‘Venom’ Teaser Image Displays Classic Costume!

The Agent Venom rumors swirling over the past few days made zero sense, and thankfully Sony put a stop to it with this teaser logo that displays the classic Venom design on what appears to be an early logo.

Collider shared the following image out of CCXP that shows Eddie Brock as Venom, in what looks like Randy Schueller and Todd McFarlane’s iconic design from 1988.

I love that Tom Hardy is playing the title character not only because he’s one of the best actors around, but because he physically encapsulates the Eddie Brock from the comic (unlike the ridiculous casting of Topher Grace in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 3).

It’s still unclear who will portray Carnage (read about the character) and his human persona, Cletus Kasady, although Riz Ahmed was rumored for the role.

Targeting a release next October, Zombieland‘s Ruben Fleischer is directing the film also stars Michelle Williams,  Scott Haze and Jenny Slate.

Here’s the art with the tagline “We are Venom,” cause, ya know, both Brock and the alien symbiote are one in the same.

  • I hope the film itself uses that design.

      this

  • Geno1987

    Looks ok for a t shirt design.

  • DC_Fan38

    Ugh… the “#”
    I know, I’m old… But it just looks tacky to me.
    Anyway, hoping for the best from this one.

    Where’s Gyllenhaal

  • chien_clean

    I have zero confidence in this. Feels like Sony is rushing to get this to the screen.

    how it teases it if is just a drawing?

    • J Jett

      yeah, i’m confused on this as well.

    • Hopefully, because that’s the character design they are using in the actual film. If not, then it’s unfortunately just a piece of throwaway promotion for the expo.

  • Meatwad

    My expectations are low just saying…

  • J Jett

    wait, where is the teaser?

    • abyx34

      It says teaser image.

  • TheGuy

    Am I the only one who thinks Walter Goggins is a way better choice to play Cletus?!

    • Weresmurf

      Dude he’s been my number 1 choice for years. Number 2 was Jackie Earl Haley.

      • Nitzan Rotschild

        Ben Mendelsohn would have been great, but I dig your choices too.

        • Weresmurf

          Mendelsons fantastic. Been a huge fan of his since I he was a kid on tv here in Australia. He definitely has the range and ability.

    • MrX13

      He would have been a great Cletus/Carnage. His range as being psychotic is awesome and believable.

  • Synisterintent

    The “We are Venom” poster makes me so happy

  • HeWaTcHeSnOeYeS

    No response to any news about this movie, it’s gonna be another cringey Sony superhero movie most likely.

  • Harriz022

    I think this film has potential, def excited to see it

  • MrX13

    Kind of curious of how this Venom movie will look like. Spiderman 3 didn’t portray him well but with Hardy and Fleischer, it should be a better one

  • abyx34

    Finally something else than another remake or reboot of the spiderman movie, man, it was about time!
