Ever since the end credits scene from Ruben Fleischer Venom back in 2018 we were all excited to get an on-screen Carnage introduced as we got our first look at Cletus Kasady. Taking on the role of Carnage is Woody Harrelson, _Venom 2 is set to release in October of this year and set to direct is none other than the motion capture king himself, Andy Serkis. It will interesting to see how this performs and if it does well in box office what the implication will be for Marvel.

There were plans to introduce Carnage into Sony's mini MCU as they own some different Marvel characters one of them being Spider-Man. Sony has made it a point to not roll over to Disney as they are the only other studio to own the rights to Marvel characters.

We got our first look at Cletus Kasady as Tom Hardy who plays Eddie Brock in the film, posted on his Instagram of the actor in character. This was probably something Hardy wasn't supposed to do as the photo has now been taken down.

Sonyhas big plans for its version of the MCU has they rival Disney's marvel characters as they 900 of their own. Chairman of Sony Pictures Television Michael Hopkins has spoken on what his plans are for their Marvel Cinematic Universe are they can be strong contenders to rival Disney as they own the rights to one of its beloved new characters in Disney's MCU. As the details of the deal with Sony and Disney are unknown I'm sure Sony can wage war just by taking Spider-Man away from Disney's MCU.

The Next Seven Years

Hopkins has said Sony has the next seven to eight years planned out for their Marvel characters not only films but tv shows as well.

Hopinks said to Variety, "We’re developing a lot of Marvel-related content, and I think we’ll be out in the market very soon with something really, really big and transformational for us, because we’ve not done any shows with Marvel before, with Marvel IP,” says Hopkins. “So that’s a big piece of development that we’re onto."

Even though Sony seems to have a plan set out to rival Disney, could it be too late? The looming fog of superhero fatigue is among us that's why it's no surprise that a film like Todd Phillips Joker along with an amazing performance by Joaquin Phoenix does so well. It's a comic book film but it doesn't deal with a superhero.

It's tough to see a battle between the two as Disney has already made history with its Marvel films, but maybe after scoping out what the competition has put out in the last decade, Sony has constructed a plan to bring something new the table.
