Sony Pictures Venom: Let There Be Carnage has set another major record this weekend as it crossed more than $100 million on the box office. The film has become one of the fastest to reach the milestone. The superhero film now stands with Marvel Studios Shang-Chi and the Legends of Ten Rings to hold the record of passing $100 million on the box office after the Coronavirus Pandemic.

Venom: Let There Be Carnage also performed well on its opening night 30th September, as it earned a total of $11.6 million. After its exceptional performance on its opening day at the box office, fans and the studio had already started speculating about its weekend box office collection.

Recently, the leading actor of the film Tom Hardy, who portrays the role of Eddie Brock, also known as Venom, addressed the future of his character Eddie Brock.

He said, "I like to see Eddie Brock as a professional coward. Sort of a vain, lazy, narcissistic everyman in many ways... I think he's a noble soul, but I just think he's come to a certain path when Venom appears. And it's horrendous."

Hardy added, “You have this primal beast who says we should do absolutely anything we want because we can. And it doesn't matter about consequences because it's insignificant, which is like the greatest therapy you could ever have, except, you know, it means running around biting people's heads off and ripping buildings apart."

Last week, Hardy, who played the role of Bane in Dark Knight Rises, disclosed major details in an interview about his character.

He said, "That was actually a really cool choice that Chris [Nolan] made. Bane quintessentially is Latinx in origin...and I’m not. So I looked at the concept of Latin and found a man called Bartley Gorman, who’s a Romany gypsy. The king of the gypsies, in inverted commas, is a bare-knuckle fighter and a boxer. And he said [doing Bane-like voice],

He added, “When I get into a ring with a man, and we want to wipe you off the face of the Earth, and he wants to kill me.” And I was like this is great. And I showed Chris. I said Chris, we can either go down a sort of arch Darth Vader route, straight just neutral tone villain voice, or we could try this. And this I’ve been thinking of just in case we’ve got to consider the roots and origins of Bane. But we could get laughed out of the part of it, it might be something that we regret, but it’s your choice ultimately. He says, no I think we’ll go with it. And that was that. And we played with it and made it a bit more fluid, and now people love it [laughs]."
