Around one minute and nine seconds into the trailer, we see Detective Mulligan (Stephen Graham) reading The Daily Bugle, which we know is run by Spider-Man’s J. Jonah Jameson. As Mulligan angrily closes the paper, you can see the briefest glimpse of a headline that reads something like “Avengers Lose to Nightmare.”
This is interesting for many reasons, beyond the exciting (apparent) mention of The Avengers. Not only has Nightmare been rumored as a possible player in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness but Doctor Strange himself has been confirmed to be making his way into Sony’s Spider-Man: No Way Home.
Venom 2’s trailer is packed with many more Easter Eggs, including an homage to Stan Lee, other nods to Spider-Man, a possible tease of Toxin, and much more. Check out all the Easter Eggs we found right here:

Sony also treated us to Venom: Let There Be Carnage’s first poster, which features a view of Venom wrapped in red tendrils – all from the view within Carnage’s mouth.
