The Moment In The Venom: Let There Be Carnage Trailer That Has Fans Buzzing

There were a lot of love stories in the realm of science fiction back in 2018. Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) and Hope Van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly) made it work in "Ant-Man and the Wasp," Hailee Steinfeld 100% caught feelings for a robot in "Bumblebee," and let's not forget the time-traveling lengths Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds) goes through to save Vanessa (Morena Baccarin) in "Deadpool 2."

But no 2018 love story can quite compare with the "What if '50 Shades of Grey' was a superhero franchise" scenario that is "Venom." Despite concerns that the film would be "a turd in the wind," "Venom" surprised audiences with a story so weird and so crude that it actually circled back around to become kind of heartwarming.

Not only did "Venom" offer a Venom who actually looks like the comic book version of the character, but it also gave longtime fans a relationship between Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy) and the Venom symbiote that's actually complex. In fact, the only thing that was missing in "Venom" is his nemesis — Spider-Man (Tom Holland).

Well, the trailer for "Venom: Let There Be Carnage" just dropped, and fans are cautiously optimistic that Peter Parker will actually appear this time around — but the reason for that hope shows up in the trailer so quickly and so briefly that you might have missed it.

The itsy bitsy spider you missed in the Venom trailer

Obviously, the main conflict for "Venom: Let There Be Carnage" will be between Eddie Brock and serial killer Cletus Kasady (Woody Harrelson), aka Carnage. Carnage has acted as both ally and nemesis over the years, and one of the enemies they often share is Spider-Man. And while, at this point, there's no indication we'll see Spidey wear the black, symbiote Venom suit like he did in the original comics (or in Sam Raimi's "Spider-Man 3") there is some indication that Peter Parker and Eddie Brock will cross paths in "Venom: Let There Be Carnage."

Throughout the trailer, we hear voice-over from Cletus Kasady. "You and I are the same," he says of Eddie Brock. "Every decision we ever make — who do we leave behind and how do we leave them? Waiting in the darkness for the rescuer who never comes." It's as Kasady closes this statement that we a hand squash a spider on some card stock with what appears to have red writing on it. The combination of the spider and the color of the font suggest that, yes, Spider-Man may at least appear in the Venom sequel.

Obviously, Tom Holland has been very busy with his own, third Spider-Man film which will likely feature the return of several previous Spider-Men and Spidey villains, but that doesn't make a cameo in "Venom: Let There Be Carnage" impossible. And this one, itsy bitsy spider might be our first clue that Venom will finally find his place in the larger MCU.

"Venom: Let There Be Carnage" is headed to theaters later this year.
