The new trailer for Venom, Sony’s Spider-Man spin-off starring Tom Hardy as the toothy anti-hero, just screened at CinemaCon in Las Vegas ahead of its official release tomorrow. But, of course, some champion of the people who goes by Mister Battleck on Twitter has already leaked the most interesting part: namely our first look at Tom Hardy’s transformation-via-symbiote into the titular character. So Sony, bless ’em, threw caution to the wind and moved up the global release. So here it is!
That is Tony Todd as the voice of the symbiote, right? If it’s not, it’s someone doing a damn fine impression.
Directed by Reuben Fleischer and co-starring Michelle Williams, Riz Ahmed, Scott Haze, Jenny Slate, and Reid Scott, Venom is in cinemas from October 4, 2018.
