The trailer for the long-awaited “Venom” sequel is finally here — and so is the new villain Carnage.
We also get a sneak peek at the red symbiote character from the comics, who was briefly introduced at the end of the first “Venom” film, released in 2018.
In the trailer, Cletus Kasady (Woody Harrelson), a crazed serial killer, survives a lethal injection in prison, which appears to awaken the symbiote inside of him and transforms him into Carnage. He and Tom Hardy, whose character Eddie Brock has made some peace with his alter-ego Venom, battle it out in a massive symbiote showdown.
“Venom: Let There Be Carnage” is set to release on Sept. 24, 2021. Originally scheduled for October 2020, the film has been delayed several times due to the COVID-19 pandemic, most recently getting pushed back one week from Sept. 17 to Sept. 24.
“Venom: Let There Be Carnage” also stars Michelle Williams as Anne Weying, Reid Scott as Dan Lewis and Naomie Harris as the symbiote Shriek.
