Venom: Let There Be Carnage may have used fan art to create one of the film’s recently released posters for Michelle Williams’ character.
Venom: let there be carnage is slated to hit theaters next month, and marketing at Sony Pictures has been busy promoting the new movie. Recently, the upcoming sequel released several character posters, including ones featuring stars Tom Hardy and Michelle Williams. However, GameRant received exclusive advice claiming that original fan art could have been used to create one of these posters.
Venom: let there be carnage is the sequel to the 2018 Sony film Venom. Based on the Marvel Comics Spider-Man villain of the same name, the film starred Hardy as Eddie Brock, an ambitious investigative reporter who fuses with an alien symbiote called Venom. The film wasn’t exactly a critical darling and was mocked by many fans, but it also developed a sort of tongue-in-cheek appreciation for its ridiculous plot and Hardy’s hilarious performance. The film also starred Williams as Eddie’s lover Anne Weying. Williams is set to reprise her role in the upcoming sequel, and as a result, she is one of several stars to receive her own character poster.
If you look closely at his poster, you can see a glimpse of a character known to some as “She-Venom”. This is the alter ego of Williams’ character when she merges with the alien symbiote. This occurs at a pivotal moment in the first film, and on the basis of this Venom 2 poster, Williams’ character is likely to merge with the symbiote again in the sequel. However, it looks like this poster used some original fan art for the outline of the character. Fan Art is an original piece that was posted on DeviantArt by the user spaceMAXmarine back in 2018.
Although it is not surprising that Venom: let there be carnage would like to use this iconic image for their poster, the original artist deserves some credit for their work. It’s also worth noting that when searching for “She-Venom” in the Google Image Search, this fan art is one of the first results. At least spaceMAXmarine deserves a shout out for their influential work, or maybe even compensation for the use of their art.
You can view more than spaceMAXmarine’s work on their DeviantArt Page, which includes other awesome fan art for characters like Spider-Gwen and The Flash from DC Comics. Directed by Andy Serkis, Venom: let there be carnage also stars Woody Harrelson and Naomi Harris.
Venom: let there be carnage premieres in theaters on October 1, 2021.
