Synopsis: “One of Marvel’s most enigmatic, complex and badass characters comes to the big screen, starring Academy Award® nominated actor Tom Hardy as the lethal protector Venom.”
First off, Tom Hardy in the streets of San Francisco doing cool guy stuff is always a good thing. Looks like they went all in with the thriller/horror/sci-fi angle instead of kowtowing to the happy, shinny, superhero market we find ourselves currently drowning in. As a teaser it sets up a guy who is dealing with some demons, but other than that its pretty sparse with the details (probably because they’re still in post-production).
Most likely fanboys will be fuming at how they didn’t get to see their precious symbiote or how its not true to the comics or whatever, but people – get your priorities in order! Tom Hardy and Michelle Williams – two amazing actors doing a genre piece like this? Now THAT’S something to be excited about. Plus it looks like they may be going a more psychological thriller route instead of the very stale superhero tropes that have been recycled for the past decade.
