Will Michael Mando Be Playing Carnage in SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING?
Last week we learned that Better Call Saul actor Michael Mando had joined the cast of Spider-Man: Homecoming. There were no details on who he would be playing, but after he was cast the official Better Call Saul Twitter account posted something that heavily hinted that Mando could be playing Cletus Kasady, a ruthless homicidal maniac with absolutely no moral compass who eventually transforms into Carnage.
This is the tweet that they sent out:
Why would they use the word carnage in that phrasing!? "Bringing carnage to life?" It doesn’t confirm anything, but it sounds to me like they are teasing some information that they probably know. Of course, maybe they said it because they knew it would cause speculation to blow up among the fans. It definitely caught my eye when I saw it!
I doubt that they would bring Carnage into the new Spider-Man reboot so soon, but it's more likely that they would at least introduce Cletus Kasady in the first film setting him up for Carnage in future films. It would be awesome if this character was actually included in the film. I’d love to see Carnage finally make his big screen debut after all these years!
The cast features Tom Holland as Spider-Man/Peter Parker, Marisa Tomei as Aunt May, and Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark/Iron Man, and Michael Keaton as The Vulture. It also includes Zendaya, Donald Glover, Martin Starr, Laura Harrier, Kenneth Choi, Michael Barbieri, Logan Marshall-Green, Michael Mando, Selenis Leyva, Tony Revolori, Isabella Amara, Jorge Lendeborg, Jr., JJ Totah, Hannibal Buress, Abraham Attah, and Bokeem Woodbine.
Spider-Man: Homecoming is currently shooting, and it will be released in theaters on July 7th, 2017.
