Fans were sceptical when the first teaser for Venom arrived without a glimpse of the popular Marvel villain. But with the new trailer comes reassurance.
Venom finally appears in all his CGI glory as Sony Pictures released the first theatrical trailer for the upcoming Tom Hardy-headed Spider-Man spinoff Venom during its studio presentation at CinemaCon in Las Vegas.
Tom Hardy who essays the role of Eddie Brock, a journalist investigating an evil scientific corporation in the process becomes a host for an alien symbiote with superpowers.
Eddie and the Venom symbiote become one for the entire second half of the trailer, with Brock struggling with his newfound alter ego. By the end of the footage, he has fully embraced his inner monster – or inner anti-hero, if you prefer – completely transforming into Venom a pretty spectacular moment.
Sony didn’t make the best first impression with their initial teaser trailer, which showed us a lot of Eddie Brock but none of Venom. However with the new trailer, what stays with you is that final glimpse of Hardy turning into Venom, who will take an anti-hero persona in the film.
The film also stars Michelle Williams and Riz Ahmed and is written by David Michelinie and drawn by Mark Bagley, as well as Ron Lim and Sam Delarosa, the movie is inspired by “Venom: Lethal Protector”, a six-episode limited series that notably reinvented Venom from a Spider-Man villain to a Marvel Comics anti-hero.
Some gripping action scenes and high-octane stunts leave the audience wanting to see more, however, with an October 5 release date, fans have some time to wait before they can watch Tom Hardy’s Venom in all its glory on the big screen.
