Sony Pictures Just Released the Venom Teaser Poster
Earlier today, Marvel dropped the first trailer for Deadpool 2, which was fan-fucking-tastic. And apparently not ones to be outdone, Sony Pictures just dropped a teaser poster for the upcoming Venom film, starring Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock, rival reporter to Peter Parker/Spider-Man. The official social media accounts for the film on Twitter and Facebook shared the official movie poster today, showcasing the eyes of the badass symbiote. The poster comes after the studio unveiled the first image of Hardy’s titular character last month.
The post’s caption read “Tomorrow,” along with the Venom hashtag — which we can only imagine as being when the first trailer will be released. You can check out the poster below:
In the comics, Brock’s body is taken over by an alien symbiote that transforms him into the villain known as Venom. In later comics, the character is more of an anti-hero, which seems to be the tone director Ruben Fleischer is looking to give viewers, as the film will be based on the Venom: Lethal Protector and Planet of the Symbiotes story arcs.
Let us know if you think the film will live up to the hype. The Venom film is slated to hit cinemas on 5 October 2018.
