Venom 2: 10 Delightful Trailer Details & What Fans Think They Mean

9. Venom Singing Show Tunes

Venom 2

Comic Venom likes to sing. Sometimes his songs are soft and silly, like in The Amazing Spider-Man #363 where Venom and Spider-Man have tentatively teamed-up and the symbiote is using the opportunity to belt out "Strangers in the Night," by Frank Sinatra to a less than impressed Spidey. On other occasions, his singing takes a grim turn. In Venom: The Hunger #4, the symbiote croons David Bowie's "Let's Dance," while enacting a bloody massacre.

Much to fans' excitement, the Venom 2 trailer features this show-tune-loving side of the symbiote. Venom sings "Let's Call the Whole Thing Off," while cooking breakfast. Only a snippet of the song is played, but it is an interesting choice of music and has fans wondering if it was picked for a reason.

One can understand why this song might speak to the symbiote especially with lyrics like, "So if I go for scallops and you go for lobsters, So all right no contest we'll order lobster," which would bring up memories of when the two had recently bonded and Eddie in a crazed hunger ate raw lobsters out of a fresh lobster tank at a fancy restaurant.

The chorus is the part that brings up questions of if there might be something deeper going on with this song choice. "But oh, if we call the whole thing off, then we must part. And oh, if we ever part, then that might break my heart." Will Eddie's and Venom's bond turn troubled? Will the two consider going their separate ways?
