Just wanted to share this bit of Spidey news that hit the internetz yesterday. The guys at the excellent YouTube channel SevenWebHeads reported that Jim Carrey might show up in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 in the role of Cletus Kasady. If you're not up to speed on your Spidey history, Kasady is a thoroughly despicable killer who becomes the super-villain known as Carnage. Of course, there's a detailed Wikipedia article on Kasady and Carnage.

If Carrey is in TASM2, it would probably just be a minor part of the movie, but it might be a set-up to a larger role in TASM3. Check out the video and let me know what you think.

  1. Jim Carrey does often come off as contradictory in his public persona, but after decrying KickAss 2, his own film, as too violent, I find it hard to believe he would play a serial killer known for eviscerating his victims into little pieces.

    1. Yeah I was thinking the same thing Nick. But - I think what bothered Carrey was the gun violence in KA2. Maybe he could rationalize playing Kasady as ok?
