The new trailer for Venom 2 was released yesterday and it created quite the stir.
We posted our reaction and first thoughts video about it yesterday, which you can watch right here.
I have to hand it to Mikey Sutton over at Geekosity, he spotted something I didn’t when he watched the trailer.
In the trailer, Stephen Graham’s character, Detective Mulligan is reading a Daily Bugle newspaper has the headline: “Avengers Lose to Nightmare.”
So, who is Nightmare? He’s typically a Doctor Strange villain, which is why we said that Doctor Strange is referenced in Venom 2’s trailer.
Venom 2’s trailer references Doctor Strange and The Avengers
Nightmare is rumoured to be the main villain in the upcoming MCU movie, Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness.
We’ll have to wait and see what happens.
However, as I mentioned earlier, this doesn’t mean that the movie is going to be really set in the MCU.
Venom 2’s director put that fire out pretty quickly in a recent interview:
We’re treating this very much as it’s his own world. The Venom story is his own world,
There are nods and little moments [like the shot of the newspaper the Daily Bugle], of course, but on the whole he’s unaware. They are unaware, at this point, of other characters like Spider-Man. So, that’s the way we’ve chosen to play this particular episode of the movie, but, well, we’ll wait and see.
