Tom Hardy is seen facing his demons in a new teaser trailer for upcoming Marvel film Venom.
The actor’s character, Eddie Brock, lies in a hospital bed in the 100-second video with a series of flashbacks showing a car chase as well as Michelle Williams as his ex-wife Anne Weying.
“You used to be one thing, now you’re something else,” Hardy narrates in a voiceover.
“We all have our own problems, our own issues, our own demons,” he adds as Brock screams.
The trailer gives little away – with no sight of Venom – which marks the character’s return to the Marvel fold after Topher Grace last filled the role in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 3 in 2007.
The Sony film is due for release in the autumn and fans on social media were delighted with the brief glance at Hardy’s latest project.
@NinnyaBinnya tweeted: “The moment I heard his voice I got excited. It may not have shown much but, come on, it’s Tom Hardy. He’ll kill it.”
@Rei_Guy wrote: “All in on The Venom movie. Especially because Tom Hardy is the lead. Should be epic.”
@Susanahmadi posted: “i’m just excited to see tom hardy in a movie again y’all can stay mad about venom or just chill.”
Venom is out on October 5.
