Venom 2 Trailer: Venom Hinted Its Crossover With MCU’s Avengers
Venom: Let There Be Carnage trailer has been dropped and fans are going gaga over it. The trailer seems very appropriate with its comic book origin and the VFX team has done a fantabulous job keeping the terror in the Carnage design.
While fans keep praising the stunning VFX of Venom 2, a particular scene from the trailer has given hope to many MCU fans to praise the Venom movie even more. It hinted at the venom crossover with other marvel movies with Avengers news.
While Venom: Let There Be Carnage may not take place in the MCU, its first trailer features an Easter egg that appears to reference The Avengers.
Around one minute and nine seconds into the trailer, we see Detective Mulligan (Stephen Graham) reading The Daily Bugle, which we know is run by Spider-Man’s J. Jonah Jameson. As Mulligan angrily closes the paper, you can see the briefest glimpse of a headline that reads something like “Avengers Lose to Nightmare.”
This is interesting for many reasons, beyond the exciting (apparent) mention of The Avengers. Not only has Nightmare been rumored as a possible player in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness but Doctor Strange himself has been confirmed to be making his way into Sony’s Spider-Man: No Way Home.
Venom 2 First Official Poster

Sony also treated us to Venom: Let There Be Carnage’s first poster, which features a view of Venom wrapped in red tendrils – all from the view within Carnage’s mouth.
Venom: Let There Be Carnage Easter Eggs
Here are all the Easter eggs and comic book references we’ve caught in Venom: Let There Be Carnage.
1. Stan Lee: As Eddie walks into Mrs. Chen’s convenience store, we see a magazine cover featuring the legendary Stan Lee on it. Another angle appears to say “Amazing,” which may be a nod to a Marvel-style comic.
2. Spider: In prison, Cletus is seen squashing a spider while writing a postcard, which is a not-so-subtle nod to Spider-Man. We later see Eddie Brock holding a similar postcard during the breakfast scene that very well may be from Cletus who is currently on death row. Cletus has forged a relationship with Eddie, who is helping the police locate some of Cletus’s victims.
3. Cletus’ New Look: The Cletus Kasady we see in this trailer for Venom: Let There Be Carnage has a different haircut than he had when we were first introduced to him in the end credits of Venom.
4. The Daily Bugle: Both Mulligan and Eddie are seen reading the Daily Bugle in the trailer, which is the most overt nod to the Spider-Man comics to date. However, it is worth noting that Eddie is based in San Francisco and not New York City. That said, he very well may find his way to New York City in the film, especially if Ravencroft is still located in New York.
5. Shriek: While Carnage is the main villain, Venom: Let There Be Carnage will also introduce us to Naomie Harris’ Francis Barriston, who is also known as Shriek. In the comics, Shriek is both a partner and lover to Carnage. While director Andy Serkis isn’t revealing if their story in the film will lead to a romance, he did reveal that she will tie in to the movie’s emphasis on troubles characters with abusive parents.
6. Ravencroft: The Ravencroft that is shown in the trailer is pulled right from the comics as Ravencroft Institute for the Criminally Insane was a large sanatorium in Westchester County, New York. It made its first appearance in Spectacular Spider-Man #178 in 1991 and even was featured in Amazing Spider-Man 2. Later in the comics, it was one of the leading maximum-security facilities that focused on treating superhuman criminals.
7. Knull and Cult of Carnage: The symbols all over Cletus’s cell and the very religious shot of Carnage at the end of the trailer framed against a stained glass window like those seen in churches is very much a nod to the comics’ Cult of Knull and Cult of Carnage. The stained glass shot is also reminiscent of the cover for Web of Venom: Cult of Carnage. Furthermore, there are ties between Knull and Ravencroft in the comics.
8. The logo for Venom: Let There Be Carnage features stylized text inspired by the comics that came before it.
