Marvel Cinematic Universe’s counterpart or alternative timeline came into existence in 2017 by the Spider-Man archenemy flick Venom. The film was directed by Ruben Fleischer and starred Tom Hardy and Michelle Williams in the lead role. Sony was the head of all this operation whose only motive was to create a separate universe with the help of Spider-Man villains whose rights were in Sony’s house.
The film earned mixed reviews in terms of its not-so-interesting plot and divisive storyline but it did manage to collect a whopping 800 Million Dollars at the global box office. The film depicted a news reporter who comes in contact with an alien symbiote taking charge of the host human body and forming an exoskeleton type structure around him. Tom Hardy played the eponymous reporter who went against Riz Ahmed’s Riot who was also a symbiote.
The next installment in the universe is scheduled to come out in the form of Morbius played by Jared Leto. The plot follows a biologist who suffers from a rare bone disease gets successful in creating a cure for it but when he injects it into his body things start going in the opposite direction as he develops a hunger for blood and achieves the power of echolocation.
The film will be followed by a direct sequel to Venom titled Venom Let There Be Carnage directed by Andy Serkis who is by far the most talented and versatile human being on Earth today as he is a motion capture actor, normal actor, and a director. The film will focus on the character of Carnage played by Woody Harrelson who will be serving as the film’s main antagonist and will be going toe to toe against Tom Hardy’s Venom.
Venom Let There Be Carnage comes out on September 17, 2021, and Morbius will be hitting the cinemas on January 21, 2022.
