Even though I thought last year’s Venom movie left a lot to be desired, I’d definitely see a sequel. Much like how excitement surrounded seeing Eddie Brock’s first solo outing on the big screen, so, too, will there likely be a lot of hype surrounding a full-on Carnage in the followup.
If you saw the Sony-Marvel blockbuster, then you’re aware of how Woody Harrelson laid the groundwork for the next flick by showing up during the mid-credits scene. Granted, he was there as Cletus Kasady only, but said teaser was enough to get True Believers pumped.
So, now that we know Harrelson will unleash havoc as Carnage next time around, some fans aren’t wasting time showing us what the future may hold. Already, there’s been fantastic art imagining what the iconic villain may look like on celluloid, and now Billy Crammer has put together an incredibly impressive trailer (seen at the top) that allows us to peek into the crystal ball more effectively.

If you were to ask me, Crammer sets the stage quite perfectly by touching on Kasady’s background as a serial killer before going into the more fantastical stuff. To make it all work, footage from the first movie featuring Tom Hardy as Brock is included, though it’s tweaked to fit the new narrative.
What’s also worth mentioning is that Tom Holland’s Spider-Man shows up for good measure, even if his inclusion may be a pipe dream at the point. I also couldn’t help noticing Tony Stark in there as well, but I’d be very, very surprised to see Robert Downey Jr. appearing in any Marvel movie following Avengers: Endgame.
Right now, Venom 2 lacks a confirmed release date, but it’d be wise to mark your calendars for October of 2020 until we learn more.
