Venom 2’s Official Title Has Marvel Fans Scratching Their Heads
In case there was any remaining doubt, Woody Harrelson’s Carnage is officially coming to the Venom-verse. That news is hardly a surprise, as the character AKA serial killer Cletus Kasady made a mid-credits appearance in 2018’s Venom.
“When I get outta here… and I will… There’s gonna be carnage.”
Now, the latest buzz surrounding the Marvel Comics baddie involves its name… in the brand-new title for the upcoming second Venom movie.
Per The Hollywood Reporter, the folks at Sony Pictures have announced that the Venom sequel will formally be released as Venom: Let There Be Carnage.
Even as that subtitle seems suitably silly for the over-the-top world conjured in the original film, it’s also proving divisive. Just minutes after Sony made the big announcement, Venom fans the world over took to Twitter to voice their opinions on the Let There Be Carnage subtitle with some showing serious love for the choice, and others hating everything about it.
Unsurprisingly, fans on the “hating” side of things aren’t being particularly kind to the subtitle. User Primate_X bluntly tweeted:
“Why do these movies have such dumb subtitles? Just name it Venom 2 and be done with it.”
Another offered her own subtitles for the sequel.
Others have noted that “Let There Be Carnage” sounds more like a tagline than a title, while one Twitter user said that the title is “so dumb” and another wrote that it, quote, “sounds like a SNES game and not a good one.”
Twitter reactions to the Venom sequel’s official title weren’t all negative, however. User LIZZIEMAXIMOFF professed her love for the title. She tweeted:
“Venom: let there be carnage is such a good title I’m shaking.”
Y’know, it’s that kind of positivity that rejuvenates our faith in fandoms!
“Your world is not so ugly after all. I’m almost sorry to see it end.”
While the hot online debate about Venom 2’s official title is sure to continue burning in the coming days, Sony’s announcement came with a tinge of legitimate bad news as well. The studio confirmed that Venom: Let There Be Carnage has been delayed from its planned October 2, 2020 release date. Keep watching the video to see how Venom 2’s official title has Marvel fans scratching their heads.
