In a new trailer, first released at CinemaCon overnight, viewers finally get to see Tom Hardy playing Venom in the upcoming movie.
The first teaser for the movie showed Eddie Brock before his transformation into the comic villain, however the latest trailer shows him as the anti-hero.
The reporter’s transformation begins when he is infected by a ‘Symbiote’, which is an alien parasite that requires a host to live. In the comic book series, the first host for Venom is Peter Parker, however, the alien then moves on to Brock.
Watch the two-and-a-half-minute trailer here:
The film also stars Riz Ahmed, Michelle Williams, Jenny Slate, Reid Scott, and Scott Haze.
No characters used in Marvel Cinematic Universe movies will make an appearance in the film as the film will instead form part of Sony’s Marvel Universe.
Along with the trailer, a new poster for the film was released.
