With Tom Hardy’s Eddie Brock set to go up against Woody Harrelson’s Carnage in next year’s Venom 2, now comes word on another villain who Brock will be butting heads with.
Courtesy of Deadline, Venom 2 will also feature the nefarious Shriek as a second villain for Venom to tackle. The character has yet to be cast, mind, but Shriek is now a part of the sequel’s screenplay.
For those not too familiar with Shriek, the character’s real name is Frances Barrison and she has at times been a love interest of Carnage’s. In terms of abilities, Shriek is a mutant who specialises in conjuring up sonic blasts. And, y’know, given that symbiotes are vulnerable to sonics, that could provide quite the problem for Venom.
To be directed by Andy Serkis, Venom 2 is currently pegged for an October 2020 release.
