FAN CAST: Venom/Carnage

Here are my top 3 picks for the actors that I think could play Venom and Carnage as well as who I'd like to see star as the main characters from Maximum Carnage...


Venom the alien symbiote that enhanced Spider- man's powers before he released the damage it was doing to his psyche. Other hosts have been called Venom such as Eddie Brock, and now Mac Gargan.

Alexander Skarsgård

I think Skarsgard would be a great choice to play Eddie - he’s slightly younger than a lot of the other names that have been suggested, looks the part and his performance in True Blood is enough proof to me that he’s a good enough actor to really do something special with the role if he were cast.

Dominic Purcell

I’ve thought that Purcell was right for Venom since I first saw him in Prison Break. He not only looks perfect for the classic look of the character but he’s also a great actor who, I believe, would have no problem with playing all sides of Eddie Brock.

Sam Witwer

For a moment, try to forget his awful time in Smallville (in my opinion it was the script that was bad not him) and I think Witwer would make a great Eddie Brock..! That show gave him the chance to prove that he can play an intense and evil character whilst his appearance in the first season of Dexter showed that he has the ability to play insane and creepy just as well.


Carnage is the result of a spawning of a separate extraterrestrial symbiote born from Venom. Carnage bonded with serial killer Cletus Kasady, creating one of Spider-Man & Venom's most murderous and deadliest adversaries.

Michale Emerson

Anyone who has ever seen Emerson in Lost will surely agree that he is brilliant at playing one evil, psychotic SOB! Though he’s perhaps a little old, he really doesn’t look his age and is a great enough actor that I think his performance as Carnage would really be something special.

Michael C. Hall

Hall is my #1 choice for Daredevil, however at nearly 40 it seems likely that Fox will look for a slightly younger actor for their planned reboot. If that is the case, then Hall is suited to this role just as much if not more so - he’s an incredibly diverse actor, as seen in Six Feet Under and Dexter, and has shown numerous times in the latter that he can play full on scary psychotic brilliantly!

Robert Knepper

After seeing his brilliantly creepy performance in Prison Break, I think Knepper would be a great choice to play Carnage! As the murderous T-Bag, he showed that he has no trouble going from calm to full on crazy in a few seconds and I believe that he’d bring a unique and intense creepiness to the role.

Maximum Carnage

Although I’d like to see a Venom movie focus on him and his days as the “Lethal Protector”, its likely that sometime during the first movie, or possibly the sequel, that Carnage will be introduced as will the characters from the iconic, Maximum Carnage

Uma Therman as Shriek

When Carnage was imprisoned and escaped from Ravencroft, Shriek talked him into taking her with him and became his main squeeze during Maximum Carnage.

Cillian Murphy as Demogoblin

The 2nd Hobgoblin (Jason Macendale) became possessed by a demon. When Jason rid himself of the demon, the demon became Demogoblin and briefly allied itself with Carnage.

Steve Buscemi as Carrion

Able to rot flesh with just a touch Carrion is the result of Dr. Miles Warren's Carrion virus.


Venom doesn’t exactly have a huge cast of supporting characters but here are a few that I would like to see appear in the movie even if its just a small cameo as a nod to us comic book readers!

Jim Sturgess as Peter Parker/Spider-Man

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

As a teenager, Peter Parker was bitten by a radioactive spider granting him spider-like super-powers. After the death of his Uncle Ben, a death he could have prevented, Peter learned that with great power comes great responsibility and vowed to never let another innocent get hurt, fighting crime as Spider-Man.

Elizabeth Mitchell as Ann Weying

Ann Weying is the ex-wife of Eddie Brock, and briefly wore the Venom symbiote.

Jim Caviezel as Patrick Mulligan/Toxin

Toxin though still a child is the symbiote spawn/son of the vicious symbiote Carnage, and grandson of Venom. Toxin is also the most powerful of the symbiotes although his power potential and true weakness are currently unknown.

So that's it, let me know what you think in the usual place! Thanks for reading!
