‘Venom’ Trailer #2: Tom Hardy Embraces the Dark Side

The new full trailer for Venom declares the world has enough superheroes. Each successive trailer has shown more of Tom Hardy (Mad Max: Fury Road, The Dark Knight Rises) as Eddie Brock struggling to come to terms with the symbiote who is sharing his body. The teaser and first full trailer provided only a glimpse of Venom, but this new three-minute trailer shows everything from the transformation to action scenes involving Venom taking on good guys (and bad). It also confirms the film will have a touch of humor, with Eddie joking he has a parasite after a store clerk witnesses an attack by Venom.

Oscar nominee Tom Hardy (The Revenant) leads a cast that includes four-time Oscar nominee Michelle Williams (Manchester by the Sea, My Week with Marilyn, Blue Valentine, Brokeback Mountain), Emmy winner Riz Ahmed (The Night Of), Screen Actors Guild award winner Reid Scott (Veep), and Scott Haze (Only the Brave, Thank You for Your Service).

Ruben Fleischer (Gangster Squad, Zombieland) directs from a screenplay by Scott Rosenberg, Jeff Pinkner, Kelly Marcel, and Will Beall. Avi Arad, Matt Tolmach, and Amy Pascal produced the Marvel Comics film adaptation. David Householter and Stan Lee served as executive producers.

The Very Generic Plot Description: 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.
