I don't know about you, but I think this trailer looks dumb as hell and makes Venom look like it has the potential to be one of the absolute worst movies of the year. Check out the photos below!

The full movie comes out on October 5, 2018. Be sure to check it out when it becomes available!

The trailer confirmed rumors that the film would be based on the '90s comic book miniseries Venom: Lethal Protector, with Riz Ahmed playing the role of Dr. Carlton Drake.

At a time when Marvel fans all over the world are going ga-ga over the impending release of Avengers: Infinity War, the trailer of Venom stands out with its slick and snazzy portrayal of the anti-hero. It is actually frightening and comic accurate, and not childish and campy like it was in Sam Riami's Spider-man 3.

"But I didn't want to play a damsel in distress", said Williams. When Spidey rejected the symbiote, it found Eddie Brock, a disgraced journalist with a grudge against Spider-Man. What really got fans excited, though, is that we finally get to see Venom itself. "Do we have a deal?" the symbiote replies. The leader of the Life Foundation takes a sample of the symbiote and uses it to make five different offsprings, known in the comics as Phage, Scream, Agony, Lasher, and Riot. He is accused by Eddie Brock, who is a reporter and not a photographer, of recruiting "the most vulnerable for tests that end up killing people". The biggest of which is, how does this connect to Tom Holland's Spider-man?

Unlike Sony's original "Spider-Man" trilogy or the Marvel Cinematic Universe, "Venom" strikes a darker, grittier tone. Venom may or may not be a part of MCU. After failing to get their Amazing Spider-Man reboot to connect with audiences, they released a series of similarly received duds to theaters.
