The terrifying scene occurred after Cletus took a chomp out of Eddie Brock’s hand in Venom trailers. Likely how he obtained the Carnage symbiote, it stops the criminal’s lethal injection, inciting a prison break.
And it looks to be a brutal affair. Tearing through guards and breaking Naomie Harris’ Shriek, the clip showed just how frightening of a presence Carnage has.
Around noon, new posts hit the Twitter account, unveiling a special new Venom Snapchat filter.
A surprising unveiling of the Venom Snapchat filter
Something was amiss. Fantasy updates and Marvel podcast announcements suddenly became interrupted as Venom overtook hosts.

While the promotional videos only featured people turning into Venom with the ‘Venom Vs. Carnage Lens.’ However, users also have the option to transform into Carnage.
A similar campaign took place in 2018 for the first Venom movie, giving users’ Venom Eyes,’ big, crackling, and white.
Another shocking celebration for Venom Day
In addition to the Venom Snapchat filter and the Carnage clip, Venom Day celebrated with some “biting” comments.
“Eddie says no eating people today, but roasting is allowed. If you can handle a bite from me, comment,” the Twitter account said, beckoning brave souls.
While several fans and news sites speculated on what Venom Day could bring, no one expected an invitation for Venom himself to roast audiences.
The post went up just 10 minutes before 1 pm EST and garnered hundreds of comments in a few hours. Venom fans really want roasted by the alien symbiote.
However, fans looking for the Venom Snapchat filter can find it as the top pinned post. The filter includes a convenient switch on the side depending on if you desire to become Venom or Carnage.
