Following yesterday’s poster release, Sony Pictures has now brought online the first Venom trailer! You can watch the trailer above.
Venom has been in development at Sony for years, even during the era in which Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy reigned supreme. Eddie Brock made his big screen debut in the heavily-maligned Spider-Man 3, where he was played by Topher Grace. In this new adaptation, Hardy takes on the role of the reporter-turned-Spider-Man nemesis. You can watch the trailer below. Going along with him are Michelle Williams, Riz Ahmed, Jenny Slate and Woody Harrelson.
Venom will hail from Sony’s Marvel Universe of characters and will not be a spinoff of the current Marvel Cinematic Universe, wherein Sony permits Spider-Man to be played by Tom Holland. Plot points of interest on Venom are as of now under wraps, though Fleischer has beforehand mentioned that the film will be founded on the Lethal Protector and Planet of the Symbiotes comic book runs. Regardless of whether Spider-Man – who assumed a huge part in the two stories – will show up stays a mystery. Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach are producing alongside Amy Pascal, with Palak Patel and Eric Fineman directing for Columbia Pictures.
Coordinated by Ruben Fleischer and composed by Scott Rosenberg and Jeff Pinkner, the Venom film is set for an October 5, 2018 release date.
