With just three weeks to go until the release of Venom: Let There Be Carnage, director Andy Serkis has been opening up about Sony’s Marvel sequel, with the filmmaker stating that he views the movie as rather unconventional love story between Tom Hardy’s Eddie Brock and his alien symbiote.
“The film is a love story – but not the love story you might think,” states Serkis. “It’s very much about the extraordinary relationship between symbiote and host. Any love affair has its pitfalls, its high points and low points; Venom and Eddie’s relationship absolutely causes problems and stress, and they have a near-hatred for each other. But they have to be with each other – they can’t live without each other. That’s companionship – love – the things that relationships are really about.”
Of course, along with this love story, we’ll also get to see Eddie and Venom squaring off against Woody Harrelson’s Cletus Kasady and his own alien symbiote Carnage, so expect plenty of action to balance things out.
And, while you’re here, check out the latest poster for the Marvel sequel along with a new TV spot…
