Unless you live on the far corners of the Galapagos' Islands or maybe just under a rock, then I am sure the Kulture Popped readers are well aware of the Venom 2 trailer that was unleashed upon us all this past week. Now, I have seen countless posts and articles discussing, highlighting and even breaking down the trailer frame by frame but the one thing I have yet to see ANYONE discuss is by far my most favorite not to mention most heart-warming Easter Egg of all.
Axel Foley Detroit Lions jacket aside, take a look at the screen grab below....
Do you see it? NO? TAKE A SECOND LOOK.
DO YOU SEE IT?!?!?!?!
STAN FREAKIN LEE.
What does this mean? MCU infiltration confirmed? Fan Service? Total plutonic revers...wait, wrong movie. Sorry. This is something that just feels HUGE with such a subtle nod and I shrieked at the top of my lungs when I saw it.
Yes, we finally see Carnage on-screen. Yes, they kept Woody Harrelson. Thank goodness.
Thank you to the filmmakers for finding a way to keep the tradition alive, you have warmed my heart and made my day.
That is all.
Bask in the glory that is Stan the man Lee everyone.
Hopefully this makes you smile as much as it did me.
Here's the full trailer video for your review.
