UPDATE: Spider-Man producers Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach commented on this story. Read their quotes below.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is already bursting at the seams will villains; now two of the biggest not in the movie have been teased. The official Daily Bugle Tumblr site posted an article about the arrest of Cletus Kasady, written by Eddie Brock. Brock is the real name of Venom and Kasady is Carnage, an off-shoot of Venom that’s even more evil.
Neither is expected to actually be in the new film, which opens in the U.S. May 2, but with Venom eventually getting his own spin-off movie, Carnage would be a natural adversary for him as well as Spider-Man. Read more about The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Carnage and Venom below. Read More »

He talked about playing Han Solo and Indiana Jones as well as some of those characters’ more interesting quirks. His recent roles in Anchorman 2 and Expendables 3 were brought up and much more. Unfortunately, there was no mention of Star Wars Episode VII or Indiana Jones 5 but read all the highlights of the Harrison Ford AMA below. Read More »
