    The new trailer for the first Spider-Man Spin-off by Sony has been released, for the character of Venom.



    Venom stars Tom Hardy, Michelle Williams, Riz Ahmed, Scott Haze, and Reid Scott, as the film comes out on October 5th.

    What do you think? Are you excited for Venom, or are you nervous of the new film? Comment below!

    Perhaps some clarification can be said?

    Honestly, I loved the trailer, as it gave more of what the film is about without spoiling possible surprises.

    I love the Venom design, and think that Hardy is going to have fun with Brock.

    Still a bit worried, but I'm far more excited than previously.

    Moneygrab from a studio holding an iconic character hostage.

    Real talk: Venom is a terrible character and outside of his initial arc as a Spider-Man villain has never been worth the ink he's printed on...

    ...except for Agent Venom/Flash Thompson who ended up being way better than he had any right to be.

    That’s kinda my point. Venom without his initial arc first is pretty dumb. And since sony doesn’t wanna play nice with this character for some reason and let that play out proper with Spider-Man and THEN do agent Venom, I’m not really on board with this.

    I dunno if it's "Not wanting to play nice" as much as Marvel probably had no intention of doing the symbiote story

    Yeah that might be true. Still doesn’t look that good. Tom hardy is the only person I would want to play Eddie Brock though.
    Can’t win them all I guess :smash:

    Hardy and MoviePass are the only reason I'll probably end up seeing this at some point

    Yikes. That dialogue is BAD. "The guy you work for is an evil person." I've heard better dialogue in student-made films.

    Also, "Embrace your inner anti-hero" doesn't sound as epic as Sony thinks it does... Feels a little diminishing.

    I don't know y'all... I just... don't have very much faith in this project at all. Especially since one of the writers for the screenplay also wrote 50 Shades of Grey.

    I was holding on to a faint glimmer of hope that this would be what they created. Agent Venom could’ve been such a different comic book movie from anything done before.

    Well....I'm kind of excited for this movie, but the more I hear stuff, the less excited I am for this. With Sony being Sony, you know they're going to screw this up somehow.
