The Marvel movie also stars Riz Ahmed (The Night Of), Michelle Williams (The Greatest Showman) and Woody Harrelson (Solo: A Star Wars Story). A deal between Sony and Marvel returned Spider-Man himself to the Marvel Cinematic Universe previous year, but Sony is also trying to build a separate franchise around related characters like Venom, Silver Sable and Black Cat. The first, 1993's Venom: Lethal Protector, in which Venom goes from villain to antihero, and the second is 1995's Planet of the Symbiotes, where Earth is invaded by an army of symbiotes. Notably absent in the trailer is the Venom symbiote itself, though there are plenty of other Easter eggs and moments of note in the minute-long video. Whatever it is, you used to be one thing - now you're something else'.

In our new version of the trailer, which you can watch above, Tom Hardy has been taken back to his days as Batman's nemesis from Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises.

His voiceover warns: 'Everyone's got their thing.

Crucially, the first shot is of the Golden Gate Bridge, which signals that the film picks up after Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy) has moved from NY to San Francisco. In fact, if you forget what you know of the character Venom, you could be forgiven to mistake the teaser as that of a sci-fi movie. The film follows Eddie Brock, a disgraced journalist who becomes the host for an alien parasite that turns him into the anti-hero Venom.

Lastly, right after Eddie says that we all have our own problems, there's a series of action shots, depicting Eddie running through a medical facility, most likely the Life Foundation. From Jessica Jones to the untitled Deadpool film, we've picked up some pretty good looks at upcoming sequels. That definitely shows in this teaser trailer, which was rushed out to accompany the release of Marvel's Black Panther.

Sam Keeley (Anthropoid, In the Heart of the Sea), Tom Vaughan-Lawlor (Avengers: Infinity War, The Infiltrator), and Paula Malcomson (The Hunger Games trilogy, "Ray Donovan") and is directed and written by David Freyne in his first feature film.

The footage puts the "tease" in "teaser trailer" and fails to even briefly show Tom Hardy as the title character. As it stands, we didn't see almost enough for me to feel positive or negative at any level.

"Venom" is set for release October 5, 2018.
