Venom 2 will not feature Todd McFarlane, co-creator of the Marvel symbiote
We finally know the official title of the sequel starring Marvel's most famous symbiote Venom: There Will Be Killing. The film has suffered, like all current productions, a significant delay and has been moved to 2021. Some fans hoped that the character's co-creator was involved in the film, but we will not be that lucky.
Todd McFarlane has spoken exclusively to the ComicBook website to clarify this matter since, although he did not participate in the development of the first Venom film either, some expected that the legendary comic creator was somehow present in the sequel.

"As I said to people before, they didn't even contact me in any way for the first time, and that's fine!" McFarlane said. "I don't own that property and if someone is spending $ 100 million on it, and you can do whatever you want with it. If doing that means they say, 'Hey, maybe we should talk to the guy who created it visually.' they are within their rights, and if they say they do not want to do it, it is also legal. "
The creative admits that he understands why he already knows how this type of business works. He does not seem to hold any grudges against the producer and affirms that "this is why I have my own companies."
We are still waiting to see the upcoming trailer for Venom: There will be Matanza, in which we will see for the first time the character who nicknames the film, Carnage or Matanza in Spain. The film is scheduled to be released on June 25, 2021, a date that seems quite reasonable if the health crisis gives a break to theaters.
