You’ve all wanted to see what Tom Hardy looks like as Venom and now you’re about to find out in the new trailer for Sony Picture’s Venom! After fans were worried by rumors that we would hardly see Venom in this film, it looks like that’s going to be the case at all! This feature film version of the character looks freakin’ badass and I think a lot of fans should be happy with what they see.
The movie was inspired by the 1993 six-issue Venom: Lethal Protector comic miniseries. The story followed Venom moving to San Francisco after he and Spider-Man made a truce. Once in San Francisco, Venom is hunted down by the Life Foundation, who wants to study the Venom symbiote so they can use it for their own evil purposes. From it, they create five new symbiote spawn including Scream, Phage, Riot, Lasher, and Agony.
Tom Hardy is joined by Michelle Williams (The Greatest Showman), Riz Ahmed (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story), Jenny Slate (Zootopia) and Woody Harrelson (True Detective).
Venom is being directed by Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland, Gangster Squad) from a script written by Scott Rosenberg (Pain & Gain, Jumanji) and Jeff Pinkner (The Amazing Spider-Man 2), Venom is set to be released on October 5, 2018.
