Hardy himself took to Instagram on Sunday to tease a new "Venom" trailer screening at CinemaCon in Las Vegas this week. In one scene, Eddie is seen trying to negotiate with the symbiote, until he finally embraces it and fully transforms into Venom. What a PR disaster it was. With this trailer, Sony has shown that they are listening to the fans and the critics and that they do actually care about the product they are developing beyond its impact on their annual profit margins.
Tom Hardy stars as Venom and fits the bill perfectly, we have to give it that.
The trailer also confirms previous reports that the movie would refer to Eddie and the symbiote as two entities ("we") which have their own consciousness. Before the interview, Eddie Brock refers to Carlton Drake and tells his girlfriend Ann Weying that the guy she works for is "an evil person". The alien symbiote that got transferred to his body starts using him as host and killing people. Let us know what you think in the comment section! Anyways, enough about the specifics of the dang trailer release and on to the goods. We highly doubt that Ruben Fleischer is willing to go as dark or as gory as Whannell does in that film, but we're kind of hopeful!
Ahmed added, "Not only is this my first superhero film, but I've also always wanted to play a big movie villain, and that came true in this and especially against the wild power that is Tom Hardy". These movies, The Predator and Venom, had up until today done nothing to encourage my opinion to the contrary.
Watch new trailer for Venom below. Venom seems to be using it for humour, instead.
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.
