Though its been through development hell, fans can start getting excited as an official trailer for the forthcoming Venom has finally dropped thanks to Sony’s CinemaCon presentation.
Starring Tom Hardy as the lethal protector, the Ruben Fleischer directed film is said to not be part of the highly lucrative Marvel Cinematic Universe, though to be fair, the official statements have been far from consistent.
The first trailer received widespread criticism for leaving out the film’s title character. Not to worry, this time around there is plenty of Venom as the majority of the time is spent with Hardy’s alter ego Eddie Brock, primarily detailing his confrontation with Dr. Carlton Drake, a scientist whose experiments are hurting his subjects.
Though we have to wait until the end to get a full look at Venom, in all his grit and glory, fans will finally get a full view of the famed character - for better or for worse.
Co-starring Michelle Williams, Riz Ahmed and Jenny Slate, Venom will hit theaters on October 5.
