Here is "Venom," in all his gory glory.
Sony released a new trailer for the movie, which stars Tom Hardy as a journalist named Eddie Brock who comes into contact with an alien symbiote that fuses with him. That gives him superpowers but also turns him into a slime monster with a really gross, long tongue.
“I found something really bad,” Eddie says. “And I have been … taken." And in this universe, there's no Liam Neeson to save him.
This trailer provides a better look at Riz Ahmed's Dr. Carlton Drake, who's conducting experiments on merging humans and symbiotes — and eventually becomes Riot, even more powerful than Venom.
Venom is a character from the Spider-Man universe, though this movie is not part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. That likely means we won't see Tom Holland's Spider-Man in this movie or any of the other villain-focused movies Sony is developing.
"Venom" opens in theaters October 5.
Journalist Eddie Brock is trying to take down Carlton Drake, the notorious and brilliant founder of the Life Foundation.
