I'm not going to say it was a wise choice to cut a Venom trailer and not actually feature a look at Venom, but here we are. It's unconfirmed who Ahmed is playing, officially, but it's pretty obvious that he's Carnage, Venom's main adversary.
We get a glimpse of Eddie Brock undergoing a medical procedure and only a quick glimpse of what could be the symbiote as he dashes from room to room amid shrieking alarms.
Venom stars Tom Hardy as the titular symbiote, though we don't get a chance to see the anti-hero in action during the trailer. It is said that the film will be a part of Tom Holland's Spider-Man universe - it has also been rumoured that Holland might make a cameo in the film.
Next week's Black Panther from Marvel Studios is already looking like it will be an enormous hit, and every other studio is hoping to get their trailers in front of the millions of eyes that will be seeing that movie. Check out 40 Venom teaser screenshots in the gallery below!
Sony have just released the first teaser trailer for Venom.
It's admittedly still early to pass judgment on the movie, but going by this unbelievable first trailer, Venom seems to be a solid first step for Sony's upcoming cinematic universe.
Although the trailer doesn't offer a first look at Hardy as Venom - it is just a teaser trailer, after all - it does give some insight into the storyline and how Hardy will be infected with the symbiote. The last time Venom was on the big screen was in Spider-Man 3. Created at the height of the industry's boom - and the brainchild of Randy Schueller, David Michelinie, Mike Zeck, and Todd McFarlane - the character first appeared as a black replacement costume for Spider-Man. Venom is a Symbiote, which is somewhat of alien being.
Venom will exist outside of the universe occupied by the Avengers and will have more in common with Marvel's R-rated movies such as Deadpool and Logan. Audiences have learned to look at teaser trailers as a full trailer, nearly always with some sort of major reveal at the end.
