Finally, after three long years and several delays, Venom: Let There Be Carnage is heading to theaters. Sony Pictures Entertainment’s premiered the first trailer on Monday. This is the sequel to the 2018 superhero hit Venom starring Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock, journalist turned dark superhero trying his best to keep the beast in the cage.

Andy Serkis is directing Venom: Let There Be Carnage instead of Ruben Fleischer. And the IMDB cast list reveals that some of our favorite characters returned such as Anne Weying (Michelle Williams ) and Dr. Dan Lewis (Reid Scott). Woody Harrelson reprises his role as deranged serial killer with his own symbiote, Cletus Kasady/Carnage. Thankfully, Kasady’s red and curly abomination of a wig in the last film did not appear in this trailer.

The trailer features the relationship between Venom and Eddie Brock which was the intent producer Matt Tolmach, told Cinemablend.com. This evident with scenes of Venom trying (and failing) to make breakfast for Eddie, chatting with Mrs. Chen (Peggy Lu) at the store, and even complaining to her about a delayed shipment of chocolate (which is Venom’s favorite). However, we could see the relationship between Kasady/Carnage and Eddie/Venom be heavily featured too. Carnage “spawned” from Venom in the comics, so Eddie might be like a parental figure to him. This explains why Kasady was writing and narrating a creepy “I miss you” letter to Eddie throughout the trailer.

We’re excited about this new installment in the series and look forward to any future trailers from Sony. Venom: Let There Be Carnage premieres September 24th in the US. You can watch the trailer below:
