Venom trailer shows first look as Sony's Spider-Man spin-off

Venom trailer shows first look as Sony's Spider-Man spin-off

When Kasady escapes prison, he ends up going on a killing spree so violent that Spider-Man and Venom put their differences aside and team up to fight him - so it'll be interesting to see how cinema's newest antihero fares on his own. The shooting for the film was wrapped up last month. We know that the scientific research scenes are set in the Life Foundation, as that will play a major role in Venom, and it appears they have the symbiote and are studying it - they also seem to be studying Brock.

While the teaser does not show any Venom, we get a fleeting glimpse of the dreaded symbiote.

Tom Hardy is going to have a big year, ladies and gentlemen. As Hardy says in a voice-over, "whatever it was, you used to be one of them". "Venom" is a chance for filmmakers to show us just how different this film could be. In fact, except for the Marvel logo as a hint, people who don't read Spider-Man or watched Spider-Man 3 (count yourself lucky) probably won't realize this movie is about a comic book character at all. Sony, by breaking with that, has insanely ramped up the anticipation for Venom.

"Putting out a Venom trailer without Venom is like a Solo trailer without Han Solo", wrote another.

While some fans might have some disappointment that they can't see Venom in action, Sony is sure to reveal the character when we get closer to the actual release date in October. Counter that with the zero shots we saw of what Venom will actually look and we are left with a trailer that does absolutely nothing to drum up interest for me.

Eddie was introduced by Marvel Comics in the 1980s. We can presume the MRI has to do with the symbiote having infested Hardy's body and it's not reacting well.

"Venom" is out this fall, and if the new teaser trailer for the upcoming Sony superhero flick is any indication, fans should get ready to embrace the dark side.

As promised, "Venom" should arrive in theaters October 5.

The film co-stars Michelle Williams (who you can briefly see in the teaser), Woody Harrelson, Jenny Slate, Riz Ahmed, and it's rumored that Tom Holland might appear as either Peter Parker or Spider-Man, but that's unconfirmed.
