Venom Teaser Trailer Starring Tom Hardy


Now that Spider-Man has been redeemed on the big screen and welcomed into the Marvel Cinematic Universe with open arms, Sony is faced with the tricky task of building a related stable of films that no longer have Spidey front and center. Their solution is to develop several spin-offs based on other characters in the Spider-Man universe, the first of which will be Venom. The movie revolves around Eddie Brock, a journalist who eventually bonds with an alien Symbiote to become a “lethal protector” of sorts. Not much else is known about the plot and the first teaser trailer really doesn’t help in that regard, but it does remind us that Tom Hardy and Michelle Williams are both starring in this movie. Venom is directed by Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland) and hits theatres on Oct. 5th; check out the first teaser after the jump and see what you think.

    Some of the shots like the desks clearing are so obviously missing the Venom tendril effects. Right here it looks like he has force push powers.

    Love Tom Hardy and Michelle Williams but I’m not sure about this. I mean Venom is supposed to be a bad ass villain. Now Sony is turning the character into a anti-hero? I’ll see it for Tom Hardy and Michelle Williams but I’m not sold on this.

    Venom has been an anti-hero in the comics before though. He had his own book..
