In Venom: Let There Be Carnage, on display since October 20, the anti-hero played by Tom Hardy faces the terrifying Carnage. Played by Woody Harrelson, this villain is partly inspired by a small animal …
First appearing in the post-credits scene of Venom (2018), Cletus Kasady is the main antagonist of the second episode, currently in theaters.
A psychopathic serial killer, this character played by Woody Harrelson becomes even more dangerous when he bites Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy) and ingests a small part of Venom, allowing him to transform into a red symbiote even more impressive than the hero: Carnage.
To create the movements of this supervillain with many tentacles, the technical team drew their inspiration from a very real animal: the scorpion. This is what the film’s visual effects supervisor, Sheena Duggal, revealed in an interview for Variety.
“The way a scorpion wiggles its tail behind its head and advances in a threatening manner, I thought, ‘Let’s do this with Carnage’She explains. This is how she was able to give importance to the way the symbiote impales her opponents and makes different weapons with her tentacles as part of her transformation.
But scorpions weren’t the only inspiration for Carnage. TO IGN, director Andy Serkis spoke about the research work to make the movements of Cletus’ alter-ego unique. “We watched each of the comics that involve Carnage and looked at all of the ways he physically moved and how he could transform.”, He begins.
He pursues : “We brought in parkour artists and dancers and we really experienced that fluidity. We wanted him to move in a different way than Venom so we used their movements to generate a very … twisted, malicious, and very different energy than Venom’s when he moves and fights.”
