During the interview, Serkis said he had a great time working on Venom: let there be carnage but his schedule is currently filled with various other projects.

“Listen, I had fun [Venom: Let There Be Carnage]. Tom Hardy is such a good friend of mine, and I felt very proud of the work, and we had so much fun doing it. To be the guardian of this franchise for a little while was awesome,” Serkis told the site. “I have so many plans that I was about to [work on], like ‘Animal Farm’ for example. We were about to go into production with that, and then we delayed the release of ‘Venom’. I really have to be on top of the ones I’ve been building for so long.

Meanwhile, Andy Serkis had nothing but good things to say about his successor Kelly Marcel. “I’m really thrilled that Kelly is doing this,” added the filmmaker. “She controls this material so much with Tom. They are a great team to work with. I can’t wait to see what they come up with. »

Venom and its follow-up Venom: let there be carnage earned $1.36 billion at the worldwide box office. After their release, Tom Hardy reprized his role as the anti-hero for the post-credits scene of Spider-Man: No Coming Homesetting up the long-awaited debut of the Symbiote suit for Tom Holland’s Peter Parker.
