The Symbiote was originally introduced as a living alien costume in The Amazing Spider-Man #252 (May 1984) with a full first appearance as Venom in The Amazing Spider-Man #300 (May 1988).
"We are Venom", the symbiote says at the end of the film, after taunting Brock for the latter half of the trailer. Before the interview, Eddie Brock refers to Carlton Drake and tells his girlfriend Ann Weying that the guy she works for is "an evil person".
What's worth bearing in mind here is that it will have absolutely nothing to do with the MCU. Apparently, this movie will exist in "Sony's Marvel Universe" and will have no direct ties to the Marvel Cinematic Universe we know and love. Will you be watching it? Venom is a villain in the Marvel universe who is the result of the bonding of an alien creature with an investigative reporter called Eddie Brock. But in today's preview, there's plenty of the symbiote to go around.
Seemingly one of the only Marvel characters who's not in Disney's soon-to-be-unleashed "Avengers: Infinity War", Venom is getting his own stand-alone film from Columbia Pictures. We get to see a Spider-Man-like origin story in the new trailer.
"Being part of this movie is a dream come true". The upcoming film also stars Michelle Williams, Scott Haze, Jenny Slate, Reid Scott, Woody Harrelson, Sope Aluko, and Scott Deckert, and will open in theaters on October 5, 2018.
"The way I see it, we can do whatever we want". The design is also taking a smart step away from the only other live-action version of the character, which appeared in 2007's Spider-Man 3. This trailer runs longer than the previous one and actually shows what Venom in this particular movie looks like.
