After teasing fans earlier this year with a video that hid the full Venom reveal, everyone's favorite alien Symbiote is now on full display in the new trailer release from Sony.

In Venom, Tom Hardy stars as Eddie Brock, a man who becomes linked with an alien Symbiote that turns him into Venom, one of the ultimate villains in the Spider-Man universe. Although Venom and the Symbiote have a big influence on Spider-Man in the Marvel comic books, this film is expected to take place outside of Marvel's Cinematic Universe, which includes the appearance by the web-slinger in the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War.

Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland, Gangster Squad) directed Venom from a screenplay by Scott Rosenberg and Jeff Pinkner, with Avi Arad, Matt Tolmach, and Amy Pascal on board as producers. In addition to Hardy, Venom stars Michelle Williams, Riz Ahmed, Reid Scott, and Jenny Slate.

Venom / Eddie Brock was previously portrayed by Topher Grace in Sam Raimi's Spider-Man 3, and the character first appeared on the paneled page in 1988's The Amazing Spider-Man #300.

Venom is scheduled to come out in theaters on October 5th from Sony Pictures. Stay tuned to Daily Dead and check out the new trailer and poster below!
