Woody Harrelson details his research cycle to play Cletus Kasady in Venom 2. Harrelson first played the job in the end credits scene of 2018’s Venom, which stars Tom Hardy as the writer and host to the nominal symbiote Eddie Brock. The spin-off, formally named Venom: Let There Be Carnage, is booked to release wide in the US on October 1.
Fanatics of Carnage are eager to see him realized on the big screen, however Harrelson informs Collider that thinking concerning it in those terms would have confused him. He says he attempted to move toward his Venom: Let There Be Carnage job like some other person, in spite of knowing that being important for the Marvel universe would make that troublesome. He did, notwithstanding, consult old funnies to attempt to sort out what made Kasady tick:
Indeed, I mean, on the off chance that I’d pondered him having a major fanbase with Marvel fans, that would’ve been hard for me. I attempt to simply move toward it like I would some other person, despite the fact that being in the Marvel universe, it’s not simply gonna be some other thing, however… It was gorgeous at the old funnies and stuff, and trying to get a feeling of what kind of awful poop occurred in his youth that influenced him to become this unhinged, you know, chronic killer. That was useful.
While aficionados of Marvel characters are consistently glad to hear that actors are drawing from the funnies, the possibility that Harrelson is approaching Kasady as normally as conceivable ought to be comforting to Carnage fans. He’s a gifted actor with a long history of magnificent performances added to his repertoire, and to humanize Kasady, however villainous as he seems to be, will only add to the person’s intensity. Serkis has guaranteed that Venom 2 stretches its PG-13 rating to do equity to the darkness of Carnage, and it seems as though Harrelson’s performance was a key piece of that effort.
