Tom Hardy's Eddie Brock is a journalist who interviews Carlton Drake (Riz Ahmed), the head of the Life Foundation, an organization in the comics that used the symbiotes to create additional Venom-esque creatures. Brock gets possesed too, but it makes him more of a super-anti hero who takes on bad guys, even when he doesn't want to. The trailer focuses on how Hardy's character turns into Venom, and this time Marvel fans are satisfied to see the fully transformed Venom in action by the final minutes of the trailer, replete with the tongue twisting.
Apart from aforementioned cast, Woody Harrelson, Michelle Williams, Jenny Slate, and Reid Scott star in pivotal roles.
Hardy's character is a reporter who tries to look into the experiments which he suspects are killing its test subjects before he accidentally comes into contact with the symbiote.
Venom lands in cinemas on October 5th, 2018. While there's certainly an explosion or two, the trailer shows this film is going to have a darker tone than your typical Marvel cinematic universe movie.
Fleischer plays up the possession aspect of the symbiote, and the mental war Hardy's character will be fighting.
So by now comic book fans have probably heard that Sony is releasing a new Venom movie later this year. This trailer runs longer than the previous one and actually shows what Venom in this particular movie looks like. In an interview with MTV News correspondent Josh Horowitz, Venom producer Matthew Tolmach praised Hardy's acting. And that is what we are here to see. The suit "remembered" those powers when they attached to Eddie Brock, explaining why Venom is so close to Spider-man.
The clip opens with a mysterious police hunt in a darkened forest, before we're given a cryptic peek at Brock as his body is overtaken by the titular alien symbiote.
