While there may be some people in the world who would argue that Topher Grace did a fantastic job as Eddie Brock in ‘Spiderman 3’ the fact of the matter is, it took Tom Hardy just 1m 50s to prove that he is a much better choice for the character. There’s not much to see in the first teaser, but don’t worry, you’ll still be glued every single second. Let’s have a look at it:

So, not much to see right? Compared to the ‘Deadpool 2’ trailer that dropped last night you could even go as far as saying there is absolutely nothing to see here. You wouldn’t be wrong. For the casual superhero fan, you won’t get most of what’s happening in the teaser. But, for the hardcore comic book fan, there are a few things to notice. We’ll list them out here for you:

1:01 – We get to see the symbiote in all its glory. Not as a piece of goo. Also, it’s supposed to attach itself to Spiderman before getting attached to Eddie Brock. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like Tom Holland is set to make an appearance here. This movie is not going to be a part of the Marvel Cinematic niverse. Unfortunate, but true. Guess you could say it’s doomed to fail right from the start? We hope not.

1:03 – Riz Ahmed is in the movie. You didn’t notice it was him, did you? Go back and check it out. It’s him. Wow! He’s supposed to be Carlton Drake who is the head of the Life Foundation. 

1:08 – It looks like Eddie is going to be involved in some hardcore reporting in this one. Just look at him trying to get away on a motorcycle all Mission Impossible style.

1:16 – We do get to see the symbiote taking over his body a bit. Notice the veins. No, we don’t get to see him as Venom. But, we do get to see a really cool graphic which is in tone with the comics. Hopefully, he’ll look just like he does in the comics.

Here’s a fun fact for you. The Director of the movie said that the movie is based on a Venom comic where there are more than one symbiote-human bonds. If that’s true it means there’ll be more than one superpowered character in this movie. That should be interesting.

Let’s end with something Eddie Brock said in the trailer. ‘You used to be one thing, now you’re something else.’ This could just be him talking about how he has changed after the symbiote merged with him. Or maybe, he’s talking about the Venom from Spiderman 3 who was, let’s be fair, creepy, but more interested in making jokes than going on a crazy murder spree, Let’s hope there’s a lot of killing and hardcore R-rated action in this one.

We’re ending with a question for you. Who’s the girl? Leave your answers in the comments.
