Not only do we get to see our first look at Venom, we also hear what Tom Hardy's voice sounds like when he says, "We are Venom". Not even Venom's first trailer attempted to clarify this, but that wasn't why it left so many disappointed.
In the film, Eddie Brock is a journalist reporting on the machinations of Carlton Drake's Life Foundation.
It is expected that the new trailer that's going to release soon will meet up to fans' expectations. Hello?" wrote one fan, while another said, "How can you tease the movie without showing the character? Otherwise, this cast is stupidly stacked, and we finally get a good look at everyone- Hardy, Jenny Slate, Michelle Williams, and evil businessman Riz Ahmed- though they're kind of swimming in the sort of CGI-flooded action that typically screams "paycheck".
Centering on the Spider-Man villain, "Venom" "is primarily based on the "Lethal Protector" and "The Planet of the Symbiotes" books", director Ruben Fleischer told the crowd in a video statement to audience at Brazil Comic-Con last December. More recently, the Venom symbiote has been moving between hosts, including Mac Gargan (aka The Scorpion) and Peter Parker's old high school rival, Flash Thompson.
Earlier this year a Venom teaser was released, which did not receive pleasant feedback because of the lack of this character, and too much Eddie Brock. Watch the trailer below. The same character was next seen in Spider-Man 3 and was portrayed by actor Topher Grace.
