No doubt the film's post-production team is working overtime to get those effects finished, and while this first look image is somewhat bland given what this movie is, we may be seeing a trailer here before too long. "But our story is primarily based on the Lethal Protector and the Planet of the Symbiotes book".
In the Lethal Protector arc, the story kicks-off with a truce between Eddie Brock and Spider-Man as Hardy's character moves to San Francisco.
Venom is set for a release on October 5. "We want to be as true as possible to the comic with our film", he said.
It's unclear whether that means we'll get to see Venom swing into the MCU or pop up in some other Marvel/Sony film.
In the Brazil Comic Con video, Hardy is visibly excited to be talking about Venom, offering fans his promise to do the beloved Marvel character justice.
Venom is one of the coolest villains in comics but we've never gotten a good version of him. The first is Lethal Protector, which sees Venom leave NY and take up anti-heroism in San Francisco.
As a quick refresher on the nature of Venom, the character is known as a "symbiote", an alien organism that basically attaches to a human host and manifests as the icky Spider-Man-like creature we all know.
I can promise you badass action, Venom's dark humor, and I can also promise you an absolutely stunning performance by Tom Hardy.
"I just wanted to say that I give you my word of honor that I'm going to do everything that I can to deliver the best Venom that I possibly can muster".
Given that Hardy is one of global cinema's most intense, charismatic and unpredictable stars, and that the film's supporting cast includes Michelle Williams, Riz Ahmed, and Jenny Slate, the R-rated Venom is shaping up to be one of the fall's most-anticipated films, even if it's not officially part of the MCU.
