Columbia Pictures – Sony Pictures Releasing

Sony has released a new trailer for its upcoming superhero film “Venom,” and after the first look teaser released last February, its great to finally see the character this time.

Here we see Tom Hardy’s Eddie Brock learning about his new powers, then later morphing into the scary alien symbiote with superpowers.

We also get to see a glimpse of Michelle Williams’ Ann Weying, Eddie’s girlfriend and Riz Ahmed’s character Dr. Carlton Drake, the bad guy and leader of Life Foundation doing some pretty nefarious experiments.

In the comics, Venom’s character is a sentient alien symbiote which needs a human host to survive, eventually giving the host enhanced powers. Eddie Brock is the journalist who comes in contact and bonded with the alien and become Venom, who is both vengeful and a hero to those he deems innocent.

Directed by Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland, Gangster Squad), “Venom” is a spin-off from the Spider-Man movie franchise, and is the first in Sony’s Marvel Universe, though in a recent interview, film producer and president of Marvle Studios Kevin Feige stated that the film will not be part of Marvel Cinematic Universe.

“Venom” is set for release on October 5.
