The Symbiote is hungry for arms and legs and pancreases and other human tidbits… and Eddie won’t be able to stand in his way forever.
If you were worried that Sony was going to tone down the character, you can stop now. The internal arguments between Brock and Venom continue, and the violence ramps up in this new trailer.
It’s… iffy. The CG looks much more polished this time around, and that motorcycle action scene looks like fun. It’s got a dark sense of humor that feels right. I’m not as skeptical as I was when the project was announced, but I’m not about to rush out to see it. I’ll probably see later in the run just for the action shots… maybe the story can back those up.
When it comes down to it, though: this is a Sony produced movie. Their track record with the Marvel IP they have isn’t all that great. Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland, Gangster Squad) is in the director’s chair; Jeff Pinkner (Amazing Spider-Man 2) and Scott Rosenberg (Con Air) teamed up on the screenplay. They didn’t go with Topher Grace again, which is a definite bonus.
