Tom Hardy will be playing Eddie Brock in the Venom solo film. I wonder who they will cast as Carnage.

It would be hilarious if they choose Topher Grace to play Carnage. I might pick Woody Harrison because he does maniacal psycho well.

Are they casting Carnage in the same film? I wouldn't mind seeing Jake Gyllenhaal cast as him. He was creepy as hell in Nightcrawler, he gives me the notion he might be able to give Carnage a good run.

@laughingbatman: Bro, Hardy should be in DCEU imo.

Not necessarily Bane, maybe another villain.

@eto: It'd be cool to see him portray another DC character, but he would be a great Eddie Brock. Especially if they make it a darker tone film and not corny in any sort of way. They need to not try to make a movie that appeals to kids, and pay respect to who Venom truly is, and Tom Hardy would be great in that sort of role.

@laughingbatman: I didn't catch Nightcrawler. Wasn't he a reporter in that movie?

Damn now that's unexpected. I really appreciate that they are serious about it considering they are looking for some of the best actors to be involved. Now hopefully plot won't disappoint either. And gore. There has to be some major symbiotic madness.

Wish them luck and success.

Yes. He was a cameraman who filmed accidents for news TV. He would "alter" the accidents to make them look more gruesome than they really were. For example, in a scene where he was filming the aftermath of a car accident, he took one of the bodies and moved it further away from the spot to make it look like they'd been ejected from their car farther than they actually did. The character always had some obvious issues when he was socializing with other people. Jake played him magnificently.

@legeekwriter: that's kinda why I got turned off by nightcrawler because I thought it was based off of a true story about a reporter. Didn't catch my attention

@laughingbatman: @eto: @adamtrmm: @tvc-15: @legeekwriter: @ravenvice01:

Sony will fail. If they couldn't do a Spider Man Cinematic Universe with Spider Man himself, one of the three most universally super popular heroes along Superman and Batman, than they sure as hell will not do it with supporting characters of the main man.

However Tom as Venom intrigues me.

BTW this is Mera played by Amber Heard in the upcoming Aquaman movie. She is HOT! I LOVE REDHEADS! Someone like this should play Mary Jane!

@ravenvice01: It isn't a true story. I would really recommend you watch it whenever you have time and a couple dollars to spare. It's a great film.

Annabelle? Annabeth?

I think her face is too chubby.

These were my choices:

Lili can act as well, you can see her in the TV series Banshee.

Madeline is currently Cheryl Blossom in CW's Riverdale series.

@ursaber: kept missing Banshee and I'm not a fan of Archie' s Riverdale. I deal with enough teen drama. I don't need to watch more of it on the CW

Just one episode should do the trick or at least a youtube clip to see what she's got.
