Fans have certainly been eagerly waiting for the sequel to 2018’s Venom, titled ‘Venom: Let There Be Carnage.’ The first trailer for the film dropped on Monday and it showcased just how much of a threat Woody Harrelson’s Carnage will be in the film. Tom Hardy’s Venom will certainly have the hardest fight of his life against Carnage.
Now it seems more details regarding the film have been revealed by the film’s director. While speaking to IGN, director Andy Serkis broke down the latest trailer and also discussed the film’s connection to the Spider-Man mythology.
While Serkis makes note of the long-standing connections between Venom and Spider-Man from Marvel Comics, he stated that in the sequel, it will be different. The characters in the film are unaware of Spider-Man’s existence.
So it seems Eddie Brock and the rest of the characters will have no idea about the iconic web swinger. Despite that, the film will undoubtedly have a lot of easter eggs and homages to Spider-Man.
“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. So that’s the way we’ve chosen to play this particular episode of the movie but well we’ll wait and see what little things you can pick out of it.”
‘Venom: Let There Be Carnage’ is set to release on September 24, 2021. We will have to see whether it will surpass the original movie and meet the expectations of fans.
