Venom’s teaser trailer is here, minus one important symbiote suit.

When the Venom movie was first announced, Spider-Man fans were skeptical. After all, remember when Topher Grace was Eddie Brock? Or when Tobey Maguire first donned the Symbiote Spider suit and then it turned him into a whole different person? We can’t forget the dancing. The. Cringe. Worthy. Dancing. Thankfully the first teaser for Venom features none of those things. Instead, there’s Tom Hardy’s Eddie Brock attempting to get over a breakup while driving his motorcycle through a rather insane crash. “We all have our own problems. Our own issues. Our own demons,” Hardy’s Brock says in the trailer as it immediately makes you think — he’s definitely going to murder somebody later, isn’t he? While the trailer doesn’t give away too much, except for the brief glimpse of the symbiote that will become very important later on, it does the trick. A perfect teaser doesn’t give away everything and for once, Sony succeeded. Now I’m quite terrified if Tom Holland’s Spider-Man is going to make an appearance as rumored.

Til then, watch the trailer. Venom arrives in theaters on October 5th.
