At around 9 AM ET this morning, Sony released the first trailer for their upcoming film Venom: Let There Be Carnage. The two-and-a-half-minute trailer gave us our very first look at the psychopath villain known as Carnage. Played by Woody Harrelson, the famous red symbiote foe was first introduced on the big screen during the mid-credits of 2018’s Venom.
After the trailer was released, the film’s director Andy Serkis, broke it down in his own separate video. One of the biggest things he revealed, is that Eddie Brock (AKA Venom), is unaware that Spider-Man exists.
“Obviously, there are links between Venom and Spider-Man in the Marvel Universe and the Spider-Man story, but in this, we’re treating this very much as it’s his own world, the Venom story is his own world,” Serkis says. “There are nods and little moments just like this, the newspaper Daily Bugle, of course, but on the whole, he’s unaware, they’re unaware, at this point of other characters like Spider-Man.”
The question fans want to know is will it still be this way by the end of the film? Venom: Let There Be Carnage hits theaters later this year on September 24th.
