Venom Comics writer criticizes Let There Be Carnage’s symbiote portrayal
After a clip of Venom: Let There Be Carnage got the name of the Symbiote House wrong, comic book writer Donny Cates called it on social media.
Donny Cates, the author of several Venom comics, criticizes how Venom: let there be carnage represents symbionts. After being delayed from last year due to the coronavirus pandemic, the 2018 surprise follow-up has hit Venom will finally arrive in theaters next week. Venom: let there be carnage is directed by Andy Serkis and again stars Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock, a reporter who now reluctantly coexists with the titular chocolate-loving symbiote. While the first film covered their initial meeting and partnership, Venom 2 will watch the unlikely couple adjust more to life with each other.
One thing that will make things even more difficult is the emergence of another symbiote. As the title suggests, Venom 2 will feature the arrival of the villainous Carnage. The Red Symbiote takes serial killer Cletus Kasady (Woody Harrelson) as their host after Eddie comes in to interview him, and Kasady and Carnage’s partnership appears to be devastating. The promise of watching the two symbiotes go head to head is one of the most exciting parts of Venom: let there be carnage, although there is at least one person online who bristles at the way the movie portrays them.
Cates recently concluded the Venom the comics he started in 2018 and within that series he rocked the tradition of symbiotes. That’s why he couldn’t help but comment on a new clip of Venom: let there be carnage, who sees Eddie cursing Venom and saying he was “launched the planet Ming-Mar.” In response, Cats wrote, “It’s not how you pronounce Klyntar but it’s okay“, referring to the planet set up in the comics. Cates added:”(Plus, the symbiotes don’t actually have a home planet. The word Klyntar is actually their word for cage and it’s… oh, whatever. Either way.). “

It’s not entirely clear if Cates is seriously bothered by Venom: let there be carnagefreedoms or if he just doesn’t care. When the comics hit the big screen, elements of the story and characterizations are often changed. Moreover, while the first Venom Lightly touched on the symbiote’s journey to Earth, there’s a lot about its origins that hasn’t been discussed on screen. Cates’ work could remain canon in the Sony universe; it just wasn’t mentioned in detail.
Venom: let there be carnage carries high expectations since the first film was so well received by fans. The first reactions to Venom 2 all praised the thrilling action and Harrelson’s arrival as Kasady, so it could be that even those who prefer a more accurate portrayal of the comics will be won over by Serkis’ film. There will likely be a lot of things fans will discuss when Venom: let there be carnage kicks off next week, so the conversation is just getting started. Everyone better hang on.
