Why The Sneak Peek At Venom: Let There Be Carnage Has Fans Divided

"Venom: Let There Be Carnage" is almost in theaters, and Sony is trying to ramp up as much excitement as possible among Marvel fans — even releasing a lengthy new clip from the comic book movie. Eddie Brock/Venom (Tom Hardy) goes head-to-head with serial killer Cletus Kasady (Woody Harrelson) when the latter manages to get his hands on an extraterrestrial symbiote of his own just before his execution date. How convenient. Many are excited to see "Let There Be Carnage" since the first film holds an 80% audience rating on Rotten Tomatoes, although it also has a 30% critic rating — yikes.

Most fans are excited to see Carnage unleash his reign of terror on San Francisco and just how violent things might get. Although he's typically a Spider-Man villain in the comics, this doesn't stop the killer from being truly brutal at times. The most recent trailer gave audiences a brief glimpse at the chaos to come, with Carnage breaking out of prison and working with Shriek (Naomie Harris) to cause trouble for Eddie and his symbiote side-kick.

The new sneak peek at the sequel has some fans worried about Sony's latest symbiote.

Some fans wanted more blood and gore

Sony debuted the new footage through the PlayStation Facebook account, which shows how Cletus escapes his execution. The Carnage symbiote pushes back the chemicals being injected into the killer's body — before taking over completely and bursting out of the cell. The 3 minutes and 55-seconds-long clip gives fans their best look at what else Carnage is capable of, including a bizarre move where he spins himself around to create a devastating whirlwind. Unfortunately, many fans took to the comments in the Facebook post to voice their complaints about the film's lack of blood.

Remus Stingaciu says, "Cletus Kasady is a bloodthirsty serial killer, now fused with a blood thirsty alien, yet he just kinda throws dudes around." He also added, "This really needed an R rating." David Ciornei echoed the point, saying, "I wanted more gore and dismemberment rather than just tossing the guys around like dolls with no blood but I'll watch it anyway for the action..." Facebook user Christopher Rosencrans joked about Sony's priorities for the sequel, saying, "Should we make it rated R and give the fans what they want or make Carnage do spin attacks like Crash Bandicoot?"

On the opposite end of things, Louis Howard Evans was surprised by the new footage, commenting, "after watching this clip.. I'm so hyped!!" While Gabriel Miller wrote, "Can't wait to see it [this] weekend." Clearly the fans are pretty divided over "Let There Be Carnage." It's worth remembering that it could still be rather disturbing without spilling too much blood, as Carnage shoves his tongue down a corrections officer's throat after all. Gross.
