The official image gallery for Sony Pictures’ Venom has come swinging in and while there aren’t any new looks at the title character, there are quite a few new shots of Tom Hardy‘s Eddie Brock, Riz Ahmed‘s Carlton Drake and Michelle Williams‘ Anne Weying (who may or may not become She-Venom).
Also, a bit surprising, but we just now got our hands on an official synopsis that breaks down the film’s central plot. It’s everything we thought, although I’m curious what “fuels” the rage in the symbiote? Maybe Drake’s experiments on it?
Man, we can’t wait for next week!
“One of Marvel’s greatest and most complex characters takes center stage as Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy) becomes the host for the alien symbiote Venom. As a journalist, Eddie has been trying to take down the notorious founder of the Life Foundation, genius Carlton Drake (Riz Ahmed) – and that obsession ruined his career and his relationship with his girlfriend, Anne Weying (Michelle Williams). Upon investigating one of Drake’s experiments, the alien Venom merges with Eddie’s body, and he suddenly has incredible new superpowers, as well as the chance to do just about whatever he wants. Twisted, dark, unpredictable, and fueled by rage, Venom leaves Eddie wrestling to control dangerous abilities that he also finds empowering and intoxicating. As Eddie and Venom need each other to get what they’re looking for, they become more and more intertwined – where does Eddie end and Venom begin?”
Venom arrives on the big screen on October 5.
