Sony Pictures has released the first trailer for Venom starring Tom Hardy.
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.
Zombieland helmer Ruben Fleischer is directing the Marvel project, working from a script written by Scott Rosenberg, Jeff Pinkner and Kelly Marcel. Avi Arad, Matt Tolmach and Amy Pascal are producing.
Plot details on Venom are currently under wraps, though Fleischer has previously mentioned that the film will be based on the Lethal Protector and Planet of the Symbiotes comic book runs. Whether or not Spider-Man – who played a significant role in both stories – will make an appearance remains unclear.
The film also stars Michelle Williams, Scott Haze, Jenny Slate, Riz Ahmed, Reid Scott and Woody Harrelson.
Venom is currently scheduled to be released in theaters on October 5, 2018.
