Sony's Venom

Sony Pictures Entertainment has released the first teaser trailer for Venom, their long-awaited Spider-Man spinoff starring Tom Hardy in the title role.

The trailer runs nearly one and a half minutes in length but definitely is a teaser, holding back on showing too much. You can check out the trailer along with a recently released poster below.

Spider-Man: Homecoming Trailer #3

Ever since Sony announced that they would be building a Spider-Man-less spinoff universe, fans have been wondering how that world would work. An entire superhero universe of supporting characters for a top-tier superhero without the top-tier superhero sounds weird and confusing, to say the least. But Sony is confident that it could work now that they are moving forward with Venom and Black and Silver. The former is already well into production, with Tom Hardy playing the titular lead. And even though there have been some conflicting stories, Amy Pascal has stated that the Spider-Man of the MCU would not be a part of the Spider-Man-less universe that they are creating.

Now there is a little rumor that Spider-Man may actually appear in Venom. More on the story below.

Venom

As far as first looks go, there is no way that a studio would ever make a huge reveal outright. The first photos are generally teasers to get fans and audiences interested but they are also nothing to get overly excited for. Still, it does let us know that said movie is coming, and that is true for Sony’s first Spider-Man spinoff Venom.

The first photo has just been revealed, and it’s of star Tom Hardy. But not as Venom, the black suit alien symbiote. But the down-on-his-luck investigative journalist who will eventually bond with the suit to become the anti-hero Spider-Man knows all too well. Check it out below.

Woody Harrelson In Talks To Join The Cast Of ‘Spider-Man’ Spinoff ‘Venom’

Woody Harrelson

Sony’s first attempt to launch a Spider-Man universe was mocked and ridiculed for trying to keep up with the Marvel Cinematic Universe by squeezing in every single possible Easter Egg you can think of into one itty bitty film. So after that was a huge disaster, the studio decided to share the character with Marvel, effectively killing the Amazing Spider-Man universe. But in doing so, they were able to re-evaluate that same universe. However, there’s plenty of red tape that will not allow the Spider-Man characters Sony currently owns to play in the Marvel Studio sandbox.

So, with so many characters at their disposal, they are creating a Spider-Man less universe where all Spider-Man supporting characters can come play. As absurd as that sounds, it looks like they are drawing some major attention. Venom in particular, as it touts a cast that consists of Tom Hardy, Michelle Williams, Riz Ahmed, and Jenny Slate. And if that weren’t impressive enough, the Ruben Fleischer-directed film will be adding Woody Harrelson to the cast. Find out more on the story below.

Sony Has Plans To Expand Their Spider-Man-Less Spinoff Universe

Venom

Spider-Man recalls that there was a point in time when Sony had the ambitious plans of creating a cinematic universe on the back of the fairly weak Amazing Spider-Man movies. Those plans never came to fruition, and the studio was forced to scale back on the plans, even resorting to sharing the Webslinger with their Marvel competitors over at Disney.

However, that deal worked out in both of their favors, and with Spider-Man: Homecoming being such a huge success, Sony can look forward to building a Spider-Man-less cinematic universe using supporting characters like Venom, Silver Sable, and Black Cat. The studio has already announced that there will be two films based on those characters, and they intend to announce a few more in the coming months. More on this story below.

Venom and Carnage

We found out just last month that Mad Max: Fury Road, The Dark Knight Rises, and Inception star Tom Hardy was set to star in the R-rated Spider-Man spinoff Venom with Zombieland and Gangster Squad director Ruben Fleischer behind the camera.

Going with the R-rating—with confidence gained from the successful releases of Deadpool and Logan—is a great start. Now it looks like another step in the right direction has been taken. There was a rumor a few years back (when the movie was going to be co-written and directed by The Mummy director Alex Kurtzman) that the movie could feature none other than Carnage, and it appears that will be the case.

Venom

This year, Sony started to develop spinoffs based on Spider-Man supporting characters. This has been something that Sony Pictures CEO Tom Rothman and the studio has been cooking up for quite some time. While Sony has the authority to approve these spinoffs, they won’t officially be a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe – even though Spider-Man has already joined it.

Venom will reportedly be the first of the spinoffs to be released, with a Black Cat and Silver Sable film to follow. And now we know who will play Venom and who will direct the film as well. According to various reports, Tom Hardy (The Dark Knight Rises, Mad Max: Fury Road) will play the title character, while Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland, Gangster Squad) will direct. More on the full story below.

Venom

Spider-Man continues to be Sony’s flagship superhero. But now that studios are in the business of shared universes, Sony wants to cash in on the same success they are having. However, their first attempt was less than successful thanks in no small part to The Amazing Spider-Man 2‘s underperforming box office numbers. But now that they are sharing the Webslinger with Marvel Studios, they are going to take another stab at it starting with Venom.

More on the story below.
