Venom: Let There Be Carnage has arrived with its first trailer that dropped Monday — and the preview is intense with some movements of levity.
About three minutes long, the first look at the Sony-Marvel film showcases Eddie Brock’s (Tom Hardy) life with Venom and how they have something of a Seymour-Audrey II Little Shop of Horrors-thing going.
But the trailer takes a dark turn when Cletus Kasady, aka Carnage (Woody Harrelson) enters the picture (with a much better wig from his cameo in the 2018 original film.)
Viewers witness Kasady become Carnage in the midst of being executed in prison for his horrendous crimes.
Directed by Andy Serkis, the Columbia Pictures film (in association with Marvel and Tencent Pictures) also stars Michelle Williams, Reid Scott and Naomie Harris. The film is produced by Avi Arad, Matt Tolmach, Amy Pascal and Hutch Parker.
