It's a possibility...
In an interview with IGN, Amazing Spider-Man 2 producers Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach revealed that Carnage could appear in the upcoming Venom spin-off movie. It was hinted at last week when the viral site The Daily Bugle on Tumblr posted a story about serial killer Cletus Kasady (Carnage), written by Eddie Brock (Venom).
When asked about it, Arad said that it was a "great idea". Tolmach added: "Exactly. The idea of Venom and Carnage… taking it into consideration. Watch out for this Venom movie. We are crazy excited."
Arad said: "We did Venom in the UK as a special issue based on the '94 show: the three-parter. And I think if you check the record book it was probably one of the best-selling videos. Way before DVD. Because the character is interesting. Even Venom is not – we call them villains, but he's really not a villain."
Venom, which doesn't have a release date, will be directed by Alex Kurtzman. Tolmach previously said that the film would arrive before The Amazing Spider-Man 4. A Spider-Man film is due to arrive on May 4, 2018, but this could be the Venom or the Sinister Six movies. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 arrives on May 2.
