Ever since it first dropped online in February, the debut trailer for the live-action Venom movie was a point of contention among viewers, who were upset that it didn't contain any footage of the actual symbiote. A fan-made trailer soon rectified the situation, and the second trailer certainly gave us some bona fide Venom moments to chew on, particularly at the end with the "We are Venom" line.

But that wasn't the end of things, as YouTube channel Darth Blender decided to sync up the second trailer with clips from the 1990s Spider-Man cartoon. Running for a total of 65 episodes between 1994 and 1998 on Fox Kids, the series starred Hank Azaria (The Simpsons) as Eddie Brock/Venom. The cast also included the likes of Ed Asner (Elf, Up) as J. Jonah Jameson and Mark Hamill as Jason Macendale/Hobgoblin.

Venom is the second Marvel movie in recent months to receive the Saturday morning treatment from Darth Blender. Last December, the channel used vintage clips from Marvel cartoons along with the audio from the Infinity War trailer.

Take a look at the expertly made mashup below: 

Arriving in theaters October 5, Venom is directed by Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland) and stars Tom Hardy as Brock. Co-starring Michelle Williams, Riz Ahmed, and Jenny Slate, the movie's plot was inspired by two classic storylines from the '90s: Lethal Protector and Planet of the Symbiotes. There is also a rumor that Woody Harrelson (Solo: A Star Wars Story) could be playing the film's villain, Carnage
