Sony Pictures: “Venom” Teaser Trailer (2018)

As you’ve most likely learned by now, Sony Pictures will be expanding the world of the Amazing Spider-Man with a number of films despite the characters long awaited inclusion in the Marvel Cinematic Universe where he rightfully belongs. One of these films is “Venom” which stars Tom Hardy as the famous “villain” and the first teaser trailer for it was just released. Let’s take a look.

The Cast/Characters:
Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock/Venom
Michelle Williams as Ann Weying
Riz Ahmed as Carlton Drake

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Move along folks, not much to see here…..yet. I don’t usually talk much about the teasers but will say that this one was a big disappointment. Sure we see some action and some Tom Hardy but nothing with the actual character of Venom in it. They are probably saving that for the longer trailer which will come I imagine in a few more weeks. I guess its too early for an overall premise to include here but at least we got the casting of a few of the characters we will find in the film. That’s all I will say for now. What did you readers think? A quick notation is welcome before we get the full on trailer. Ciao for now.

Sony Pictures Offer Frights w “Slender Man” Official Trailer

Take a look.

Sony Animation: “Spider-Man: Into The Spiderverse” Teaser Trailer

Though the excitement about films is pretty much relegated to the Friday opening of “Star Wars: The Last Jedi”, it was cool to see the Official Teaser Trailer for the 2018 animated film “Spider-Man: Into The Spiderverse” which comes care of Sony Pictures animation division. Check out yon teaser below and then I’ll add in some editorial thoughts.

The Premise: In the “classic Spider-Man mold”, Miles Morales must juggle his high school life with his status as a Superhero.[2]

The Cast:
Shameik Moore as Miles Morales/Spider-Man
Liev Schreiber
Mahershala Ali as Aaron Davis/Prowler
Brian Tyree Henry as Jefferson Davis

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Based on the characters popularity, its nice to see Miles Morales making his way to the big screen even if its first being done as an animated feature. One has to think that by doing it in this fashion that Sony Pictures will also deliver the mega-popular Spider-Gwen and perhaps even the futuristic Spider-Man 2099. The opportunities are endless with the Spider-verse despite is not being connected to Disney’s Marvel Cinematic Universe. I am okay with that as long as we can keep on using the traditional Peter Parker Spider-Man. Since I don’t say much about teaser trailers, I will close out with that this looks promising and that is because the animation can be so spot on nowadays based on the technology. Let’s just hope for a solid story. I’ll add more on this when a longer full trailer comes to light and to leave you with some material, below are some links to Miles Morales Spider-Man items. Let me know if you liked the teaser down in the comments below.
