VENOM: LET THERE BE CARNAGE Clip Reveals Cletus Kasady's Violent Transformation Into Carnage
Today is "Venom Day," and Sony Pictures has kicked things off with a brand new clip from Venom: Let There Be Carnage showing the moment Cletus Kasady undergoes his monstrous transformation into Carnage.
With Venom: Let There Be Carnage set to arrive in theaters on Thursday evening, Sony Pictures has kicked the week off with what they're calling "Venom Day." We're not entirely sure what's to come, but we're starting with a new clip highlighting the moment Cletus Kasady becomes Carnage.
Set to be executed for the many people he's killed, Cletus starts undergoing a monstrous transformation when the poison meant to end his life starts coursing through his bloodstream.
With that, Carnage is born and it spells doom for everyone in the immediate vicinity! We know from previous promos that Cletus bites Eddie Brock's finger and winds up with a piece of the Venom symbiote, so this moment is obviously a result of that action. This is a departure from the comic books, of course, but not one significant enough to upset even the biggest of Carnage fans.
There's a huge amount of excitement surrounding the introduction of Carnage, especially after Riot so massively underwhelmed in 2018's Venom. Hopefully, even with that PG-13 rating, we'll get to see this iteration of the villain - who is making his live-action debut - really let loose in the sequel.
Check out the new clip from Venom: Let There Be Carnage in the player below:
