Is There Going to Be a 'Venom 2'? Here's What You Need to Know


Whether you asked for it or not, Tom Hardy is coming back as Eddie Brock/Venom in Venom 2, and Andy Serkis is set to the direct the film. If you remember, Venom (which grossed $856 million at the global box office) left the audience with a foreboding post-credits scene which hints to more Venom movies. Eddie, who's secretly still hosting his slimy and powerful sidekick Venom, visits a cartoonishly secluded prison cage, where he meets bad guy Cletus Kasady (played by Woody Harrelson). "When I get outta here, and I will, there's gonna be carnage," Cletus says, wearing a bad orange wig. Will we see Eddie/Venom face Cletus in Venom 2? Here's what we know so far.
