The much-anticipated follow up to 2018’s Venom is one step closer to hitting theater screens with the release of a brand new trailer.
Entitled Venom: Let There Be Carnage, the sequel replaces director Rueben Fleischer with mo-cap marvel Andy Serkis behind the camera, and will release theatrically on September 24, 2021.
This time around, journalist Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy) and his alien parasite pal Venom will be facing off against one of the Spider-Man comics’ most deadly villains – the titular Carnage. Serkis’ film seems to be sticking pretty closely to the comic-book Carnage, with Woody Harrelson portraying the psychotic serial killer Cletus Kasady who becomes embued with the power of the same symbiote species as Venom.
Let There Be Carnage also stars Stephen Graham, Naomie Harris and Michelle Williams, who reprises her role from the previous instalment.
Plot details are fairly non-specific so far, but the trailer sets up some shared background between Brock and Kasady – which will no doubt make for big problems when Kasady eventually escapes prison in crimson, many-toothed form.
Check out the trailer below, and let us know whether you think this will be a step in the right direction after the critical reception to the first Venom film!
