New Images Before Venom Comic-Con Trailer

Ruben Fleischer's Venom is, as you've certainly heard by now, the first in a number of planned Spider-Man-free Spider-Man spin-offs currently being assembled by Sony.

Sony Pictures have unveiled two thrilling new Venom movie stills exclusively through Entertainment Weekly!

Things are less visceral but just as intense in the second photo, which sees Hardy in character as Eddie Brock, the disgraced journalist who transforms into Venom after an insidious alien symbiote enters his body and bonds with him.

"As far as Marvel characters, I have to say for me, Venom looks the coolest", Hardy says with a laugh.

Given that, in the Marvel Comics lore, Dr. Drake performed experiments on Venom at the Life Foundation and extracted five extra entities (Agony, Lasher, Riot, Phage, and Scream) from the symbiote, it seems Eddie - both in human form and as Venom - will be Dr. Drake's little plaything in the upcoming movie.

Venom director Ruben Fleischer compared the characters to a werewolf movie. "That sounds a bit shallow!"

"It's a bit like Ren and Stimpy, you know?" "But this is really about a relationship between two people who have to work together to create this hybrid symbiotic relationship". Hardy said, laughing. "They have different sounds".

Hardy further explained that he saw the character as having "a tragic clown element, which I find amusing and is harmonious with some of the work that I like to do". I always saw Venom as sounding like a James Brown lounge lizard, and Eddie Brock is kind of.I don't know, an everyday kind of guy. "But he's inherited this massive ego, this beast". However, Dr. Carlton Drake (Riz Ahmed) wants the symbiote for himself and will do anything in his power to get it back. "He's a reluctant hero and an anti-hero". "There's that biting-off-heads issue, which is not what you would expect from, say, Captain America taking down a crook". As you can see in the first image below, the live-action version of Venom closely resembles his comic book counterpart, from the terrifying teeth and huge mouth to the large white areas where his eyes are. The film opens in theaters on October 4 in Australia, and October 5 in the US and UK.
