Behold the Venom Teaser Trailer Starring Tom Hardy


Directed by Ruben Fleischer from a script by Jeff Pinkner and Scott Rosenberg, Venom stars Tom Hardy, Jenny Slate, Michelle Williams and Riz Ahmed. From Jessica Jones to the untitled Deadpool film, we've picked up some pretty good looks at upcoming sequels. "Maybe it's a break up... an accident". Apart from the actual symbiote being shown, we're only given boring snippets of Hardy running in a forest and riding a motorcycle, some vehicle crashes and what looks like Hardy using a force push on office workers...

It also offers an unnerving glimpse of the sentient symbiote known as Venom - one of Spider-Man's most famous nemesis.

Watch the teaser trailer for yourself below. See, in Marvel's comics, Dr. Drake is a member of the Life Foundation, a paranoid group of humans who were obsessed with assuring a Utopian future for their wealthy clients. There was a bit of a hullabaloo back around the release of Spider-Man: Homecoming that implied the new film would be a near-unrelated offshoot of the current Spidey incarnation, but reporting since then has implied that it is an entirely separate entity.

The teaser for the film, which doesn't resemble a superhero tentpole, ends with Hardy's Eddie Brock screaming at the top of his lungs as his body shakes in the machine. Nope and nope. I know it's a teaser trailer, but we should at least get excited for something or given some semblance to a plot. Lethal Protector was the first comic that changed Venom, aka Eddie Brock, from a full-fledged Spider-Man villain into an anti-hero. While we get a first look at Hardy as Eddie Brock earlier this year, now Sony has released the film's first trailer. However, fans have been quick to point out that while we spot some of the symbiote alien goo in a canister, the main man himself is nowhere to be seen.

As is with most teaser trailers, it doesn't show too much. Whatever it is, you used to be one thing and now you're something else.

With no confirmed release date, Venom is penned for October 2018.

Visually, the trailer is still the same, and the score set behind Hardy's antics remains unchanged.

Sony is due to release "Venom" on October 5.
