EDDIE BROCK IS MORE THAN VENOM
VENOM TRAILER SHOWCASES EDDIE BROCK WITHOUT THE SYMBIOTE
Sony Pictures hit fans with a one-two punch these past two days. Not only was the movie poster for the upcoming Venom film released to the public, but the first teaser trailer is now out as well.
One of the images from the trailer that bleeds into the movie poster clearly shows the symbiote.
The trailer focuses on Eddie Brock before he meets the Venom symbiote. He appears to have some health issue as he needs an MRI scan and later wakes up to go crazy while inside of it. There is the usual action sequence involved in the trailer with a brief glimpse of the space shuttle crash that brought the symbiote to Earth. We also see Michelle Williams as Eddie’s ex-wife from the comics, Ann Weying.
The crucial detail of the trailer is the San Francisco setting. The film was reported to be loosely based on the “Lethal Protector” arc of the comics, which sees Brock move to San Francisco after losing the symbiote. The guess would be that the film is merging the “Lethal Protector” arc with the introduction of Brock and the symbiote. The “Lethal Protector” arc does include Carnage at some point, along with newer symbiote forms that are related to Venom, but we have yet to see the Venom symbiote in the trailer.

Venom will be out on October 5th. You can check out the trailer below:
