Directed by Ruben Fleischer from a script by Jeff Pinkner and Scott Rosenberg, Venom stars Tom Hardy, Jenny Slate, Michelle Williams and Riz Ahmed.
The movie has an October 5 release date. Ahmed's Drake looks to be our main antagonist at this point. If you look into the glass room you can see several of the containers sitting around amongst some equipment.
In a time where superhero movies are one of the most popular genres in cinema, we're used to having the costume and alter-ego as part of the trailer since it's the draw of the film. Tom Hardy is stepping into the title role as Eddie Brock in a universe where he isn't one of Spider-Man's greatest villains, but his own hero... or anti-hero... or worse. If I didn't know who Venom was, I'd have even less of a clue as to what this movie's going to be about.
In 2015, Sony Pictures struck a collaborative deal with Marvel Studios over the film rights to Spider-Man. After merging with the symbiote, Spider-Man gained enhanced powers, but he ultimately parted with the symbiote after discovering it was a living alien that required a host to survive. That's because the first teaser trailer for the highly anticipated comic book film failed to actually show the character. Again, the joy of teaser trailers.
