On Monday, a new preview of Venom: Let There Be Carnage dropped on the internet, with an action-packed trailer. While it’s less than three-minutes long, the trailer revealed quite a bit following its 2018 prequel Venom.
The official trailer was announced via Twitter, with the official Venom: Let There Be Carnage Twitter account posting, “You are what you eat. Feast on the new tailor for #Venom: Let There Be #Carnage, exclusive in movie theaters this fall.”
Directed by Andy Serkis (Lord of the Rings) and screenwriter Kelly Marcel, the Venom sequel is set for a September 24 theatrical release following its theatrical delay due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As expected, Tom Hardy will reprise his role as the comic book vigilante Eddie Brock, an ill-fated journalist adjusting his life to playing symbiotic host to an alien known as ‘Venom.’
Opposite to Hardy and Brock’s soon-to-be-enemy, is Woody Harrelson’s Cletus Kasady – an infamous serial killer who bites Brock, accidentally spawning another alien called ‘Carnage.’ Even Venom gets creeped out by Carnage’s barbed tendrils and razor-sharp teeth. The film also brings back Michelle Williams, who is set to return as Brock’s ex, with Naomie Harris making a quick cameo.
Bringing in the Venom sequel further begs the question of whether this film will fall within the purview of the Spider-Man cinematic universe will blend with the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Venom: Let There Be Carnage is directed by Andy Serkis, starring Tom Hardy, Michelle Williams, Naomi Harris, Reid Scott, Stephen Grahamand, and Woody Harrelson. It is produced by Avi Arad, Matt Tolmach, Amy Pascal, Kelly Marcel, Tom Hardy, and Hutche Parker. The film is not yet rated.
