Sony Pictures has released their first teaser trailer for Marvel Studios’ upcoming film, “Venom”.
Fans got their first glimpse of Tom Hardy in the film about the notorious supervillain from the Spiderman universe.
Hardy plays Eddie Brock, who has a life-changing encounter with an alien symbiote, which turns him into Venom.
While the teaser trailer does show a brief glimpse of the symbiote imprisoned within a glass container, and its black essence spreading through Eddie’s body, fans will have to wait to see Hardy’s full transformation into Venom.
The film is directed by Ruben Fleischer, and also stars Riz Ahmed as Carlton Drake and Michelle Williams as Ann Weying.
In the comics, Drake is a doctor who captures Venom to experiment on him, and Weying is Venom’s ex-wife, who later also bonds with the symbiote, to become She-Venom.
Sony reportedly plans for Venom to launch its own franchise, in the same vein as Spiderman: Homecoming.
Venom is set to be released on 5 October 2018.
