Four years after Marvel’s Venom earned as much as 865 million US dollars, its seemingly even more ambitious sequel is coming to cinemas this fall. So the wait is over, as Sony has just released the first trailer and poster for Venom: Let There Be Carnage or Venom 2 starting roughly where the first film ended. And while the scene of Venom clumsily preparing a sandwich for Eddie Brock will surely put a smile on your face, the infamous Carnage will be presented to us from the darkness.
It is an announcement of chaos and a great clash of antiheroes and villains that will mark the film. And although the first trailer actually primarily plays the card of presenting the long-awaited Carnage, it also teases the future of SPUMC, Sony’s cinematic universe with Marvel characters.
The film is directed by Andy Serkis (Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle, Breathe), and the screenplay is signed by Kelly Marcel (Cruella, Fifty Shades of Gray) based on a story by Marcel and Tom Hardy. Producers are Marcel, Hardy, Avi Arad, Matt Tolmach, Amy Pascal and Hutch Parker, while executive producers are Barry Waldman, Jonathan Cavendish and Ruben Fleischer.
Tom Hardy reprises his role as Eddie Brock aka Venom, as well as Michelle Williams as Anne Weying, while we will see Woody Harrelson as Cletus Kasady aka Carnage, Naomie Harris as Shriek or the love interest of Carnage, Reid Scott as Dan Lewis and Stephen Graham as Detective M.
While Marvel Studios’ Kevin Feige said that Spider-Man crossovers seem “likely at some point” to be the focus of Venom: Let There Be Carnage, producer Matt Tolmach said that Venom/Eddie remains the focus of the film.
Venom: Let There Be Carnage arrives in theaters on September 24, after being delayed several times due to a coronavirus pandemic.
