After a first trailer that seems like it was seemingly rushed out to capitalize on Black Panther hitting theaters in February, the new Venom trailer shows off a lot more of what we can expect from this sort-of/maybe MCU/Spider-Man spin-off. Tom Hardy stars as Eddie Brock, who is a reporting investigating the Life Foundation, who have found alien “symbiotes” are experimenting with fusing them to unwilling human hosts. Eddie is infected with a symbiote, which begins speaking with him and gives him powerful abilities, including transforming into an organic suit that fully encases Eddie inside. Eddie makes a deal with the symbiote uses it’s abilities to escape the Life Foundation’s mercenaries and take down it’s CEO, Dr. Carlton Drake (Riz Ahmed). Michelle Williams co-stars as Ann Weying, Eddie’s girlfriend, and Jenny Slate, Woody Harrelson, Scott Haze, Reid Scott, Sope Aluko and Scott Deckert co-star as well. Ruben Fleischer, the director of Zombieland and Gangster Squad, is behind the camera and the movie is definitely taking a different, but potentially cool and interesting, direction with the infamous Lethal Protector. The movie arrives on October 5th and you can check out the new trailer below.
