The Venom trailer was released today following on from the surprise release of the film poster yesterday.
The film appears to be working hard to play down its comic book origins with a distinct lack of focus on Venom, and more the story behind the character of Eddie Brock, played by Tom Hardy.
When Brock joins with the alien symbiote, the two entities become Venom. Clearly Sony are trying to take the focus away from Venom, maybe this is due to the backlash that ensued from Sam Raimi's Spider-Man 3 interpretation of Venom, or perhaps not.
The film is not scheduled to release until October so there is plenty of time for further trailers and promotional material showing Venom.
Are you surprised that Venom was not shown in the first trailer or is this what you expected, and what do you think of the trailer as a whole?
