Tom Hardy is the Marvel character Venom in the upcoming film of the same name. You wouldn't know it, though, by watching the newly released first trailer, as the Academy Award-nominated actor is never seen in the guise of the infamous Spider-Man villain. Plot details are likewise withheld. Instead, we get a procession of action shots depicted free of context -- including a quick look at Michelle Williams and Riz Ahmed -- and a voice-over from Hardy ominously observing that "You used to be one thing, and now, you're something else." Check out the trailer below, and look for Venom to hit theaters on October 5.
