‘Venom: Let There Be Carnage’ Clip: Woody Harrelson Undergoes A Horrific Transformation

Sony has come up with one of those totally arbitrary, made-up studio holidays to celebrate this week’s release of Venom: Let There Be Carnage. Today is apparently “Venom Day”, and while that supposed a bunch of symbiote-related stuff should be coming up, the first is a clip from the upcoming sequel.

The clip shows Woody Harrelson’s serial killer Cletus Kasady facing lethal injection, only for that to be the first time he transforms into Carnage. Bad news for everybody who showed up to watch a guy get executed!

As we’ve seen from earlier promos, there’s a moment when Cletus makes a snack out of Eddie Brock’s (Tom Hardy) finger. We can guess that he ingested some of the symbiote and that’s how Carnage entered his bloodstream. Or perhaps there’s more to it than that? We’ll find out when Venom: Let There Be Carnage opens on October 1st.
