‘Venom’ trailer unleashes the famous symbiote, teasing action, Riz Ahmed’s Riot

A new Venom trailer is here, and it has everything fans of the character could want: a dark, broody, intense anti-hero with a creepy tongue and a bad attitude. Tom Hardy stars on the footage, first screened at SDCC, as the new film nears.

Hardy stars as Eddie Brock, a journalist exposes to an alien symbiote which fuses and takes over his life. Based on “Lethal Protector” comic books, Venom will feature Riot as the main villain. That symbiote changes from person to person in the film, but will consume Riz Ahmed’s character to close out the film and can be seen at the end of the footage, check it out below.

Director Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland, Gangster Squad) says Tom Holland (Spidey in the MCU) is not in the film, but a cameo or post-credit scene seems like the perfect setup for another film.

Michelle Williams (The Greatest Showman, Manchester by the Sea) dons a wig as Hardy’s other half, Anne Weying, Eddie Brock’s wife who later becomes She-Venom in the comic book.

Reid Scott (Veep) has been cast as Patrick Mulligan, a police officer who ultimately becomes the RED symbiote named Carnage. The popular red symbiote is more unstable and dangerous than Venom. Rumors are that Woody Harrelson’s mysterious role might be playing Carnage, but who knows, he may just be the final voice.

Jenny Slate (voice actor on Secret Life of Pets, Despicable Me 3) can be seen in the footage as the awkward scientist, Dr. Dora Skirth.

Some other cast include: Michelle Lee is Donna Diego, a yellow and red creepy symbiote named Scream. What is strange is that IMDB listed Sailor Larocque as Donna Diego/Scream, so perhaps there is more to this story or Sailor is doing the motion capture part.

Venom was scripted by Scott Rosenberg, Jeff Pinkner and Kelly Marcel and Will Beal.

Scott Haze will play Roland Treece, a corrupt businessman introduced in Lethal Protector #3. He stars with Mac Brandt, Sam Medina and Gail Gamble.

Woody Harrelson has an undisclosed role and Tom Holland is expected to make cameo (rumored to be an after credit stinger), likely as Peter Parker, not as Spidey.

Venom arrives in theaters October 5, 2018.
