Tom Hardy’s spin-off Spider-Man film is set to be released later this year, and Sony just released the first trailer for the flick, which features Hardy as Spider-Man villain, Venom.
What’s odd is that this trailer doesn’t really feature Venom at all. It has action shots, things exploding, and people running all over the place, but it does not show Venom.
I mean, really…this is just your standard action-movie trailer. There isn’t anything special about it, and maybe Sony is doing this on purpose to not spoil anything, but it is possible to release a great, spoiler-free trailer as well. It doesn’t have to be one or the other.
Venom is set to hit theaters across the nation on October 5, 2018, so there is still plenty of time for Sony to release a better trailer.
