In it, we get to see Fleischer talk for a bit before Tom Hardy comes in and makes the fans go nuts with a free T-shirt. Not only does it star one of Spidey's most popular and enduring foes, it's also the first movie to truly expand the Spider-Man universe in a meaningful way beyond the adventures of the webbed hero.
Details about the movie have been kept top secret, with a closed set and only a few behind-the-scenes images.
Via IGN, we now have our first official look at Tom Hardy's Eddie Brock for Sony's upcoming Venom film. We've been getting a lot of BTS videos and photos from the set, but now we have an official look of Hardy in character.
The photo shows Hardy as Eddie Brock, pre-Venom suit, working as a reporter.
Check out the first Venom movie image below, via IGN. And speaking of origins, in a recording of the Venom panel at last December's Brazil Comic Con Experience, director Ruben Fleischer offered a look into which comics they were mainly inspired by for the film.
The movie, which co-stars Michelle Williams, Riz Ahmed, Woody Harrelson, and Jenny Slate, is expected to arrive October 5.
"We want to be as true as possible to the comic with our film", Fleisher said.
Dark Souls Remastered For PS4, PC, And Xbox One Announced
Dark Souls Remastered will include the Artorias of the Abyss DLC from the start, as well as an increased resolution and framerate. According to a Twitter user called bdsassy , it looks like a Dark Souls Remastered for PS4 has been spotted in the wild.
"Planet of the Symbiotes", meanwhile, follows Eddie Brock's relationship with his symbiote and the influence it has on him.
As for the arc in Planet of the Symbiotes, that plotline sees Earth being invaded by an army of symbiotes with Venom teaming up with Spider-Man and Scarlet Spider to stop them.
Hardy added: "I just wanted to say that I give you my word of honor that I'm going to do everything that I can to deliver the best Venom that I possibly can muster".
Filming for Venom continues on location in San Francisco later in January.
Do you think Tom Hardy, the former Bane actor from the Dark Knight series, would play a good anti-hero?
Given that Hardy is one of worldwide cinema's most intense, charismatic and unpredictable stars, and that the film's supporting cast includes Michelle Williams, Riz Ahmed, and Jenny Slate, the R-rated Venom is shaping up to be one of the fall's most-anticipated films, even if it's not officially part of the MCU.
