First Look at Tom Hardy as Venom Leaks Online

An eight-second first look at Tom Hardy in full Venom mode leaked online Monday - hours before the full trailer for Sony's upcoming Marvel movie "Venom" was due to be released. No worries this time.

Arriving in theaters October 5, Venom stars Tom Hardy, Riz Ahmed, Michelle Williams, Jenny Slate, Scott Haze and Reed Scott.

The San Francisco-set thriller sees Hardy as Eddie Brock, a gutsy road journalist exploring the dubious logical dealings of a shady business head honcho named Carlton Drake (Riz Ahmed), who is likewise better referred to in the comic books as hereditarily transformed super-scalawag Homo Arachnis.

The clip in question shows the alien symbiote envelops Eddie Brock, as he declares, "We are Venom".

Coli Warning now Involves all Romaine
Though the government says the problem lettuce comes from Yuma, Arizona, it remains unclear who grew, supplied or distributed it. On Friday night, the corporate office let Aguilar know that the romaine lettuce he pulls out of this drawer is in the clear.

Fortunately for fans who were displeased with the first teaser, this new trailer is a completely different beast.

Ruben Fleischer is directing the film, based on a script by Scott Rosenberg ("Jumanji") and Jeff Pinkner ("The Dark Tower").

I'm glad that Venom is getting some love after all the Spider-Man movies that have released over the last few years. The new trailer doesn't come anywhere near close to making the same mistake twice. That was until it was resurrected to kick-off a Spider-Man universe disconnected from the MCU. "Lethal Protector" is a more grounded story focused on Eddie Brock's day-to-day life under this symbiote's control, while the other is a much more cosmic-centric tale. This is a Sony Pictures production, and since they still retain the rights to characters like Venom, Silver Sable, and Black Cat, they're moving forward with their own cinematic universe of heroes that originated in the pages of Spidey comics.

Venom is now slated to hit theaters on October 5, 2018.
