Movie Nooz Bitez: Woody Harrelson Gambled on Venom 2, Plus Set Photos from The Batman and Mission Impossible 7

Venom 2: Let There Be Carnage

Having Woody Harrelson show up in the tag scene at the end of Ruben Fleischer‘s Venom thrilled astute fans who recognized his shock of unruly red hair and use of the word “carnage” signified that symbiote-powered serial killer Cletus Kasay, aka Carnage, was coming!

Harrelson revealed in a recent interview with Empire (via WinterIsComing) that he so trusted his Zombieland director that he took the job without even seeing a script.

I really believed in [Fleischer]. I never did anything that where I hadn’t seen a script. Just rolling the dice. I hoped everything would work out. Even though Ruben didn’t direct, my good buddy Andy Serkis directed and made me feel so comfortable. It’s really cool that he came on.

Harrelson wouldn’t elaborate further on the movie or his role, but added, “I’m happy I got to do it.” Harrelson joins Tom Hardy, Michelle Williams and Reid Scott.

The Batman

We got just the briefest of glimpses of Colin Farrell as Oswald Cobblepot, aka The Penguin, in the trailer for writer-director Matt Reeves‘ The Batman but many on social media claimed they didn’t see him at all. That’s because the makeup they used to transform him into the aquatic foul-themed villain is so good that he is almost unrecognizable. Reeves didn’t quite go as far as Tim Burton’s take on The Penguin, but this new set photo shows just how far he did go to bring the DC Comics villain to life in a more realistic setting.

The photo also gives us another look at title star Robert Pattinson as Bruce Wayne and a grieving Zoë Kravitz as Selina Kyle, aka Catwoman. Her outfit was so striking that Vogue even covered it in a recent article.

Mission: Impossible 7

Despite numerous halts in production due to controversies and coronavirus, the latest installment of the adventures of Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) and his Impossible Mission Force is rolling once again, this time in Rome, Italy, under the direction of Christopher McQuarrie, who also wrote the film. New set photos showed Cruise and co-star Hayley Atwell involved in a chase involving cars and a motorcycle and a new set video shows Cruise fighting bad guys after a car crash.
