Venom 2 Theories: Tom Hardy Respond to Toxin Appearance

The recent trailers for Venom: Let There Be Carnage have managed to garner a huge amount of excitement in the fans, at the same time not giving up too much of what will go down in the film. The first Venom movie was a shocking success, managing to rake in a massive $856 million at the box office.

After all, this would be the first ever appearance of Cletus Kassady aka Carnage in a film.

The movie will see Tom Hardy returning as Eddie Brock aka Venom, along with Michelle Williams who plays Brock’s love interest. In addition, Woody Harrelson will be portraying Kassady, who turns into Carnage. Venom: Let There Be Carnage is set to hit theatres sometime around September this year. As a part of the movie’s promotion, the stars have been answering fans’ questions and talking about the theories that have come up. Read on to find out what Tom Hardy had to say about the theories that say that Toxin will be making an appearance in the movie.

As far as the major characters are concerned, we can say with guarantee that Cletus Kasady aka Carnage (Woody Harrelson) and Frances Louise Barrison aka Shriek (Naomie Harris) will be there in the movie. This much can be concluded by watching the two trailers that have been released so far. However, many people think they have also spotted hints of another Spider-Man villain in the trailers. According to theories, signs point to the arrival of comic book character Patrick Mulligan, the police officer who becomes a host for the symbiote Toxin. This indeed a huge deal, since the comics depict Toxin as being more powerful even than Carnage. In fact, Toxin is spawned by Carnage, and after growing in power even takes over Eddie Brock for a time.

There has however been no official confirmation from Sony’s side as to this. Speaking in a new interview with Esquire, Tom Hardy provided encouragement for fans to keep on theorizing, even though he didn’t confirm anything. When asked flat out about Toxin theories, Hardy according to the interviewer made hard-to-decipher hand gestures that they interpreted as the actor saying “Stay tuned.”
