New Venom Trailer Shows the Symbiote in Action

We're not sure how or if Spider-Man (now played by "Avengers: Infinity War" star Tom Holland) will make an appearance, but Sony did make the movie in association with Marvel, so we're crossing our fingers.

So by now comic book fans have probably heard that Sony is releasing a new Venom movie later this year.

The film is scheduled for release Q4 of 2018. The trailer concludes with Brock's internal fight against the alien force, which results in his body being completely taken over by the substance, thus totally becoming Venom. The point is, Sony got the ball rolling on the movie, cast the brilliant Tom Hardy (Bane in The Dark Knight Rises) in the titular role, and began filming without involving the webhead himself. Starring Tom Hardy in the lead, Venom is going to be the first film in Sony's Marvel Universe. The Symbiote went on to merge with other hosts, most notably Eddie Brock, its second and most infamous host, with whom it first became Venom and one of Spider-Man's archenemies. This symbiote takes to Eddie Brock and kills at will. Cue snippets of several action sequences, which end with Brock transforming into the character as people know it looks.

In the teaser trailer that was released several weeks ago, the CGI for the film was not finished yet, but now we see the symbiote suit in all its glory. Earlier the character had appeared Sam Raimi's Spider-Man 3, where it was played by That '70s Show fame Topher Grace.

"Venom" will not be connected to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, according to Entertainment Weekly.

Directed by Ruben Fleischer of "Zombieland" and "Gangster Squad", "Venom" is heading towards a release date of October 5, 2018 in U.S. theaters with worldwide rollout commencing the same week.
