Venom: Let There Be Carnage has just got its first trailer. The upcoming movie is a sequel to the 2018 film Venom, starring Tom Hardy. This next film seems to follow the adventures of Venom and his host Eddie Brock as they navigate their lives as one being, and encounter furious foe Carnage who will be played by Woody Harrelson.
Additionally, the trailer gives us a first look at Shriek, another superpowered individual, who is played by Naomie Harris - and it seems she'll be central to the conflict between Venom and Carnage as the film plays out. Though 2018's Venom wasn't a critical success, the continued popularity of Marvel properties seems to have spurred a second attempt at bringing the character to life. Let's hope this next instalment in the series isn't also like, oh what was it, a turd in the wind?
You can see the trailer below which shows just a portion of the absolute chaos we can expect from Venom and Carnage clashing:
Carnage and Cletus Kasady made their first appearances in the original Venom film in a post-credits scene. The serial killer promises that once he escapes from prison that he will unleash carnage - which I guess is a pun now I think about it - so we've known the villain was on the way for a while. Traditionally in the comic books, it's taken Venom and Spider-Man working together to take the monster down, so some fans seem to hope that we'll be seeing a superhero cameo in the film. Perhaps some sort of man-sized spider, or a spider-sized man. Somebody get Tom Holland on the phone. Of course, no promises have been made by the trailer (though there is a Daily Bugle easter egg) but we're still looking forward to what the movie will contain.
So when can we expect to see Venom: Let There Be Carnage? With the current state of lockdowns ending soon it seems that the film will be out in cinemas and theatres later this year. September 24, 2021, is the set release date, so if you haven't watched the original Venom film yet, you might want to get on that sooner rather than later.
