Monday was known as Spiderman Day; a day where fans celebrated Marvel’s famous webslinger. And, with the latest Spiderman film, ‘No Way Home’, due to be released this year, fans were hoping for a trailer. But they didn’t get their wish. Instead, Sony released a second trailer for the Venom sequel, titled ‘Venom: Let There Be Carnage’.
‘Venom: Let There Be Carnage’ sees Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy – Mad Max: Fury Road) and symbiote Venom learning to co-exist with each other. However, their somewhat peaceful life is interrupted when a new symbiote emerges: Carnage, who’s host is serial killer Cletus Kasady (Woody Harrelson – Zombieland)
Venom and Carnage are my favourite Marvel characters, and the 2018 film was one that I really enjoyed. It was reminiscent of the superhero movies from the early 2000’s and wasn’t ashamed of its tone, plus Tom Hardy is great as Eddie Brock/Venom. Therefore, it comes as no surprise that I cannot wait for the sequel. The film will mark the first-time fans will have a live action Carnage…and it looks fantastic and very comic book accurate.
And the casting for Cletus Kasady is perfect; I think Woody Harrelson will give a great performance; I just hope the film doesn’t show Cletus too much compared to Carnage’s screentime. With a character like this, I also hope the film is much darker and violent compared to its predecessor, as Carnage is a much more sinister character.
But, overall, ‘Venom: Let There Be Carnage’ looks fantastic. The casting for Carnage is perfect and the new symbiote itself looks fantastic. This is a film that I will definitely see in cinemas and, while this wasn’t the trailer that Spiderman fans were hoping for, I’m sure they won’t have too long to wait now. Hopefully.
