Don't Miss! Check Out The New Trailer For 'Venom'

Wednesday, 25 Apr, 2018

Tom Hardy debuted the footage at Cinema Con.

Well, maybe the tactic worked, as a new trailer for Sony's Venom has appeared, and now every single person on the internet wants to see what Venom looks like. An investigative journalist, Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy), discovers that the diabolical Dr. Carlton Drake (Riz Ahmed) is doing research with symbiotes, organisms that can merge with people and create superhuman hybrids. Check out the photos below!

Venom will be released on 5th October 2018. Be sure to check it out when it becomes available! This trailer runs longer than the previous one and actually shows what Venom in this particular movie looks like.

The first trailer released in February was underwhelming and didn't give us a hint of the story or a single glimpse of the titular character in action.

In that film, the Venom suit took inspiration from Spider-Man's costume, including its webbing design. Hardy refers to himself in plural "we".

The trailer shows Brock as he investigates a seedy corporation doing some questionable experiments. Looking forward to Tom Hardy becoming Venom? "Do we have a deal?" says Venom.

Michelle Williams is playing the female lead of the film.

It's pretty clear that this Venom is very different from the one we got in Sam Raimi's Spider-Man 3 back in 2007, which saw Topher Grace in the iconic role. The one without Venom in it, that looked terrible?

It is instead intended the first film in Sony's own new superhero universe, which runs separately from the MCU and features the Marvel characters to which Sony possesses the rights. Apparently, this movie will exist in "Sony's Marvel Universe" and will have no direct ties to the Marvel Cinematic Universe we know and love. It is hard to imagine Venom without Spider-man.
