The teaser trailer for the movie Venom has been released by Sony Pictures Entertainment, and it looks intense.
"Everyone's got their thing." lead actor Tom Hardy's voiceover says.
Sony describes Venom as “one of Marvel’s most enigmatic, complex and badass characters.” 'Complex' is the right word for it, for sure.
"You used to be one thing" Tom's voiceover continues, "Now you're something else."
What is that "something else"? We don't get to see what that could be, but the rest of the trailer builds up with a slow gathering of intensity.
In a series of flashbacks, we catch a glimpse of Michelle Williams as Ann Weying. The flashback continues to the scene of what looks to be a terrible accident, and then, Tom wakes up in the hospital.
Though he seems to be confused at first, the next few seconds show us how the alien lifeform slowly takes control of Tom's body as he screams in rage. As he screams, the screen fades to black, and the movie's smokey 'V' logo takes over the screen.
The trailer, however, does not confirm Riz Ahmed’s mystery villain character.
Venom is apparently the beginning of Sony's Marvel Universe and is alleged to take place on the Spiderman: Homecoming timeline. Producers Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach are working alongside Amy Pascal on the upcoming movie.
Venom is set to be released in October.
