VENOM Footage Wows; Reveals Insane Symbiote Action, Riot, Multiple Villains, Axe Hands & Heads Being Devoured

Sony Pictures wrapped up their Spidey Universe-centered presentation with a spectacular showcase of Tom Hardy's highly-anticipated Venom, revealing tons of monstrous new details on the villains and more.

Venom has been flying under the radar thus far, due mostly to a pair of essentially work-in-progress trailers, but, after its SDCC presentation tonight, it looks like the film has finally arrived.

The new extended trailer, which contained a few unfinished VFX shots and is not expected to be released online this weekend, was met with a thunderous response and left the jaws of attendees hanging on the floor. As per multiple accounts, there is plenty of symbiote action throughout the film as Venom (Tom Hardy) engages in brutally vicious fight scenes with other symbiotes, including the now-confirmed Riot (Riz Ahmed). Director Ruben Fleischer also adds that Riot will have the unique ability to jump from host to host, which will keep audiences on their toes as they try to guess who he's hiding within. 

Additionally, there were also at least two other symbiote villains, one blue and one yellow. The latter is believed to be Scream. Unfortunately, there was no direct mention of Carnage during the panel, but Fleischer did tease that there may or may not be other villains in the movie that have yet-to-be-revealed. 

As for Venom himself, he'll actually be quite massive in size, with some claiming he's at least 10 feet tall, and he'll share plenty of characteristics with his comic counterpart, including stretching out of Eddie's body to speak to him, transforming his fists into giant axes, and ripping heads clean off unsuspecting baddies. He'll also be packing more than a few quality one-liners, including "Eyes. Lungs, pancreas, so many snacks. So little time."

While there have been rumblings that Tom Holland will indeed appear in Venom, neither Fleisher nor Hardy was particularly forthcoming when asked the big Spider-Man question. Fleisher coyly teased, "At some point down the road they will hopefully cross paths," while Hardy was a little more direct with his response, "Go toe to toe with Tom Holland? I'll have a go!"

While CBM was unfortunately not in attendance tonight, we do have an in-depth footage description from our friends over at ComicBook. Check it out below:


"Eddie Brock enters a convenience store. He knows the lady here. She says he looks like shit. He's not feeling well. She suggested to him previously that he medidate. At home, he puts a disc in his DVD player and while laying on the floor meditates. Flashes of him running through the woods kick in. He smacks his face on the couch. He pounds pills. He looks unwell and calls someone to say he's feeling very sick. He awakens, startled. Later, he walks through an alley and sees Venom in the reflection of a car window before being flung against a wall.

Riz Ahmed's character rules that human beings are disposable. Man and symbiote combined is the future. He tests one on a man who is bent out of shape violently. Eddie is tests later. As ra result, he brutally beats men in his apartment with Venom's help. His motorcycles is sandwiched by cars but Venom holds them off.

Venom tells Eddie his previous life is over. Eddie doesn't want to just hurt people. Venom emerges and talks to Eddie face to face. After Eddie's body is bent and broken, Venom heals him and stands 10 feet tall. He holds a man up and licks his face.

Ahmed's character is proud of his creation. Action scenes flash by. Eddie starts to come around on the power. His gal (Michelle Williams) seems concerned about that. A woman throws spikes out of her back and into civilians at a market. Venom's arms turn into giant axes and he wipes out a slew of enemies. More action scenes. Venom fights Ahmed's symbiote counterpart. Venom threatens to eat a man's face off of his head who is bothering the woman in the convenience store. When he asks "What the hell are you," half the face disappears and Eddie and Venom say, "We are Venom." Then, he eats his head. Eddie emerges and says goodnight to the woman.
"
