Poison Star Riz Ahmed has confirmed he won’t be returning to Sony’s upcoming sequel, Venom: Let There Be Carnage, and for good reason. While discussing his role in the first film, Ahmed elaborated on whether his corporate villain, Carlton Drake AKA Riot, would make a comeback in this year’s highly anticipated sequel.
“I think I’m done in Venom. It’s pretty conclusive. Dude got blown up in a spaceship.”
Drake was actually blown up during the final of 2018 Poisonand while Ahmed is convinced that this will mean the end for him in this particular franchise, comic book fans will know that crazier resurrections have taken place. At least for now, it sure sounds like he won’t be there Poison: Let there be carnagewhich is probably a good thing considering the alien antihero and his human companion will already have a lot to do.
Oddly enough Poison isn’t the only franchise where Ahmed’s character has been blown up, and the actor hopes he’d return too war of stars in the Disney + series, Andor. When asked if there are any plans to bring him back into battle, Ahmed replied, “I just honestly haven’t heard of it.”
The first Poison introduced the audience to Tom Hardy’s crusade journalist Eddie Brock as he attempts to defeat Riz Ahmed’s Carlton Drake, the CEO of the seedy Life Foundation. While investigating questionable and illegal human experiments, Brock inadvertently merges with a symbiotic alien with deadly abilities and real temperament. The two share a special bond, but as the film progresses, this becomes an inspirational cross-species bromance to last for the ages.
The continuation, Poison: Let there be carnage, will bring back Woody Harrelson, who appeared very briefly in one Poison Post credits scene as the murderous criminal Cletus Kasady. Kasady, a psychotic serial killer who has been incarcerated for some time, will find that Kasady receives his own alien symbiote and together they become the evil super villain named Carnage.
Poison: Let there be carnage is led by Lord of the rings Andy Serkis stars from a screenplay by Kelly Marcel and Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock / Venom alongside Woody Harrelson, Michelle Williams, Reid Scott and Naomie Harris. The sequel is currently slated to be released in the US on June 25, 2021 after being delayed from the first release date in October 2020 due to the ongoing global situation.
While Venom Riot may not hit the screen again, fans are very confident that the Marvel villain will face Tom Hollands at some point Spider Man. Although nothing has been confirmed, there are indications of the upcoming Sony excursion Morbius I was annoyed that this cinematic universe and the MCU are the same, which is in large part thanks to the inclusion of Spider-Man: Homecoming Michael Keaton, who repeats the role of Adrian Toomes AKA Vulture alongside Michael Morbius from Jared Leto.
Back in 2019, Poison Director Ruben Fleischer suggested a possible transition between Poison and Spidey said, “That’s where everything’s going to lead. And that’s what’s exciting because we changed the origin of Venom … In the comics, it evolved from Spider-Man, but because of the Marvel-Sony thing we did weren’t. ” I think it builds on that and will be exciting to see when they actually face each other. “That comes to us from The Hollywood Reporter.
