VENOM 2

‘Venom 2’ Director Andy Serkis Has “Very Clear Ideas” About Where to Take the Sequel

Quote:
Andy Serkis will direct the Venom sequel. Serkis was on a Television Critics Association panel for FX’s miniseries A Christmas Carol, so reporters were able to ask Serkis about directing Venom 2.

Since Serkis just signed on to direct this week, it’s not surprising that his answers at this point are a tad vague. He did answer several questions before moving on to A Christmas Carol, so let’s dive into his visual plans, his history with Tom Hardy, and his approach to directing, as well as Serkis’ thoughts on Amazon’s Lord of the Rings streaming series.

Andy Serkis Has “Very Clear Ideas”
Venom 2 will be the biggest film Serkis has directed to date. He previously directed Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle, which had plenty of performance capture characters, and the intimate biography Breathe. Between Mowgli and Serkis’ history with performance capture in the Planet of the Apes films, King Kong, and Lord of the Rings, the visuals of Venom will be in his wheelhouse.

“I’m right at the beginning stages,” Serkis said. “I’ve got some very clear ideas about the journey I’d like to see visually and how we can take the characters into another dimension.”

Serkis Puts Trust in Hardy and His Collaborators
Before Venom came out, Hardy said in the press that 40 minutes of his favorite material had been deleted. Since the film was a hit, perhaps Hardy will get his way on the sequel.

“Tom is very involved with the writing with Kelly Marcel of the new story, so it’s very much centered around their take,” Serkis said.

Andy Serkis is an accomplished director and performer in his own right. He certainly warrants the authority of the director’s chair. However, Serkis’ approach is to create an inclusive environment with all his collaborators.

“What I’ve learned from directing full stop is you’re working with an extraordinarily team of highly talented people and to create an atmosphere where everyone is able to do their work to 150%,” Serkis said. “As much as anything, directing is about creating an atmosphere of people not being afraid to step forward with their very best work.”

Hardy is someone with whom Serkis had been trying to collaborate for many years.

“I’ve known Tom for many years and always admired him hugely as an actor and producer,” Serkis said. “We’ve always wanted to work together directly. I’m deeply excited to work with Tom Hardy and to work with all the great actors who are involved in it. It’s a fantastic franchise. I’m really honored to have been asked to direct it and it feels like it’s a very contemporary story. I think it’s going to be hopefully an extraordinary piece of cinema.”

Please god no! Especially after seeing Kevin Feige's incredibly weak effort with Spider-Man: Homecoming. Plus Sony just gave us such a refreshing take on the character with Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.

Gonna have to disagree with 'incredibly weak effort', big buddy

Spider-Man side characters having their own little universe without the actual Spider-Man is retarded. MCU is the obvious be all and end all. Sony will always be missing something when it comes to Spider-Man.

Well it made over $850 million and was one of the biggest movies of the year, so no surprise a sequel is already in the works.

Re: VENOM 2 (TBA)

Haven't seen Venom (yet) but are there any references to Spider-Man/Peter Parker? They could easily go with a live-action Miles for Sony's Marvel Universe, since there seems to be no end in sight with already going full steam ahead on Morbius, and Black Cat and Silver Sable in very early stages. Miles for SMU and keeping Tom Holland's Peter for MCU, Sony can essentially have their cake and eat it too.

For Disney to do Homecoming tier stuff, the rights are better off staying with Sony. I'm hyped for Venom 2.

Will just be another turd in the wind. I couldn't sit through the first one. Just give the entire Spider-Man IP back where it belongs so we can continue getting GOOD Spider-Man based films.

Re: VENOM 2 (TBA)

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is a masterpiece compared to the average Spider-Man: Homecoming, and Venom was more fun. I'm excited for the Venom sequel with Carnage. Sony keep doin your thang cuz!

HUH, spiderman homecoming was the best live action spiderman we have seen. And it had the best villain as well

That being said, if Venom wants to have spiderman in it, give them Miles, and let MCU keep Peter
