For those who might’ve been wondering if Sony’s Venom (starring Tom Hardy) would actually look like Venom, worry no more. He does.
Keep in mind this short clip is only part of a longer trailer that was set to run during CinemaCon in Las Vegas. That footage will presumably still run, which will happen later tonight. Actor tom Hardy has also confirmed that that trailer will be released to the public, so we’ll all be getting a much better look at the alien suit in action, in just a little bit. So, with that in mind…
OH MY GODDDDDD
What do you think? Yes, it’s just a first glimpse, but I think he looks pretty rad. I love the effects of the suit morphing over Hardy’s Eddie Brock, and even the voice comes off well. As a big Venom fan myself, I cannot wait to get a better look – so hurry up and release the trailer already Sony! Fingers crossed of course, for the movie itself, as it’s got a few hurdles to jump. The biggest being that Tom Holland’s Spider-Man isn’t a central part of the plot, and is rumored to only cameo at some point. Still, with a Venom that looks this authentic, I’m game to at least hold out hope that Sony will do a solid job with the story. Check back here later tonight (hopefully) for the full trailer. Venom hits theaters on October 5th.
