Venom: Let There Be Carnage Early Fan Reactions Praise Sequel

The first fan reactions for Venom: Let There Be Carnage are in, and they're overwhelmingly positive. After 2018's Venom became a surprise hit, Sony pushed forward with its plans to develop its own Marvel universe. Last year was supposed to see the releases of Morbius and Venom 2, both of which would've furthered the expansion of this world. However, thanks to the coronavirus pandemic, the schedule has been switched around: Venom 2 will arrive first, and after several shifting release dates, it will debut in theaters in just two weeks.

Anticipation is high for this sequel. Tom Hardy returns as Eddie Brock, the journalist who becomes host to a symbiote with a hunger for flesh and chocolate. Directed by Andy Serkis, Venom: Let There Be Carnage picks up well over a year after the first movie and finds Eddie and Venom still adjusting to living together. Their progress is disrupted by the arrival of another, far more fearsome symbiote named Carnage, who quickly takes on serial killer Cletus Kasady (Woody Harrelson) as a host.

On Tuesday, September 14, a special "Fans First" screening of Venom: Let There Be Carnage was held in London. Fan reactions soon flooded social media, and they all speak highly of the Marvel sequel. Many have praised the absolute craziness of the film, while several others insist the credits are not to be missed. Check out some of the reactions below.

It's important to remember that these are fan reactions, not critical ones. The Venom: Let There Be Carnage reviews might paint a very different picture. However, with a movie like this one, critical consensus doesn't really matter. The first Venom hardly won over critics, earning a 30% on Rotten Tomatoes. The fans, meanwhile, adored it and spurred the movie to hit $856.1 million worldwide. It's always been clear that Venom: Let There Be Carnage would be for the fans, and it so far looks like they are very pleased with that Serkis has cooked up.

Hardy and Harrelson both received a lot of praise from fans, hinting Venom 2 will provide an excellent pair of leads. It's also been widely reported that people cannot miss the end-credits scene; based on the non-spoiler reactions, it sounds like it's both shocking and pleasing all at once. Some might be quick to assume this means there is some kind of reference to Spider-Man, or perhaps even a connection to the MCU (which is so far separate from Sony's universe). Until Venom: Let There Be Carnage arrives next month, fans can speculate to their hearts' content.
