Giving new meaning to the phrase “You are what you eat,” Venom 2’s new trailer provides a widely anticipated glimpse at evil symbiote Carnage’s origin story.

After delaying its original release date last October due to COVID-19, Venom: Let There Be Carnage is finally prepping to hit theaters on September 24, 2021, with the release of its second movie trailer. Andy Serkis takes over for Ruben Fleischer as director after heavy criticism levied at Fleischer regarding myriad plot and tone failures.

2018’s Venom concluded with a rocky understanding settled upon between investigative journalist Eddie Brock and titular symbiote Venom that Venom could continue to eat people –– as long as they were “bad guys.” Years later, Brock, who is played by Tom Hardy, is tired of hunting people for Venom and struggles to keep his symbiote’s homicidal appetite at bay.  

Featuring Michelle Williams once again as Anne Weying, Eddie’s ex-fiancée who viewers discover has now become engaged again to beau Dan Lewis, Venom: Let There Be Carnage gives a new backstory to Carnage that many claim is stronger.

During an interview with serial killer Cletus Kasady, acted by Woody Harrelson, Kasady bites Brock’s hand, tasting blood and ingesting enough DNA to become a host for a symbiote himself. Thus is born Carnage.

In original comics, Brock was incarcerated alongside Kasady as his cellmate. After Venom essentially gives birth to Carnage, Kasady and Carnage bond. Venom 2 leaves behind this storyline entirely, as well as the original linked plotlines of Spider-Man and Venom, to create the ultimate anti-hero and the ultimate villain.

Venom: Let There Be Carnage trailer holds viewers in suspense with its gory yet impressively artful depiction of personal and heroic battle, both in an internal and an external landscape. Alongside Hardy, Harrelson, and Williams are co-stars Reid Scott, Stephen Graham, Peggy Lu and Naomie Harris, of whom we get our first glimpse of as Shriek.

Fans are bubbling with excitement at this latest release, especially over Venom’s character as a reluctantly endearing and ultimately hilarious anti-hero. The trailer teases several scenes of brilliant banter featuring Venom’s cannibalistic cravings and Brock’s it’s-not-you-it’s-me quips.

Carnage’s form leaves even unmatched Venom scared witless, setting up Marvel’s favorite blend of comedy, action, and impossible victory. Carnage boasts a dozen knife-sharp tentacle appendages and takes the color red –– a notoriously dangerous variation of symbiote.

Catch the movie in all its glory and carnage as it hits theaters this fall.
