Tom Hardy embraces inner anti-hero in Venom's first trailer

Second 'Venom' trailer shows the symbiote in action

Directed by Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland), Venom is under a lot of pressure to prove that Sony's Spider-verse movies (which also include the upcoming Silver & Black) can thrive without Spider-Man.

While Marvel is gearing up to premiere the culmination of ten years of movies with this week's Avengers: Infinity War, Sony has been rather quietly plugging away with its feature film based on Venom, one of Spider-Man's most popular enemies.

Marvel's new superhero spinoff series stars Tom Hardy who plays a reporter named Eddie Brock as well as Venom, an "alien symbiote" stuck in a human body. There had been much speculation about how the design of the character was being handled in the Sony film, with some wondering if we wouldn't be getting a whole new spin on the character. All in all, the supporting cast of Venom does look good. Hardy's take, on the other hand, is that of an innocent victim who's trying to ward off the encroaching darkness that the symbiote brings into his life. The trailer concludes with Brock's internal fight against the alien force, which results in his body being completely taken over by the substance, thus totally becoming Venom.

"The way I see it, we can do whatever we want". The blend of the symbiote and Eddie Brock is Venom. Finally, the naysayers thought that a lacking Spider-Man isn't on par with the origin story. Just a reminder: we first saw Venom in Spider-Man 3, where the character appeared as the anti-hero to Peter Parker. Tom Holland now holds the role, as seen in "Spider-Man: Homecoming".

After languishing in development hell for almost a decade, Sony's standalone Venom movie finally got off the ground in 2016.

Venom hits theaters on October 5.
