Sony Debuts First Teaser Trailer for 'Venom'

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

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

The superhero movies just don't stop coming! It is the first of several movies planned on the antiheroes of Marvel's Spider-Man. If the movie delivers on the teaser, Venom should only accelerate that process.

We see glimpses of his character before the Jekyll and Hyde-esque transformation, and we see hints of what appears to be another intense Tom Hardy performance. We've been told that it's disconnected from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but in the comics, Venom comes from Spider-Man.

Tom Hardy is going to have a big year, ladies and gentlemen.

Since then, Sony has set out to prove it can make its own Spider-Man movie once again.

Now, this is just a teaser trailer.

Crucially, the first shot is of the Golden Gate Bridge, which signals that the film picks up after Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy) has moved from NY to San Francisco.

As you can see from the poster, an IMAX release has also been confirmed for the film.

It's promising that the look of the teaser and the font style takes into account the "Lethal Protector" version of Venom, the character's best iteration. There's still a lot we don't know about Venom, but we won't have to wait long to find out, as the movie is slated to release on October 5th, 2018. Although the design and look of the villain was decent, there was no way to separate Topher Grace from the nerd he played on "That "70s Show". Sony is determined to funnel the goodwill Marvel has injected into their most viable brand into a franchise of their own, and it certainly seems like they're putting all of their eggs in the Venom basket.

It starts off with plenty of noise and action as Tom's character wakes up in a hospital before the camera cuts to him dashing through rooms with alarms shrieking, before we see him riding a motorbike through streets.

The lore says that Spider-man got a parasitic creature called symbiote stuck to his body.

Ruben Fleischer is directing the film, based on a script by Scott Rosenberg ("Jumanji") and Jeff Pinkner ("The Dark Tower").
