The Venom sequel is called Let There Be Carnage, but they might as well have called it Let There Be Spider-Man 2 But With Venom This Time. Both films feature a superhero who is at war with his own superhero identity, and longs to abandon his life as a crimefighter so he can normal again. They also both feature villains that have a personal connection to the hero, who are transformed by a freak accident into a horrific monster. The villain is motivated by their lost love and for a while the hero gives up their costumed identity. And on and on and on.

The connections between Venom 2 and Spider-Man 2 are just one of the many Easter eggs, hidden references, and little things you might have missed in Let There Be Carnage. In our latest Venom video, we break them all down in painstaking detail. Those includes the name of Venom’s tire swing chew toy, the chemical that’s supposedly found in brains and chocolate, and the way that Carnage inverts Spider-Man’s origin. (Instead of getting bitten by a spider, Cletus Kasady actually eats a spider. Gross.) Watch them all below:
