Now this is what a “teaser trailer” should be about!

Sony Pictures has unveiled the teaser trailer to Venom, a spin-off that will begin the live-action Spider-Verse films with Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock, a former photographer who becomes the alien-symbiote sporting villain turned anti-hero Venom.

Eddie Brock heads to San Francisco to start life anew until he finds himself under threat by villains who are similar to Venom. The teaser does not give us a glimpse of Hardy as Venom, but that’s okay. After all, this is a “teaser trailer”. Perhaps when the official trailer is released, we will get the long awaited shot of Hardy as full Venom.

Michelle Williams and Riz Ahmed co-star in the film, directed by Ruben Fleischer.

Venom comes to theaters on October 5 from Sony
