Here’s the Latest Update Upon The Villain(s) of Venom!

Venom is the next Superhero movie to be focused upon. Sony is looking to start a Cinematic Universe with the various characters from the Spider-Man universe, but they will not actually be using Spidey in the beginning. Things will be starting with Venom and as we all know, Sony tapped one of the most hardworking actors from Hollywood, Tom Hardy to play Venom.

Other cast members of Venom include Michelle Williams as Anne Weying, Jenny Slate as Dora Skirth, Al-Jaleel Knox as a Stoner Dude, Riz Ahmed as Carlton Drake/ Riot, Scott Haze and Woody Harrelson as unknown characters. It was recently revealed that Riz Ahmed will indeed become the Riot Symbiote in the movie. Earlier we just knew that Ahmed will be playing Carlton Drake who is the owner of the Life Foundation and is responsible for having found the Symbiotes in the movie.

The movie has been reported to adapt the classic 90’s Marvel comics based on Lethal Protector storyline that sees Eddie Brock becoming a hero in San Francisco. Still, elements of the movie will obviously be altered so that the story fits better on the big screen.  Here’s everything you need to know before you watch the movie:

“Before the story begins, Venom makes an agreement with Spider-Man that they will leave each other alone, on the condition that Venom commits no crimes. Venom then moves from New York City to San Francisco and takes up with a group of Californian mole people. Shortly thereafter the father of one of Venom’s victims seeks him out with a group of super-powered mercenaries to take revenge. Spider-Man, seeing misleading coverage of Venom on television, heads to San Francisco to confront him and instead winds up fighting alongside Venom against five new offspring of the Venom Symbiote: Scream, Rage, Riot, Lasher, and Agony.”

So, we know that there are going to be 4 other Symbiotes other than Riot and Venom. While we don’t have many details upon the other Symbiotes namely Scream, Rage, Lasher and Agony, Riz Ahmed has given us the details upon his character Riot. In his recent interview at SDCC with Entertainment Weekly, Ahmed revealed that what exactly separates his villain from the other villains that have been a part of the previous Comic book movies. He said:

“Well my character is a billionaire industrialist, he’s an inventor, he’s a bit of a genius, and he’s really interested in trying to find a future for humanity as we face ecological collapse and war. For him, the solution lies in colonizing other planets. So it’s actually a kind of search for another suitable habitat for humanity, that leads him to the Symbiotes.”

Ahmed continued to talk about his character, and he touched upon the situation of playing a villain in a movie where there is actually no Superhero involved. He added:

“No one thinks that they are the bad guy, that’s the reality,” the actor said. “People do crazy things, terrible things, but in their mind they justify it. They think that they’re helping the world, helping the other person, helping themselves, they justify it in their own ways. So, for me, when I’m playing a character like Carlton Drake, I’m sure you’ll think I’m crazy but I totally understand what he’s doing and why he’s doing it. He’s trying to serve humanity and he just thinks that he’s best placed to do that and he wants to find a future for the human race. And of course, as the most rich, powerful, successful, intelligent member of the human race, he should be at the center of that future as well. So, I think I’m playing the good guy, but that’s sort of what everyone thinks.”

After Venom, Sony is bringing in Morbius which is the next movie under development and they have already cast Jared Leto to play Michael Morbius and after that Sony has Silver and Back, Silk, Mysterio and Kraven the Hunter under development. Hopefully, these Villains turned Anti-heroes will get to encounter Spider-Man someday once he is done with the MCU.
