The Venom 3 Trailer Makes Marvel’s Multiverse Even More Confusing – SlashFilm


Okay, now they’re just messing with everyone, right? The trailer footage is pretty straightforward from here on out, delivering all sorts of goofy visuals like Venom consuming a horse or dancing with the returning Mrs. Chen (Peggy Lu) in what looks like a Las Vegas casino. But there’s one brief moment that arrives with zero explanation whatsoever: Eddie (who is decked out in the exact same Hawaiian shirt that he wears in the “Spider-Man: No Way Home” scene) hitching a ride with some hippies in a grungy van. But who can fans glimpse serenading the protagonist with his guitar? That would be a very grungy figure played by Rhys Ifans.

Ifans, of course, made his first appearance in the superhero world after portraying Curt Connors/The Lizard in 2012’s “The Amazing Spider-Man.” He was among the many villains brought back for “Spider-Man: No Way Home” in the crossover extravaganza, in which he was cured of his reptilian affliction and sent back to his normal universe — or so we thought. The oddly prominent shot of Ifans in the trailer implies he’s reprising his role as Connors, rather than playing a different character altogether. (Potentially pulling that stunt once with Chiwetel Ejiofor is one thing, but doing so again with Rhys Ifans? Not to go full conspiracy theorist, but that’d be a pretty big coincidence.)

So after Doctor Strange casts his final spell and causes the world to forget Spider-Man, does the now-reformed Connors accidentally end up in the “Venom”-verse instead of his own? Does he play an unexpectedly large role in tying both franchises together through the multiverse? Will the movie ultimately avoid resolving any of these concerns? Find out when “Venom: The Last Dance” hits theaters on October 25, 2024.
