The sometimes elusive Eminem appeared to make a monster announcement on Thursday (August 30).

The Hip Hop giant shared a video to his Instagram account teasing his involvement in the upcoming Sony film, Venom, which is based on the Marvel Comics character.

The caption reads simply, “@venommovie.”



In the clip, the “E” in Venom turns into a red, backwards “E,” Em’s signature logo. It closes with Em rapping, “Knock, knock/Let the devil in.”

The movie, which will likely be a box office behemoth, stars Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock, a journalist who’s able to morph into Venom. In a recent interview with Esquire, Hardy revealed his character was partly inspired by — of all people — Redman.



“Woody Allen’s tortured neurosis and all the humor that can come from that,” Hardy said. “Conor McGregor — the über violence but not all the talking. And Redman out of control, living rent-free in his head.”

Venom is expected to hit theaters nationwide on October 5.
