The long-awaited first trailer for "Venom" starring Tom Hardy is finally here

Perhaps this is the most awaited first trailer so far in 2018. Venom (2018) is coming out worldwide the 4th of October and producers Columbia Pictures, Marvel Entertainment and Sony Pictures Entertainment are already warming up the motors. Not much of the plot can be extracted from this first teaser, but one can see the main star of the show is the star, Tom Hardy. The new design of the Venom creature is neither seen in this first footage, so it is to expect producers will be leaking out all these in measured dosages.

Venom (2018) is a spin-off from the Spider-Man film franchise. After going through various iterations, an R-rated standalone film was confirmed in March 2017. The intention was to begin a new shared universe featuring the Marvel characters to which Sony Pictures possessed the film rights, though Sony also intends for the film to share the world of Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017), which is set in the MCU thanks to a special deal between Sony and Marvel Studios.

Venom Symbiote is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics, commonly in association with Spider-Man. Venom made his first appearance in The Amazing Spider-Man #300 (May 1988). He was originally conceived as a supervillain but has since become more of an antihero. Venom is a Symbiote, a sentient alien, with a gooey, almost liquid-like form. As with real-world symbiotes, it requires a host, usually human, to bond with for its survival. After bonding, the Symbiote endows its enhanced powers upon the host. When the Venom Symbiote bonds with a human, that new dual-life form refers to itself as Venom.

The movie is directed by Ruben Fleischer, the responsible of the instant classic Zombieland (2009). The script is authored by Jeff Pinkner and Scott Rosenberg, based on the comic characters created by Todd McFarlane and David Michelinie. Besides Tom Hardy in the main role, Michelle Williams, Woody Harrelson, Jenny Slate, Riz Ahmed and Michelle Lee also star. Tom Holland is rumored to reprise his role of Peter Parker/Spider-Man, but that is not yet confirmed.

And with no further ado, here is the first teaser trailer for Venom (2018):
