Andy Serkis takes over directing the sequel, which hits theaters this fall.
"I've been thinking about you, Eddie," Woody Harrelson's Cletus Kasady monologues in the first trailer for Venom: Let There Be Carnage. The comic book serial killer was first introduced in the post-credits scene of 2018's Venom, when Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy) visited him in prison for an interview. As he tells Eddie now, "You and I are the same."
See, Cletus is inflicted with an alien symbiote of his own -- the titular Carnage -- though they're less interested in the parasitic odd couple routine Eddie and Venom have going and mostly just wants to cause chaos. As teased in the trailer, a lethal injection gone wrong is what appears to let Carnage loose. And he won't be alone, as Let There Be Carnage introduces the villainess Shriek (Naomie Harris), too.
Venom: Let There Be Carnage is in theaters Sept. 24.
