Explains That Surprising Mid-Credits Scene in The Film
For those of you who saw Venom over the weekend and have questions about the surprising mid-credits scene, the director of the film, Ruben Fleischer, opens up and talks about it.
If you haven’t seen the movie yet, you might want to skip article because it contains spoilers.
In the mid-credits scene, Eddie Brock goes to San Quentin State prison to interview the crazy-ass serial killer Cletus Kasidy. This is the killer that eventually becomes Carnage. This character is played by Woody Harrelson and the director explains that Harrelson was the only person he ever envisioned as the villain and confirms the Venom sequel would pit Venom against Carnage.
"He was the first person I thought of to play Cletus Kasady. And what will be fun is, if you think about Woody in Natural Born Killers, and that darkness and that menace that he can bring to a serial killer like Cletus Kasady, you know, he can go real dark and explore that. Carnage is going to be… just thinking about Venom pitting off against Carnage is just so exciting. And hopefully fans leave the movie really looking forward to that next one. Because I think also just seeing Tom and Woody go head to head, you know, those are two great actors that I think can really create some exciting scenes."
I’m a fan of Woody Harrelson, but it was still weird to see him in this role, especially with that full lush head of red hair. It’ll be interesting to see how the sequel to Venom plays out if it gets made. We’ll just have to wait and see if the first movie does well enough at the box office to warrant a sequel.
I personally didn’t care for the film, but I still can’t help but be interested to see how Carnage is handled in the sequel. I just wish Marvel Studios was the studio handling these characters.
