Sony announced Sept. 27 as Venom Day to celebrate the Venom 2 release date on Oct. 1. Teasing something special, the Venom Twitter page revealed an exclusive clip of Carnage’s horrifying birth. The frightening villain looks to cause significant problems for Eddie Brock in Venom: Let There Be Carnage.
Carnage shreds through Venom Day
The Venom movie Twitter posted a cryptic announcement for Venom Day. Immediately, fans flew into theories of what could drop.
The answer came first thing this morning, as a new exclusive trailer appeared for Twitter and IGN.
In the clip, Woody Harrelson as Cletus Kasady lies strapped down. Sentenced to death by lethal injection, the drip begins, stopping in its tube by a mysterious red.
“We can see the symbiote proactively blocking the lethal injection drugs before painfully transforming Kasady into Carnage,” IGN notes.
Chaos erupts as Cletus undergoes a violent transformation. The Carnage symbiote bubbles over his skin.
Glass shatters, claws scarp, and finally, Carnage bursts forward, barring his razor-sharp teeth and tendrils.
“Not a fan of the red one escaping,” the post reads. It seems even Sony itself shakes in fear of Carnage.
Where does the Venom Day Carnage clip take place in the movie?
In Venom 2 trailers, Eddie Brock interviewed Cletus Kasady. During one, Cletus bites Eddie and shouts that he has “tasted blood before, and that is not blood.”
The Carnage symbiote likely entered Celtus’ system through this bite.
In the post-credits scene of 2018’s Venom, Cletus specifically requested Eddie to conduct his final interview. Based on this information, the interview and bite will most likely make up the first leg of the Venom movie.
The Venom Day clip appears to take place after this. Cletus’ horrifying transformation will mark the first turning point.
Carnage then incites a prison break, brutally tearing through guards and prisoners alike. However, one inmate manages to escape along with Harrelson’s Carnage.
Naomie Harris’ Shriek appeared in trailers as well, imprisoned in Ravencroft. Possessing a supersonic voice, she looks to cause havoc, too.
“It’s clear Tom Hardy’s anti-hero will have his work cut out for him this time. Fortunately for Eddie Brock, it appears Michelle Williams’ Anne Weying will suit up again as She-Venom in a film that will push its PG-13 rating to the ‘very limits,’” IGN reported.
Sony wants fans of both comics and movies to strap in for a wild ride with the warring symbiotes.
A whole day devoted to the alien symbiote
Sony and the Venom movie Twitter are just getting warmed up. Venom Day lasts all day, Sept. 27, to build even more excitement for Venom 2.
Some fans correctly predicted a sneak peek at the movie. Others tried guessing the Venom release moving for the rest of the world or word on new characters.
Some speculation even suggested Venom 3’s announcement.
As Venom Day continues, Sony undoubtedly has plenty more in store for movie fans.
Venom: Let There Be Carnage hits theaters on Oct. 1, 2021, in the US, Oct. 15 in the UK, and Nov. 25 in Australia.
