Not surprisingly, at one point while filming Venom: Let There Be Carnage Woody Harrelson wanted director Andy Serkis to do the voice for the character of Carnage. Harrelson was clearly aware of the hype for the character, as fans had been looking forward to a live-action adaptation of Carnage almost since the character’s creation.
