Which means nothing to the majority of movie audiences. This "wonderful amount of stories and characters" are known only to the comic buying audience who aren't nearly large enough to be catered to by the studios. Adaptations before Venom have made major changes and far more extreme than anything Venom did.
Hmmmh thinking about it harder, well the movies not very good anyway so it’s not much of a loss in the end indeed.
Production weekly lists all the shows/movies currently in production and "VENOM 2 (w/t FILLMORE)" is right there.
I have no idea why the working title of the film would be "Fillmore" though.
Sometimes films are given a working title that's deliberately obscure in order to disguise what the project actually is.
Like. If you start production on Venom 2 and then Venom 1 bombs, it's harder to kill the film after the public's already caught wind of it.
But if you're working on "Fillmore" and then Venom bombs, nobody cares if "Fillmore" suddenly disappears off the working slate.
It's standard practice for many big films nowadays. The Avengers had a code name of "Group Hug" when filming in public places, though obviously the deception didn't last long once passerby could see Thor and Loki walking around.
Back to the Future, Part II I think had a working title of "Paradox".
Isn't it also done to deter piracy or bootleg footage of the film?
It makes the film cheaper overall, companies and locations will jack up prices knowing the movie is a big blockbuster. I believe Return of the Jedi started that trend by claiming to be an indie horror movie called Blue Harvest.
Surprised no company has tried to sue for false representation.
Wouldn't surprise me if someone hasn't tried, but they would have to contend with corporate lawyers, compartmentalization (ie location scouting company is separate from the main studio) and ex post facto laws generally protect them. "I would have charged more if I knew it was Star Wars" is not exactly grounds for criminal misconduct. They would have to have evidence of breaking the contract itself: not informing them of blowing stuff up, accidentally setting things on fire or not cleaning up gallons of fake blood.
According to rumors, there will be a secondary villain alongside Carnage.
It's going to be Shriek.
I'm still not sold on Woody Allen as Carnage, but I love the idea of putting Shriek and Carnage together. Their creepy campy murder-couple romance was the best part of Maximum Carnage, and it was always a shame that later writers didn't really follow up on that.
Wrong Woody. Certainly loathsome just like Carnage, but Venom 2's Woody is Woody Harrelson.

Wonder if he'll still have that gloriously stupid-looking hair he did in the first movie.
I thought that said Shrek at first and got very confused.
Naomie Harris is in talks to play Shriek.
IIRC, whoever does play Shriek is going to be under a ton of makeup the whole movie. I mean with Domino in Deadpool 2 they avoided that by inverting the colors (black on white instead of white on black) but there’s no real doing that here.
When did the chalky white skin for characters become a big thing? I think it was the 90’s mostly.

I read that as Naomie Harris is in talks to play Shrek.

I want to say it might have started with Morbuis the vampire who debuted in the 70s but there might have been early examples.
Tom Holland is in talks to cameo as Spider-Man in Venom 2.

Oh no, the current Spider-Man actor may have a minor role appearing as Spider-Man in an upcoming movie about Spider-Man characters. What a grievous crime against humanity.
"Dreaded", dude? Really?
Chill with the hyperbole. Venom wasn't that bad.
, : Okay, maybe "dreaded" was stretching it. I'll have it fixed ASAP.
I was under the impression that at least some of us still see SUMC as an exercise for Sony to get on the shared universe bandwagon the quick and cheap way.
(Anyone heard anything new about Morbius?)
Real talk though, I guess this could go either way...
EDIT: Did some thinking and if Sony really wants their micro universe to be MCU canon, there might be some connective tissue if Venom 1 is retconned to taking place during Endgame's five year time skip and Venom 2 takes place after Far From Home, which found Peter on the lam no thanks to Mysterio.
But it's Sony, so I'm feeling less than confident about it...
