More than thirty years ago, Venom made his first appearance in a Spider-Man comic. Growing up, Venom (we’re talking the classic incarnation that’s Eddie Brock fused with symbiote) was always one of our favorite Spider-Man “archenemies” because Brock was always getting the short of the stick and, well, parasites gotta parasite. The character was always kind of dick with a fair bit of humor and even some potentially “anti-hero” style escapades thrown in for good measure. He was the bad guy you couldn’t help but root for. Which is why Tom Hardy is the perfect actor to play him in the upcoming Venom film that hits theaters on October 5th. You already saw the first Venom Official Trailer, now check out the second. Even if this movie is a complete dumpster fire (which we highly doubt), at least it will make everyone forget about the guy from That 70’s Show playing the character in an earlier film.
