Venom Movie Trailer: Breakdown And Connection To The Comics
Created by Mat Elfring on
The first teaser for Venom was released recently, and it's not quite what fans expected. Aside from Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy) not wearing the symbiote during any part of the video, tonally, it felt more like a horror or thriller than a comic book movie. It's completely unclear whether or not this movie takes place in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, as Venom is solely a Sony movie, while Spider-Man: Homecoming was a Marvel and Sony collaboration.
While the comic book version of Venom has a history directly tied to Spider-Man, the webslinger will not appear in this movie, but that doesn't necessarily mean Peter Parker isn't in it. That may be a bummer for many fans, but the movie is planning on taking a new direction: horror and sci-fi.
Venom isn't coming to theaters until October, but the first teaser for the gave its audience a trailer that's mysterious but delivers the horror and sci-fi tone that was originally promised. Here's what we learned.
