Los Angeles, Apr 5 (PTI) Actor Woody Harrelson is rumoured to be playing supervillain Carnage in Tom Hardy-starrer “Venom”.

A new report by Bleeding Cool claimed Harrelson, who is already on board the project, will play Carnage in the Ruben Fleisher-directed film, despite his character being referred to as “a henchman of sorts”.

The report stated a source who claimed in “a very confirm-y way that not only is Carnage to appear in the upcoming ‘Venom’ movie but, yes, he will be played by Woody Harrelson.” In comics, Cranage also known as Cletus Kasady is a serial killer, who received part of the Venom alien symbiote costume which creates a far worse and far more sadistic killer than Venom.

Earlier, it was rumoured that Riz Ahmed might be playing Carnage in the film, which also stars Michelle Williams.
