VENOM 2 Set Video Features A Massive Carnage Stand-In Wrecking A Distraught Eddie Brock's Car

Some new videos from the set of Venom 2 reveal a stand-in for Carnage as the villain tears Eddie Brock's car to pieces while a frantic Tom Hardy screams on in the background. Check them out after the jump!

Venom 2 is currently shooting in San Francisco, and we have some very intriguing set videos today. As you can see below, Carnage (an actor wearing a motion capture suit with the villain's head on top of his own, proving that he'll be as massive as Venom) tears Eddie Brock's car to pieces as the hapless journalist screams at him from his apartment above. 

Why Eddie isn't leaping into action as Venom to stop him is hard to say, but it sounds like Carnage shouts something along the lines of "You want me to come up and show you a real fight?" at him.

The whole scene feels a tad comedic, and probably not what a lot of fans were hoping for when it comes to a confrontation between Venom and Carnage. Still, it's important to note that this has been taken out of context, and it's hard to say for sure what's going on beyond what we see on the surface.

Our first look at the Venom sequel does promises to be interesting, though, and Carnage definitely looks like a force to be reckoned with. Given the quirky nature of the first movie, there's bound to be some concern that he'll be a comedic character, but here's hoping that's not the case.

from the first movie, including an early take on Carnage!

As you can see, Venom has no chest symbol here and looks a lot like the Ultimate version of the character as a result. Still, something is definitely better than nothing, as you'll see below.

Venom has a chest logo here and it looks a lot like the one from the comics. Unfortunately, Sony decided not to include that, presumably because this version of Venom hasn't met Spider-Man.

This is a very extreme take on Venom, but he looks awesome and it would be great to see the Symbiote evolve into this monstrous form in the sequel, especially when he faces off with Carnage!

These designs should definitely remind you of the comic books, as Venom is sporting more of a blue hue. Artist Matt Millard did a great job of imagining how the character could look on screen.

"One of my first task on this movie was to infuse some life in the Character, play around with Venom and make a series of quick studies showing him not as a 3D model but as a creature with a distinct personality (there is a sort of grotesque joyfulness in the character I really love, especially in the Lethal Protector comics)," concept artist Paolo Giandoso says about these pieces.

"Then I was asked to design ways for the Symbiote to slither over Eddie's face and create Venom," he continues. "In my mind, the symbiote, being a shapeshifter, can potentially grow teeth, gums, eyes and tongues wherever it wants over his surface. All its matter has the potential to become these sort of features.

"It just chooses to create them on the face to arrange them in a way is more functional for a bipedal host. I wanted to give the idea of these features emerging and rearranging, lines of teeth moving and sliding around until they compose the final shape we all know."
It's a shame we didn't see more of that green slime, eh?








So, yeah, that looks a lot like Carnage, right? "I was tasked with concepting the whole symbiote final fight, mechanics and all, the way the Venom and his evil counterpart clash together and merge, until the final sacrifice scene after the rocket explosion," Giandoso explains. With that in mind, common sense says that Carnage was probably used as just a stand-in here. 





"These images are a small section of a deleted scene from the beginning of the third act, in which Eddie confront his buddy about his hypocrisy and they finally make peace and move on to save the world," Giandoso notes. It would have been really cool to see this before the final battle but it arguably wasn't needed as these two managed to make amends in a somewhat simpler exchange. 

Many thanks to artists David MassonMatt Millard, and Paolo Giandoso.
