'Venom' Teaser: Tom Hardy Shouts Down His Demons As Marvel's Lethal Protector

Tom Hardy in first Venom teaser trailer

Venom star Tom Hardy has released a few behind-the-scenes pictures of him in action as Eddie Brock, but finally a trailer has been released for the movie - and it looks bloody epic. The latest superhero movie to give us an early teaser is Sony Pictures' VENOM, starring Tom Hardy and directed by Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland).

Because of the Oscar pedigree of stars Hardy and Michelle Williams, Venom isn't at all like what you'd expect.

The trailer really doesn't give us much to go on about the film's story, but we can probably infer that Eddie is seriously ill given the initial shot of him inside an MRI machine, before he freaks out during a scan.

Venom is one of Spider-Man's best-known and fearsome villains. Plot details are still sparse, but we know the thriller is based on Venom's first solo book, 1993's Venom: Lethal Protector. Yes, Tom Hardy has done the motion capture for the symbiote, but there's no guarantee that footage will be ready for some time. Homecoming, a Sony film which is directly part of the MCU (and features an extended appearance from Robert Downey Jr's Iron Man), Venom will be on its own track, though it will technically take place in the same world.

This post may contain affiliate links, which means we receive a commission if you make a purchase using one of the affiliated links. We do get our first view of the symbiote, though, not on Hardy.

The new trailer focuses way more on the symbiote than some fans might realize at first glance. When the Venom symbiote bonds with a human, that new dual-life form refers to itself as "Venom".

All in all, it's an intriguing teaser, but if I had no idea who Venom was, I wouldn't be sure what they were trying to sell me. Audiences have learned to look at teaser trailers as a full trailer, nearly always with some sort of major reveal at the end. On top of creating a freakish studio jumble of intersecting cinematic universes, that means it's very unlikely that Tom Holland's Spider-Man appears in the film. Venom is out in theaters on October 5, 2018.
