Tom Hardy returns as Eddie Brock in Venom: Let There Be Carnage, a sequel to 2018’s Marvel’s Spider-Man universe-set Venom.

This one’s been directed by Andy Serkis, and Sony’s being a bit secretive about plot, simply tagging the first trailer – which you can watch below – with “Tom Hardy returns to the big screen as the lethal protector Venom, one of Marvel’s greatest and most complex characters.” Well duh!

It’s been known – and the trailer backs it up – that the big bad is Woody Harrelson’s Cletus Kasady/Carnage, and we also get a glimpse of Naomie Harris as Shriek.

Venom: Let There Be Carnage will be sinking its teeth into Australian cinemas from September 16. Here’s that trailer:
