'Venom' drops first trailer and Tom Hardy morphs into the anti-hero we all need — watch

"If you're going to stay, you will only hurt bad people." The first full-length trailer for "Venom" is here and it's amazing.



The first trailer for "Venom" has dropped and it's glorious. The clip gives fans a sneak peek at the highly-anticipated upcoming Marvel movie. Tom Hardy plays investigative reporter Eddie Brock, who is looking into a shady corporation that's experimenting on people with symbiotes. True to Marvel form, the main character (Brock) somehow gets bonded to a symbiote and morphs into what we've come to know as Venom.

You should be extremely afraid.

"If you're going to stay, you will only hurt bad people," Brock says to his inner Venom in the trailer. Keep in mind, as with Sony's other comic book movies, "Venom" won't directly connect with the Marvel Cinematic Universe. So, no Spider-Man tag teams happening here. "Venom" is scheduled to land in theaters on October 5th, 2018. Watch the full trailer above!
