New “Venom: Let There Be Carnage” Teaser Highlights Worst Roommate in the World

A new Venom: Let There Be Carnage teaser pokes fun at the expense of everyone’s favorite alien symbiote and his human host, Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy). The spot is like a far messier and more dangerous version of those old videos of Thor (Chris Hemsworth) moving to Australia and rooming with a guy named Darryl. Our current roommate situation is between the San Francisco 49ers star tight end George Kittle and Eddie Brock, although this new spot uses some footage we’ve seen from the trailers of Venom absolutely trashing Eddie’s apartment, and intercuts Kittle’s bewildered commentary throughout. Okay, there is one shot at the end where they position Kittle on a couch and a piece of Venom’s arm, after the latter through the former’s TV out the window, but this is mostly about using a football star to tease the film with existing footage.

As we get closer to Venom: Let There Be Carnage‘s release date, we can expect a few more glimpses of director Andy Serkis’s film, which takes up where Ruben Fleischer’s 2018 original left off. Eddie Brock is trying to live with Venom in a more sustainable way (good luck with that), while a new villain awaits to tease out the very worst—which in this case will be the very best—of Brock’s alien symbiote friend. That would be Woody Harrelson’s Cleatus Kasady, who plays host to the bigger, badder alien symbiote Carnage. These two will be duking it out for top terror in San Francisco, but they won’t be alone. Michelle Williams is back as Anne Weying, who has been known to host an alien symbiote herself (She-Venom, of course), and newcomer Naomie Harris is on board as Frances Barrison, also known as Shriek.

And of course, now that Sony has officially rebranded from Sony Pictures Universe of Marvel Characters to Sony’s Spider-Man Universe, there are all sorts of hopeful speculation about that eventual crossover between Spidey and Venom. We think it’ll happen, eventually, but long before that, we’ve got Venom: Let There Be Carnage hitting theaters on October 1.

Check out the new spot below.
