When I get out of here, and I will... there's gonna be carnage.
~ Kasady to Eddie Brock

Cletus Kasady aka Carnage is a minor antagonist who appears in the mid-credits scene of the 2018 film Venom. He is a notorious serial killer who is currently locked away in San Quentin Prison, where reporter Eddie Brock interviewed him. He will be the main antagonist of the sequel of Venom.

He was portrayed by Woody Harrelson, who also played Colonel McCullough in War for the Planet of the Apes, and Tobias Beckett in Solo: A Star Wars Story.

History

Past

When he was a child, Kasady was born in Brooklyn, New York and grew up in St. Estes home after becoming an orphan. There, Cletus was already showing signs of psychopathy, including being very antisocial and even torturing and killing his mother's dog with a drill. Sometime later, St. Estes caught on fire due to mysterious reasons, killing the headmaster and possibly many others. It is entirely possible and very likely that Cletus himself caused the fire to kill the disciplinarian headmaster out of revenge, which Eddie Brock speculates on his notes. Later in his life, he murdered countless people, starting with his own grandmother, whom he pushed down a flight of stairs. He also killed a woman by pushing her in front of a bus when she rejected his romantic advances. Eddie's notes on him reveal he also dug up his own mother's grave for unknown reasons, to which Eddie speculates as Cletus having an Oedipus Complex. He was presumably apprehended years before the events of Venom.

Interview with Eddie Brock

Following the deaths of Riot and Carlton Drake, Eddie Brock was on a motorcycle trip to San Quentin Prison to do an interview with a mystery convict to see if he will help the FBI identify more potential bodies. After receiving an ominous warning from one of the prison guards, the mystery convict is revealed to be Cletus Kasady. When Eddie enters his cell, Cletus writes "Welcome Eddie" with his own blood. During the interview, Cletus tells Eddie to "forgo the whole creepy serial killer thing", claiming he can turn the serial-killer act on and off whenever he wants. Afterward, Cletus tells Eddie to get closer to him and afterward boldly claimed he planned to break out of prison and unleash "carnage" upon society.
