Sony has released the first teaser for Venom and it’s a true teaser, giving very little away about the film. Venom, butchered in Spider-Man 3, is one of the most popular villains/anti-heroes (depending on the host) in Marvel Comics, and Tom Hardy is a great choice to embody that. I’m not sure what Sony intends with its Spider-Man-free Spiderverse. I think rather than give Tom Holland up, Disney would rather buy Sony at this point. What we do know about the film is summarized by Coming Soon below. The film also stars Michelle Williams, Riz Ahmed, Jenny Slate, and Woody Harrelson. Venom will hit theaters October 5, 2018.
