We didn’t even actually get to see Tom Hardy as Venom. Still better than Topher Grace.
It’s been a decade and Sony pictures finally made up for the mess and the embarrassment that was Topher Grace and Venom. They didn’t even need to show us the demon creature in this teaser trailer for me to know, that this is going to be great.
The whole trailer is kind of shrouded in mystery and it seems like this will be a deep psychological thriller. Not so much of a comic book movie, where it’s bright and fun, but it seems serious and grounded. The trailer has a very serious Chronicle vibe to it, at least that’s what it reminded me of. A real life person gaining extraordinary powers and seeing it done in a very realistic and level way. I’m all for that when it comes to this incredible character, who happens to be one of my favourite characters in all of comics. I didn’t want them making fun or making Venom light hearted and a fun movie, because he’s anything but that. He’s a tortured soul and conflicted to say the least. Eddie Brock was a good person, with a few problems before the symbiote attaches itself on to him.
From what I could gather from the trailer, it looks like the symbiote has merged deep within Eddie and is giving him more powers than we are used to seeing. He’s just not becoming this demon, but it looks like he may have some telepathic powers. This could be the case until he transformers into the monster fully. Venom looks pretty dark and twisted and Tom Hardy is going full on deranged mode. Something has crashed to Earth and Eddie being a reporter more likely goes to investigate and something happens, he changes. As they put it in the trailer, “You used to be one thing, now you’re something else.”
This looks promising because it doesn’t look like every other comic book movie being released. It doesn’t even feel like a comic book movie to be honest. So far so good, can’t wait to see what he looks like as Venom!
Check ya later.
