Speaking to IGN, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 producers Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach teased a possible villain for their Venom spin-off – the murderous symbiote Carnage.

Asked about the possible pairing, Tolmach replied diplomatically, “Exactly. The idea of Venom and Carnage… taking it into consideration. Watch out for this Venom movie. We are crazy excited.”

While Venom has frequently been controlled, suppressed and used for good, Carnage is unrepentant evil, thanks in part to its nature and in part to its host, the serial killer Cletus Kasady.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is due 2 May 2014, while The Amazing Spider-Man is out now. Order it now on DVD for £10 and Blu-ray for £14.99 from  and find out more about the comics that inspired the film with new digital magazine Uncanny Comics. Thwip thwip.
