Tom Hardy Returns as Venom in “Venom: Let There Be Carnage”

Sony has released the poster and trailer of “Venom: Let There Be Carnage” offering a first look at the follow-up of the 2018 blockbuster anti-hero superhero film, Venom.

In the trailer, Eddie Brock and Venom have settled into a kind of normal routine, with the symbiote cooking him breakfast and the both of them visiting the bodega run by Mrs. Chen (Peggy Lu). The sequel pits Venom against Carnage, played by Woody Harrelson. The actor was first introduced as the flame-haired villain in the post-credits sequence of the 2018 film.

Though Ruben Fleischer directed Venom, Andy Serkis was recruited to helm Venom: Let There Be Carnage, with Kelly Marcel taking over sole scripting duties after co-writing the first film with Jeff Pinkner and Scott Rosenberg.

Initially planned for an October 2020 release, the Venom: Let There Be Carnage release date was delayed a year to 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It’s currently slated to hit theaters on Sept. 24, 2021.
