Venom: Let There Be Carnage Deleted Scene: Carnage Will Eat Your Face

Venom is back, but unfortunately, so is his unholy spawn. Following the success of Marvel's "Venom" in 2018, the sassy symbiote returns in "Venom: Let There Be Carnage." The superhero film once again follows investigative journalist Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy), who, through a series of unfortunate events, ended up playing host to an alien species. In that respect, the "Venom" films have been read as buddy comedies, like "Midnight Run" or "Booksmart." But now, Brock is tasked to find and stop a serial killer named Cletus Kasady, played by Woody Harrelson, who has become host to Venom's spawn, Carnage.

"Venom: Let There Be Carnage" is directed by Andy Serkis, whose experience with CGI and motion capture in the "Lord of the Rings" and "Planet of the Apes" lends itself to the CG-utilizing story of stringy, slaying symbiotes. "Venom" co-writer Kelly Marcel penned the sequel's script based on a story co-written with Hardy. 

Carnage isn't the greatest guy, as evidenced by this extended, deleted clip from the film courtesy of an IGN exclusive. In it, the symbiote entreats Cletus Kasady and his partner, Frances Louise Barrison (known as Shriek in the Marvel comics), to help him take over the world — collateral damage be damned. Check out the deleted scene from "Venom: Let There Be Carnage" below.

'Why look to God when you have Him right here?'

"We will all have our revenge," Carnage pitches to the wayward couple, "We have an opportunity to make a mark on this world so indelible, our names will be history itself." He calls humans "pestilence" and calls for a human-symbiote hybrid race. This "new breed" would dominate Earth, and all other races would be "expelled."

It's not the first time a Marvel villain has advocated for ethnic cleansing — M.O.D.O.K.'s entire m.o. is human annihilation in various forms; he even tries to test a biological agent, Virus X, on the homeless population. There's even a Marvel supervillain called Genocide! In any case, Kasady and Shriek don't seem too broken up about the proposition, as long as they get their revenge. Seems callous, but they literally came from the St. Estes Home for Unwanted Children, it's right there in the name. They were forgotten, which is motivation enough for most comic baddies. Apparently the director didn't think the scene too necessary, but it's available on the special features along with over an hour of bloopers, deleted scenes.

But don't tell Carnage that you don't like it, or he'll eat your face.

"Venom: Let There Be Carnage" arrives on 4K UHD, Blu-ray, and DVD on December 14, 2021.
