'Venom': Tom Hardy Debuts Anti-Hero at CinemaCon

Venom teaser trailer face

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.

Last year, Geek reported that Tom Holland's Spider-Man will have no part in this flick.

Then we see Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy) announce that as a journalist, he follows people who do not want to be followed.

Released in February, the first trailer for Sony Pictures' Venom was met with a mixed response from audiences and fans.

The movie is expected to release on October 5.

The film is scheduled for release Q4 of 2018. Eddie Brock, played by Hardy, is a reporter and Peter Parker's colleague at The Daily Planet.

Venom has been directed by Ruben Fleischer (best known for directing Zombieland), and is meant to be the first film in Sony's Marvel Universe. We get to see a Spider-Man-like origin story in the new trailer.

Venom will be the film that kick-starts the new Sony Marvel Universe, but there are already plans for more to come in the future.

Michelle Williams of "Manchester by the Sea", "Brokeback Mountain", "The Greatest Showman" and "I Feel Pretty" co-stars as Brock's lawyer girlfriend Ann Weying.

Venom is crash-landing into theaters and online with a full-fledged trailer, and we've got the latest clip all broken down for your perusal.

Venom is directed by Ruben Fleischer and is the first film in Sony' Marvel Universe. In fact, this trailer only gives marginally more information than the teaser preceding it.

Yes indeed, this new trailer shows Venom rather than just Eddie Brock, but not before giving us a little bit of backstory. Now, Sony has sent an apology to fans in the form of an epic official trailer that shows the Symbiote in all of his glory.

Venom will hit United Kingdom cinemas on October 5, and is directed by Zombieland helmer Ruben Fleischer.
