The Marvel comics villain tuned anti-hero is heading to theaters in October.
Sony has released the first teaser trailer for Venom. The movie comes from director Ruben Fleischer and stars Tom Hardy as the title character.
One of Marvel’s most enigmatic, complex and badass characters comes to the big screen, starring Academy Award nominated actor Tom Hardy as the lethal protector Venom. This film is not yet rated by the Motion Picture Association of America.
Check out the teaser trailer below -- though fans hoping to catch their first glimpse of Hardy suited up in the symbiote will be sadly disappointed.
Venom stars Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock / Venom, Michelle Williams as Anne Weying, and Riz Ahmed as Dr. Carlton Drake. The film comes from a script written by Scott Rosenberg, Kelly Marcel, and Jeff Pinkner. The character of Venom originated as a villain in the Spider-Man comic books, and previously made his big screen debut in Sam Raimi's Spider-Man 3 where he was played by actor Topher Grace.
Though some rumors continue to hint otherwise, Sony has previously stated that this film will not be connected to Spider-Man: Homecoming or the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe. With that said, the studio does plan to use the movie to help kick off its own series of films based on supporting characters from the Spider-Man franchise, including Black Cat and Silver Sable.
Venom is scheduled to premiere on October 5, 2018.
