Venom Trailer Shows Dark Side
Sony’s new trailer for Venom is out. And it surely gives off Tom Hardy’s dark side. Tom Hardy’s take on the Marvel anti-hero is really different. The violence filled trailer that was released on Tuesday showed us that Tom Hardy’s journalist would transform into a black alien. Eddie Brock- the alien would have sharp teeth and a strong desire to stop evildoers. In the comics, the character Venom is typically violent and the movie will continue with the same image and the studio has promised an R-rating for it. The film, however, does not resemble the ordinary superhero movies that we have seen.
Venom also stars Riz Ahmed – the actor behind the symbiote Riot. Riot’s character will be bigger and much stronger than Venom’s. During the film, Riz Ahmed’s character argues that human beings are disposable. And that man and symbiote combined can give the highest form of life. The film would just get darker and darker as it progresses. At one point, Tom Hardy’s Brock threatens to rip off a man’s face, arms and legs. Later, he simply apologizes saying that he has a parasite.
This would be Michelle Williams and Riz Ahmed’s first superhero film. Along with them, Tom Hardy, Woody Harrelson, Jenny Slate, and Reid Scott are also a part of the star cast. The movie will be directed by Ruben Fleischer and is scripted by Scott Rosenberg, Jeff Pinkner, and Kelly Marcel. Venom is produced by Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach, and is expected to hit theaters on October 5th this year.
The badass character of Venom came up in 1988 from Marvel Comics. It first arrived on big screens a decade ago in ‘Spider Man 3‘ in which its played by Topher Grace. Now it’s coming back to big screens, but this time the Academy Award nominee Tom Hardy will be the lethal protector of Venom.
