Sony Pictures: “Venom” Official Trailer (2018)

The world might be getting amped up for “Avengers: Infinity War” which opens up this week and while this is pretty much the biggest news in the film releases about the super-hero stuff; Sony Pictures is going to be expanding the world of the Amazing Spider-Man with a number of films of their own. Back in February we got a teaser trailer for the “Venom” film which stars Tom Hardy but it didn’t show much of anything and it was only a short time ago that the first full Official Trailer was released. Check it out.

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

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’ve noted before that I am not too sure how I feel about a Venom character without the Amazing Spider-Man involved at any point and as you can see by this longer traler, Sony has really taken some liberties with his origin story. It looks like it will be exciting but I think we are going to get more tendril scenes and explosions than The Big Guy as was disclosed by some notable Vloggers recently. Though I’m willing to give it a shot, I am more content and satisfied with the Marvel Cinematic Universe since they have done so well for the past ten years. What do you readers think about this trailer? Chime in down below in the comments.

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.
