With less than a week to go before Venom finally drops into theaters, a brand new TV spot has been released to further tease fans about Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy) and his journey of dealing with his new abilities thanks to the symbiote.
The new TV spot focuses on Eddie Brock meditating as he attempts to gain the upper hand on his new abilities as Venom. What he has witnessed with his new powers is incredibly dangerous at times and at worst, can be lethal. The new TV spot also gives some more exciting glimpses at all the action that ensues.
You can watch the new TV spot down below:
This new adaptation of one of the most iconic Spider-Man villains is the second iteration of Venom seen on the big screen. Before Tom Hardy stepped into the role for this standalone story, actor Topher Grace played the character in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 3. Many critics and fans were underwhelmed with the film as a whole, and the use of Venom was a significant part of why. While people enjoyed the design and found the action involving Venom in the finale to be exciting, many also felt that he was severely underused and by the end of the day, wasted.
Hopefully, director Ruben Fleischer and the rest of the cast and crew have brought an interesting new story to the table with this film. Now that we are less than a week away, we are finally going to see what Sony has in store for the rest of their Spider-Man universe adjacent to the webhead’s presence in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Here is the synopsis for Venom:
One of Marvel’s most enigmatic, complex and badass characters comes to the big screen, starring Academy Award® nominated actor Tom Hardy as the lethal protector Venom.
Directed by Ruben Fleischer and written by Scott Rosenberg, Jeff Pinkner and Kelly Marcel, Venom stars Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock, Michelle Williams, Scott Haze, Jenny Slate and Riz Ahmed, with Woody Harrelson.
Venom opens in theaters on October 5, 2018.
