In Venom: Let There Be Carnage, a brand new and powerful symbiote is teased at the film’s end, who has a dynamic history in Marvel Comics.
Warning! Spoilers ahead for Venom: Let There Be Carnage
In Venom: Let There Be Carnage, yet another symbiote has been featured and teased by the film’s end, though it’s unclear if they’ll become friend or foe to Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy) in the future. While the sequel to 2018’s Venom sees the birth of Cletus Kasady’s Carnage (Woody Harrelson), the climactic battle between the serial killer and the Lethal Protector results in a new symbiote potentially being born known as Toxin, the symbiote son of Carnage and grandson of Venom, being one the most powerful symbiote characters in the pages of Marvel Comics.
In Let There Be Carnage, Venom accidentally birthed and left his offspring with Cletus Kassady during Eddie Brock’s final interview with the serial killer on death row. However, thanks to the inadvertent creation of his own symbiote that’s just as dark and sinister and Cletus himself, the pair becomes Carnage, breaking out of prison and wreaking havoc before breaking out Shriek (Naomie Harris), the love of Kasady’s life. By the film’s end, Carnage and Shriek decided to get married in a cathedral, bringing together guests they intended to kill: Venom, Eddie, and the officer that shot out Shriek’s eye years prior named Detective Mulligan (played by Stephen Graham). Mulligan was also the leading detective on Kasady’s case which saw him working with Brock (despite his deep dislike for the journalist).
