'Venom' Teaser Trailer Has Lots of Tom Hardy, No Venom

Adjust Comment Print

In the teaser, we're shown numerous shots of Eddie in an MRI machine, accompanied by a voiceover that certainly suggests coming to terms with his life, and his own mortality. 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. Brock doesn't appear as his alter ego Venom in the footage. With that said, the studio does plan to use the movie to help kick off its own series of films based on supporting characters from the Spider-Man franchise, including Black Cat and Silver Sable. First, we got a look at Deadpool 2's, Cable and now we have our first look at Venom's own movie.

Anyhow, give the poster a look-see, along with the trailer below and then let us know what you think of the film thus far! We are reminded that such a movie is in development with the arrival of its first teaser trailer today.

Venom is one of Spider-Man's best-known and fearsome villains. "Now you're something else", he says.

The upcoming film, though, is a stand-alone venture that bears no link to this summer's "Spider-Man: Homecoming" starring Tom Holland.

It's written by Kelly Marcel, Jeff Pinkner and Scott Rosenberg (the latter two also co-wrote Jumanji) and produced by Avi Arad, Matt Tolmach and Amy Pascal.

In addition to Hardy, Venom stars Michelle Williams, Riz Ahmed, Scott Haze, Reid Scott and Jenny Slate. Hardy looks to bring a much darker take to the character of Eddie Brock, one of the web-slinger's adversaries, who attains superpowers after being infected by an alien Symbiote. The film isn't released until 4 October 2018 in Australia (and 5 October in the US), so there's plenty of time for the big reveal.
