The new clip comes courtesy of Fandango. It features Reyes showing the alien technology embedded in his back to his family, as well as to Bruna Marquezine’s Jenny Kord. While the family is shocked, Kord explains the history behind it, and that the device is “some kind of world-destroying weapon” given to her father, Ted Kord.
