Marvel’s one of the most intriguing anti-heroes in MCU is Venom. Ever since its first trailer was released, fans’ excitement is at its top. And why shouldn’t it be? With its second trailer out, the fire will not be going out anytime soon. That being said, the trailer has also led us to newer details and insights into the film. So now that the movie will soon be here, we thought to take you through what we know about the famous anti-hero so far.
The Trailer for Venom: Let There Be Carnage
The trailer of the sequel gave us a glimpse of Daily Bugle, the famous Newspaper agency. In Venom (2018), we saw Eddie Brock losing his job and also his wife, Anna Weying. The trailer also shows Eddie adjusting to his new life with the symbiote and comes across a murderer, Cletus Kasady. Kasady is the host to his own parasite, Carnage, and he also wants Eddie to interview him to tell his story to the world.
Daily Bugle, owned by the famous J. Jonah Jameson, is a significant aspect of Spider-Man and Venom’s lives. After its brief appearance in the trailer and also Sam Raimi in the post-credit scene of Spider-Man: Far From Home, it seems like they are, after all, in the same universe, doesn’t it?
Venom’s Connection With MCU Multiverse
Marvel hasn’t revealed if Venom is part of the same universe in MCU, but there’s no harm in speculating, right? Fans have been thinking about this a lot too. But there are a few Easter eggs that can help us theorize. Sony’s Morbius talks about Spider-Man and says that he’s a murderer. This shows that there is a connection between Morbius’s statement and Spider-Man: Far From Home, where Mysterio also does the same and later reveals his true identity. Even though these Easter Eggs might highlight the interconnection between the two, it still doesn’t confirm that they are in the same universe. However, we might see Sony introducing Spider-Man and Venom as arch enemies.
The Cast of Venom: Let There Be Carnage
Tom Hardy will be reappearing as Eddie Brock and Woody Harrelson as Cletus Kasady. We last saw him give a brief appearance in Venom’s post-credit scene. Michelle Williams will also be returning as Eddie’s love interest, Anne Weying. In addition, we will see Naomie Harris play Shriek and also J.K. Simmons as J. Jonah Jameson.
The movie will be released in the UK on September 15th, 2021. While the trailer was satisfyingly humorous yet brutal, fans have high expectations from the film too. Are you excited? I know, I am. Tell us in the comments.
