Carnage, AKA Cletus Kasady, is (finally) being considered for an onscreen role in the upcoming [Venom](movie:372411) film spinoff, says producers Matt Tolmach and Avi Arad.

During a recent interview with IGN, the Sony producers were asked about this Daily Bugle Tumblr post about "serial killer, Cletus Kasady" (written by Eddie Brock of course).

Arad replied, "What a great idea."

Tolmach also chimed in, "Exactly. The idea of Venom and Carnageā€¦ taking it into consideration. Watch out for this Venom movie. We are crazy excited."

Of course, Venom is still a few years away. While no release date has yet been announced, the film is being directed by Alex Kurtzman, who directed the soon-to-hit theaters [The Amazing Spider-Man 2](movie:508593), along with Fringe and Star Trek, just to name a few).

Arad and Tolmach are clearly not promising anything here, but it's clear that they recognize the value in both Carnage and Venom's massive appeal for Spider-Man fans, especially since the villains have yet to get their box office due.

But is Hollywood truly ready for the brutality of a villain like Carnage to hit the big screen? Considering the reluctance from Fox to let an R-rated Deadpool movie hit theaters, Carnage and Venom may have to be declawed a bit. Let's just say it will be tricky to keep that PG-13 rating. Regardless, the film will probably be pitting Venom vs. Carnage, though don't expect that film to have a clear "hero."
