Venom: Let There Be Carnage is set to drop and fans might be in for a different kind of film than they expect. This might not have all the hallmarks of a romantic comedy, but the sequel to Venom is a love story according to the film’s director.
Andy Serkis has revealed that Venom: Let There Be Carnage is a love story. Comic Book revealed production notes from Serkis that this film about the often misunderstood Marvel character will be a romantic tale.
“The film is a love story – but not the love story you might think … 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.”
This extra knowledge about the Venom sequel will likely cause a lot of fans to wonder what tactic they go with to pull off that romantic vision. Most don’t consider Venom a romantic character, but this film is likely to add another dimension to the antihero that we all know so well.
