We didn’t actually think it would happen when they first announced the film but we’re here. Sony and Marvel have dropped the very first trailer of the Tom Hardy-led Venom, the studio’s first foray into their Spidey Cinematic Universe…. and it’s pretty disappointing. Check it out!
We get no look at the full costume (just a glimpse of the symbiote goo) even though Tom Hardy looks like the Eddie Brock we should have gotten a decade ago. There are subtle hints to what the plot is going to be such as the spaceship crash that presumably brings the symbiote to Earth. We also get a first look at Riz Ahmed and Michelle Williams here. Overall, we’re pretty lukewarm about this. So much for getting excited! Give us some actual alien vigilante action, Sony!
