A new rumor over at That Hashtag Show – who has been all over the Venom scoops since early casting – suggests that Woody Harrelson is secretly playing Kasady. Getting to this requires potential spoilers, especially being that they claim to know how the film will end…
According to their source, Carnage will, unfortunately, have no part to play in the main body of the film.
“We know that filming recently took place in San Francisco and it appears that near the end of the film, possibly in a post-credit sequence, Brock will find himself in San Quentin prison, located just to the north of San Francisco. At San Quentin, it appears that Kasady finds himself under the care of Dr. Ashley Kafka, who introduces him to Brock but cautions him to keep his distance. From what our source is telling us, it is during this meeting between Brock and Kasady that a portion of Brock’s symbiote begins making its way towards Kasady before we are cut to black!”
As for Harrelson, here’s some speculation (no, this isn’t a sequel to Life):
As for which actor could be playing Kasady, we don’t have any confirmation, but we can tell you this: back in December, Woody Harrelson was cast in Venom in a role described as a “henchman of sorts.” Despite numerous set pictures revealing most of the cast, not one picture of Harrelson on set ever emerged…

For weeks, star-studded trailers for Dundee: The Son of a Legend Returns Home have been making their Internet rounds making people ask, “Is this a real movie?” Our questions were finally answered tonight during the Super Bowl when it was revealed that all of these bizarre movie trailers to a what seemed like another sequel to the 1986 film Crocodile Dundee were nothing but an elaborate tourism campaign for Australia. Well played, mate.
The sequel was presented as a buddy comedy, featuring McBride as Brian Dundee, the long-lost son of Mick Dundee Chris Hemsworth as his sidekick, Wally Jr. The teasers led viewers to believe that Mick was lost in the outback, and only the American son no one knew he had would be able to find him. Cue Brian Dundee returning to the Australian outback to find his father.
Bravo to Tourism Australia for making us believe that an awesome sequel like this was actually happening. This will definitely open the doors to more elaborate “movie” campaigns set up to trick us.
