Venom has thus far had a strong showing at the box office, which bodes well for a potential sequel. We’re desperately hoping a sequel happens, too, because it will mean Woody Harrelson’s Cletus Kasady (a.k.a. Carnage) will feature in the film.
Now, notes from Eddie Brock’s (Tom Hardy) notebook from their fateful meeting in Venom’s post-credits scene reveals grisly details about Kasady’s murderous past. In Brock’s notepad, it’s revealed that Kasady has done some unsavory things, which is why he landed himself in San Quentin prison.
Here are some of the highlights included in Brock’s notes:
- Killed his grandmother by pushing her down a flight of stairs
- Went on a huge massacre in New York City—11 murdered
- Dug up his mother’s grave after the massacre
- He has an insane mind and a lust for destruction—homicidal maniac
- As a boy he tortured and killed his mother’s dog with a drill
- Pushed a girl who would not go out with him in front of a bus
Brock’s notes also speculate that Kasady may be responsible for setting an orphanage on fire.
Audiences didn’t really need these details to conclude that Kasady is insane, but they paint a broader picture of just how insane he is. In the post-credits scene, his appearance and behavior also say a lot about him—and the warning he gives about causing carnage is enough to send shudders down my spine.
Hopefully, Sony will see fit to create a Venom sequel, because the prospect of seeing Venom and Carnage do battle is more than enough to get the hype train going.
