Looking forward to it, but I imagine it will be one of those things where we don't get to see the full Venom symbiote look.

Poster is simple but I like it. Looking forward to the trailer tomorrow. I have a strange curiosity about this film even though I think it potentially could be bad. Itís my most anticipated comic book film of the year behind Infinity War. I hope it surprises and is at least decent. Also still holding out hope that the rumors of it being a secret MCU film are true and we get Holland in the film even for just a cameo.

Not much to go on... They barely even show the title in this... Just in the website and hastag. Pretty weird... If you didn't know this was coming out, you probably wouldn't know wtf it is.

If it weren't for the MARVEL logo, I would've thought this was some type of generic action/thriller piece.

That was trash. Good thing though because I dont want to encourage Sony to make any Spiderman movies without permission and oversight from Disney. Easy pass.

Shitty teaser. Not even an indication of who/what Venom is.

Yeah, that was disappointing. Canít believe they didnít even a quick shot of Venom at least. I donít think it looks bad from whatís seen but like others have said it looks generic and not like a Marvel film unless you know it is one.

I have a feeling this is Sony going back a step and into the realm of Amazing Spiderman type shite. If they are going with the gun totting Punisher style Venom then its really gonna be like a 2018 version of Spawn (and lordy that movie was garbage from start to finish). Is Amy Pascal still running things at Sony? If thats the case then i give this movie a snowball in hells chance. She is like a co-worker i know that seems to continually be in a state of being half drunk with rolling watery eyes and very scattered speech patterns.

How do you release a teaser for a Venom movie that doesn't have a single shot of Venom in it? Sony is so worthless.

There isn't even enough there to make an assessment if it looks good or bad.

I'm all in favor of trailers that don't give away the whole movie, but that one overcorrected in the wrong direction.

That reminded me of Spawn for some reason.

Ditto a big Meh. Fox's New Mutants looks different than the MCU but it actually looks intriguing, this not so much

Probably didn't show Venom since the vfx wasn't done. Someone posted elsewhere they rushed this to place in front of Black Panther.

I didnít say it looks good either. Iím just saying based off of what is seen itís looking alright if not a bit generic. I actually want this to be good and am anticipating it even though I feel like it has more of a chance at being a disappointment.

If true, it's particularly ironic considering the new Deadpool teaser.

But Deadpool 2 wrapped a while back IIRC and comes out in 3 months. Venom only wrapped last month and comes out in 8 months, so kind of understandable why the VFX wasn't done, though if they were smart (and it is Sony after all, so understandable why they're not), they would've had something done.

Still a bit surprised Tom Hardy would sign on to this.

Yeah, Iím surprised they didnít have at least a little but done just so you could catch a quick glimpse. Even if it was mostly shrouded in shadows or something. Just to get an idea of what the character will look like.

I'm pretty sure Groucho was referring to the Deadpool 2 trailer making fun of unfinished CGI.

The fact that Hardy and Williams signed to do this, gives me hope the script is actually descent.
