Venom’s Riz Ahmed Won’t Answer If He’s Playing Carnage

Venom will introduce Tom Hardy’s titular anti-hero, but it’ll also feature a bunch of other symbiote supervillain types, too. As it’s loosely based on the Lethal Protector and Planet of the Symbiotes comic book arcs, the Spider-Man spinoff movie will be digging deep into the world of the gloopy, parasitic creatures.

But will we see Carnage, the most famous symbiote outside of Venom? Since the film’s production began, fans have theorized that Riz Ahmed’s Carlton Drake, who seems to be the big bad of the movie as the head of the sinister Life Foundation, could turn out to be the host of the red-faced murderous symbiote. EW put the question to Ahmed in a recent interview but the actor was smart enough to dodge it entirely.

Laughing off the inquiry, he simply said:

“I can confirm I’ll be acting in Venom.“

Riot Goes on a Rampage in New Venom International TV Trailer

Riot Goes on a Rampage in New Venom International TV Trailer
We have ourselves a new international TV trailer for Venom, which gives us a fresh look at the villain Riot. With the release coming up fast, Sony Pictures has been ramping up the marketing for what they hope will be the start of their very own comic book cinematic universe. But before they can press on with those plans, they've got to see if fans will embrace Tom Hardy's Venom in a world that won't feature Tom Holland's Spider-Man, nor will it be in any way connected to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

That's unquestionably an uphill battle to fight, but based on this new footage, they've certainly thrown a lot of money and talent at the movie to try and make it work. We first glimpsed Riot during San Diego Comic-Con, but footage of the other symbiote who will be duking it out with Venom has been somewhat scarce.

Star Wars Rebels actor describes voicing Maul in Solo: A Star Wars Story

Sam Witwer, the voice of Darth Maul in Solo: A Star Wars Story, has detailed the experience of bringing the character to life with the help of Ray Park.

Maul’s cameo in Solo: A Star Wars Story was certainly a shocking one, leaving many to wonder just how Lucasfilm pulled off such a huge surprise.

It actually took two actors to bring the character to life once again on the big screen, Ray Park (who physically played Maul) and Sam Witwer, who provided the voice. Witwer has played Maul before on animated properties like Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels but doing so on the big screen was a first for him.

Speaking to ComicBook.com, the actor described the process: “Ray and I have known each other for a while. In fact, we’ve been bumping into each other for years, not just at Cons but at restaurants and airports,

‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ 4K Uhd Blu-ray Review

Solo: A Star Wars Story is the galactic spin-off I never thought was wanted or needed. Upon viewing I want and need the story to continue in some way, shape or form. It's good old fashioned campy western fun with many nostalgic and insider hat tips for Star Wars die-hards to smile about.

Alden Ehrenreich won the unenviable right to portray an entire generation's most identifiable hero in his younger years, played originally by one of the most identifiable and famous heroic actors of all time. He gave it his all and captured Han Solo's bravado and mannerisms despite not particularly looking or sounding like Harrison Ford. It's a glass half-full or half-empty interpretation of our favorite space scoundrel. I side with half-full.

It only takes two seconds worth of a wry smile in the Solo: A Star Wars Story to realize Donald Glover was born to play young Lando Calrissian.

Review: Solo: A Star Wars Story

  • Comicmix
Those who attended Solo: A Star Wars Story during its theatrical run were treated to an entertaining adventure story, leavened with the patented humor derived from the original trilogy. It was well cast, well produced, and enjoyable. All the behind the scenes contretemps in no way spoiled the final product, which is out tomorrow from Disney Home Entertainment on a variety of discs and packages.

Yes, the version that was shot under directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller would have been dramatically different, perhaps too different for the Lucasfilm executives. We have no way of knowing since no footage has been released. The casting didn’t change and incoming Ron Howard was a good choice, able to get things up and running smoothly and delivering a satisfying movie.

So, why didn’t people flock to see the movie despite positive buzz? Hard to say. Yes, coming out so quickly after

‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ Blu-ray Review

Stars: Alden Ehrenreich, Emilia Clarke, Woody Harrelson, Donald Glover, Thandie Newton, Paul Bettany, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Joonas Suotamo, Jon Favreau | Written by Jonathan Kasdan, Lawrence Kasdan | Directed by Ron Howard

Fans of the Star Wars movies could be forgiven for having “a bad feeling about this” when it was announced that director Ron Howard would be replacing The Lego Movie duo Phil Lord and Christopher Miller several months into shooting Solo: A Star Wars Story. Fortunately, Howard proves a dab hand at the Star Wars game, delivering a thrilling space adventure that pulls off a tricky balancing act, a story that’s rich in references and callbacks to the previous Star Wars film, while still managing to stand as its own thing.

Set several years before the events of Star Wars: A New Hope, the film begins on the crime-infested planet of Corellia, where young Han and his girlfriend Qi’ra

Blu-ray Review – Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018)

Solo: A Star Wars Story, 2018.

Directed by Ron Howard.

Starring Alden Ehrenreich, Joonas Suotamo, Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke, Paul Bettany, Donald Glover, Thandie Newton, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Jon Favreau, Linda Hunt, Ian Kenny, John Tui, and Warwick Davis.

Synopsis:

The second (and last?) standalone Star Wars movie serves up the origin story of everyone’s favorite smuggler and all-around scoundrel, Han Solo. Star Alden Ehrenreich doesn’t quite embody Solo’s swagger, but Donald Glover steals the movie as young Lando, and the rest of the cast does its job. I put this one up there with The Force Awakens among the new Star Wars movies. This Blu-ray release has a second high-def disc with about two hours of bonus features.

Disney boss says expect Star Wars “slowdown” in the wake of Solo: A Star Wars Story

The journey to the cinema screen for Solo: A Star Wars Story is so well documented that even a protracted Star Wars scrawl couldn’t condense the hirings, firings, castings, and eventual catastrophe, but now the dust kicked up by the Millennium Falcon has settled, Disney head honcho Bob Iger has been speaking to The Hollywood Reporter about the future of the franchise.

When pressed about the amount of adventures in a galaxy far, far away, Iger had the following to say:

“I made the timing decision, and as I look back, I think the mistake that I made — I take the blame — was a little too much, too fast. You can expect some slowdown, but that doesn’t mean we’re not going to make films. J.J. [Abrams] is busy making Episode IX. We have creative entities, including [Game of Thrones creators David] Benioff and [D.B.] Weiss, who are developing sagas of their own,

Venom Takes a Bite Out of Crime in Two New Promo Spots For Venom

We've got two new promo spots for Venom for you to watch today. The first one mostly teases Venom’s desire to eat people. Venom certainly has a reputation for eating people and this film will give us the PG-13 version of that. I’m not expecting much for this film, but maybe it will surprise me. The second promo features some new footage form the Riot and Venom fight in the film!

The movie was inspired by the 1993 six-issue Venom: Lethal Protector comic miniseries. The story followed Venom moving to San Francisco after he and Spider-Man made a truce. Once in San Francisco, Venom is hunted down by the Life Foundation, who wants to study the Venom symbiote so they can use it for their own evil purposes. From it, they create five new symbiote spawn including Scream, Phage, Riot, Lasher, and Agony.

The film stars Tom Hardy, Michelle Williams

Solo: A Star Wars Story’s Phoebe Waller-Bridge would happily return as L3-37 in the future

Phoebe Waller-Bridge, the actress behind the droid L3-37 in Solo: A Star Wars Story, says that she would happily play the character “forever”.

There were plenty of memorable components in this year’s Solo: A Star Wars Story, from Maul’s cameo to the Kessel Run, but another of these was certainly the antics of L3-37, Lando’s opinionated droid.

But would actress Phoebe Waller-Bridge be open to reprising the role in film’s set before the events of Solo? We’ll let her enthusiastic remarks to Vanity Fair in a recent interview answer that question:

“That would be a scream. I can imagine she has quite the past. Who knows what these imaginations will come up with next? I could play L3 forever.”

While future films set just before Solo isn’t a likely occurrence at this point, who knows what the future might hold. And, of course,

Thanks to the longevity of Star Wars, movie-lovers across the generations have a huge love for the franchise, with many dreaming that they might one day get to be a part of the action.

One of these people is actor Ethan Hawke, a huge Star Wars fan who would love nothing more than to one day appear in the films. Speaking on Conan, the actor said: “I’ve never been in one, no, and the truth is, it’s okay, because there weren’t very many of them, but now there’s a lot of them and I still haven’t been in them. I would definitely play a Wookiee. I would do that so well.

Venom’s VFX supervisor reveals the origin of symbiotes in the film

Paul Franklin, the VFX supervisor for Venom, has gone into detail about the film’s new origin story for symbiotes.

There’s plenty of the unknown when it comes to the upcoming Venom movie, especially as it’s a film that doesn’t involve the title character’s arch nemesis Spider-Man. Another is just how the film will present the existence of symbiotes, the specimen that uses Tom Hardy’s Eddie Brock as a host.

Well, explaining all to IGN, Paul Franklin, the VFX supervisor on the film, said: “We see, at the beginning of the film, the moment when the symbiotes are collected up by a Life Foundation space probe, which finds them on a comet drifting through space, approaching Earth. And the space probe is out there looking for signs of life, and they can’t believe their luck. There’s life signals everywhere, all across this asteroid.
