Jim Carrey Rumored to Play Carnage’s Host in The Amazing Spider-Man 2


While he might not be willing to promote the gun violence in Kick-Ass 2, the big comic book movie rumor of the day is that Jim Carrey might be playing Cletus Kasady, better known as Carnage, one of Spider-Man’s most demented and violent villains, in the forthcoming Marc Webb-directed sequel The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

but what about venom lol

tristanwerbe2831d ago

He wont be Carnage in the movie but be the host, carnage comes later ;)

DarkBlood2831d ago

so more like a hint for the next movie or so right?

crxss2831d ago

Jim Carrey would be an amazing carnage.

pompombrum2831d ago

I was going to say that this is the first I've heard of Carnage in the films. Always wanted to see Carnage in the movies and with today's effects, I imagine it would be totally possible.

Trunkz Jr2831d ago

Jim Carry would be a great actor for the part of Cletus Kasady who's character is a psychopath and a homicidal sadist, at Carrys age he has the look that can pull off it off and the acting ability to easily handle that psychopath mentality .

@DarkBlood yes pretty much probably 4th maybe 3rd cause they have to introduce black suited spiderman first probably in TASM 3 if they go with a certain theory I have seen then have Venom then Carnage

Anthotis2831d ago

That sounds pretty good to me.

crimsonfox2831d ago (Edited 2831d ago )

It's not to bad. Carrey could play a psycho. But every time I think about Cletus Kasady on screen the only actor I would choose is Jackie Earle Haley. He's already got the psychopath look down once before as Rorschach. Just look, He wouldn't even need make up to play the part.

I really hope he isn't in this

I mean I hate the Amazing Spider-Man films, especially Andrew Garfield, to me he just isn't Peter Parker at all.

I would rather see Carnage and Venom used in a new trilogy, which would be more darker and feature an older Peter Parker.

adorie2831d ago (Edited 2831d ago )

If you hate the movies, then this shouldn't really bother you at all.

I still stand by what I said. You hope Carrey isn't in this because? I mean, is it because you don't want him to ruin the image of Carnage?

Cause that's the only reason I could see you even giving a remote F about this movie.

Mr_Pinky2831d ago

As I've said above I would rather see Carnage in another trilogy with an older Peter Parker

If you have carnage in this one then it diminishes the idea of having him in a trilogy in the future.

Deadpoolio2831d ago

He couldn't ruin Carnage anymore than Sam Raimi completely ruined Venom with that 70s Foreman Venom and My Chemical Parker dance numbers

-Superman-2831d ago

We saw Venom, and we saw that EVERYONE hated it.
They are going Sinister Six route.
He isnt Peter Parker? Yet TASM movie was closest to comics, while old spider-man movies was nothing like in comics. YOU ARE FREAK

Mr_Pinky2831d ago

because we've saw enough young, high school Peter Parker since the first Spiderman with Tobey Maguire

Sorry but Andrew can not pull off Peter Parker, I don't care how close to the comics they are, dosen't mean he's a good Spiderman

Oh and don't call someone a freak, don't need to throw insults around just to try and make your reply look big

RedHawkX2831d ago

no one gives a Sh*t or cares about the comics and even then garfield doesnt look like the comic book spidey. garfield just doesnt have the american look/ feel. Most people who know or seen spiderman seen him from the cartoons the really old ones and the the 90's cartoon that was on fox i think . not the futuristic ones. and the first trilogy felt like the cartoons and thats what everyone seen the most and thats how spiderman should be shown in the movies like in the cartoons because the comics dont translate well to video. you have to change stuff for it to work in live action. you dont just copy and paste.

GenericNameHere2831d ago

What's wrong with The Amazing Spider-Man? Garfield's not bad. He's whiny, but different writers in the comics have made Peter unbearable too. The reason people hate TASM is because it's a reboot. I don't think it was a masterpiece, but it was decent enough, and I can't wait for TASM2 (I wish they went with 616 Electro though, with the giant 5 electric bolt mask). The teenage Spidey route they went with was ok too. Not every movie has to be dark and philosophical (ex: the highly successful The Avengers).

ALTHOUGH, I do think Carnage should always be introduced around a mature story. Don't make him a wuss, make him KILL somebody. I think Garfield looks too wimpy for now, but who knows, maybe Carnage is saved for TASM4. When's that, 2018, 5 years from now? He could buff up, then maybe I could believe he can stand a chance against Carnage.

Genki2831d ago

After his comments about kick ass 2, not gonna happen. If Carrey signed on for this role, I'd expect nothing less than a watered down Carnage...who's supposed to be a violent, murderous psycho. No thanks. In all honesty, the symbiotes aren't even among Spider-Man's better villains; they're just popular because they look 'cool'

blackmanone2831d ago

Well said, everything I was going to cover you nailed it.

Whoa, whoa, whoa, you lost me on the symbiotes part. :). Carnage and Venom forever... you can have Toxin, though.

SilentNegotiator2831d ago (Edited 2831d ago )

He was chiming in with his Hollywood buddies because they thought Sandy Hook would be that wonderful opportunity to finally get that AR ban that they "lost"

If he's back snapping necks and slitting throats, he won't be whining on Twitter about his own character. He used the blanket "violence" complaint, but he's an outspoken anti-gun advocate and "after Sandy Hook" was the frame.
