Andy Serkis Is Congratulating PlayStation Players for Earning a Platinum Trophy... But No One Knows Which One

A new unlisted video on PlayStation Europe's YouTube account sees Venom: Let There Be Carnage's director Andy Serkis congratulating players for earning a Platinum Trophy for... something?

This YouTube video (watch it here!), which was first posted on October 7, was spotted by AuthenticM on ResetERA and looks to be some sort of tie-in with Venom: Let There Be Carnage. However, there is no game based on the sequel to 2018's Venom and the video only features footage from the film and mentions no PlayStation game.

"Hi there, It's Andy Serkis, director of Venom: Let There Be Carnage," Serkis says. "Congratulations on earning your Platinum Trophy. That's quite an achievement. Well done."

It's important to note that Sony distributed Venom: Let There Be Carnage, so having some connection to the PlayStation 5 would make sense, it's just unclear what this could be for.

For those unaware, a Platinum Trophy is the final trophy to earn when going through a game's list of challenges. Achieving this trophy means you've essentially completed all the challenges the developers have intended you to conquer.

We know that Venom will be a part of Marvel's Spider-Man 2, but that game isn't due to arrive until 2023. Could it be something for Marvel's Spider-Man or Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales? As of this writing, it's anybody's guess.

Venom: Let There Be Carnage was released in theaters on October 1, 2021. In our review, we said, "Venom: Let There Be Carnage improves on everything from the first movie, leaning into its own absurdity. While it plays it a little safe, it still points the series in an exciting direction."
