Venom 2: Let Their Be Carnage is the romantic action film staring Tom Hardy’s Eddie Brock and his alien symbiote Venom. The take will pick up where the last one left off and fans are hyped for this fresh take on the story. They almost had a different name to ask for at the box office window.

Andy Serkis helmed this project, and the mo-cap icon led a loaded lineup of acting talent including Woody Harrelson, Michelle Williams, Naomie Harrie and Reid Scott. The film went through its share of alterations in the process of filming including its name.

Collider spoke to Serkis as he explained the process they used to select the final title. He was asked if the film ever had an alternate title like, Venom: Lethal Protector, then he replied that Let There Be Carnage was the title they liked, but there was one other name they considered.

Not really, nothing to do with Lethal Protector at this point. We did think for a moment it might be called Love Will Tear Us Apart, that was a going concern for a little while. But Let There Be Carnage just seems to do it. There wasn’t a lot of fighting over the other titles we were thinking of. Because this was such a strong contender.


Venom is lighting up the silver screen and making fans wish there was a way to weave this world into the greater Marvel Cinematic Universe. You can never say never, but it seems that Eddie Brock and Venom are doing their thing for this title that very much stands by itself.
