There are still plenty of people wondering quite how they’re going to make a standalone Venom movie work, especially as while the character may be very popular in the Spider-man universe, he’s normally thought of as a villain. While the first teaser for the movie doesn’t fully explain how Tom Hardy and the alien symbiote will work together, it hints at a Dr. Jeykll and Mr. Hyde vibe.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘One of Marvel’s most enigmatic, complex and badass characters comes to the big screen, starring Academy Award® nominated actor Tom Hardy as the lethal protector Venom.’
That doesn’t exactly tell us a lot, so it’s worth taking a look at the teaser and the poster underneath it. The film itself, which also stars Michelle Williams and Riz Ahmed, is due in cinemas in October.
