New ‘Venom’ Trailer Actually Shows Tom Hardy As Venom

Sony released previous trailers for Venom during CinemaCon. It’s only fitting the studio debuts the latest one during its presentation at the entertainment convention. If you felt there wasn’t enough of Tom Hardy as his alter ego Venom in the previous clips, you’re luck. He’s actually in full-on Venom mode in the new trailer.

Venom was originally conceived as a supervillain, but has since become more of an anti-hero. The character 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. His most notable host was Brock who was a journalist.

Also starring in the Ruben Fleischer-directed superhero flick are Michelle Williams, Riz Ahmed and Reid Scott. Venom arrives in theaters October 5. Check out the official trailer below.
