Sony made the announcement not long ago that it would once again begin developing and producing a spinoff film to the Spider-Man movie franchise. Simply called Venom, the film centers around Tom Hardy as the titular character (a.k.a. Eddie Brock) who happens to be one of Spidey’s biggest enemies. We’ve learned in the past how the story of the movie will be conducted (via Polygon), and now we have our first look at the actual film itself via a teaser trailer.
As you can see, there isn’t much going on in this first look. Sure, there are explosions, Hardy screaming while in an MRI machine like he’s insane, and motorcycles. But without a glimpse at Vehom himself, the teaser remains extremely vague. I suppose we’ll have to wait for the full-length trailer to get a look at the “lethal protector.”
Venom hits theaters October 5th.
