A while back, we heard that Woody Harrelson had joined the cast of Sony’s Venom movie. His exact character has been kept under wraps, which led to a lot of rumors/speculation that he’s playing Cletus Kasady, aka Carnage. Now, the actor has given a new hint at his role.
Speaking with Collider, Harrelson shares his excitement for Venom, saying he was excited to re-team with director Ruben Fleischer and work with Tom Hardy. He also praises the “really wonderful” script. But most interestingly, Harrelson reveals that he doesn’t have a huge role in this one, but he’ll be back for a possible sequel. “Roll of the dice, because I’m just… I’m in a little fraction of this movie, but I’ll be in the next one, you know? So I haven’t read that script, but anyways, just rolled the dice.” Finally, he is still keeping his character under wraps.
We’ve heard off and on for the past year that Carnage was in Venom. The most recent rumor says that Kasady has a small role in the movie, and he won’t actually appear until the very end – possibly even a post-credits scene. This scene would help set up a sequel. This, combined with Harrelson’s comments here, only seem to back up the rumor that he’s playing Carnage. We’ll obviously know for certain when the movie hits theaters.
Stay tuned for more as we have it. For Collider’s full interview with Harrelson, where he discusses Lost in London, click HERE.
Venom is scheduled to hit theaters on October 5th. The first installment of Sony’s Marvel Universe stars Tom Hardy, Riz Ahmed, Michelle Williams, Jenny Slate, Reid Scott, Scott Haze, and Woody Harrelson. Ruben Fleischer directs from a script by Scott Rosenberg and Jeff Pinkner.
