UPDATE: The new Venom trailer is now online!
Venom is getting a third trailer tomorrow - Tuesday, July 31, 2018 - but when exactly will the new footage of the Spider-Man villain film make its way online? So far there have been two trailers for Tom Hardy's upcoming anti-superhero movie released: a symbiote-less teaser in February and a more revealing full trailer in April.
Many fans expected to see a Venom trailer during San Diego Comic-Con. Sony's panel - which focused on Venom and fellow Spider-Man-based Into the Spider-Verse - was one of the major highlights going into SDCC 2018, but while eye-catching footage was shown to Hall H, nothing from either film present was released online. It was speculated that the next Venom trailer may not be until The Predator in September, but that's not the case. Sony-ran account Eddie's Clubhouse teased a new look last week, and now it's confirmed to arrive tomorrow.
Normally when a big movie trailer releases, the exact time is a mystery, with fans left refreshing a studio's YouTube channel for hours. However, in the case of Venom we know care of Sony China: the next Venom trailer will release at 6am PST/9am EST/2pm BST.
It's unclear whether the Venom trailer will be the same as the one that showed at Comic-Con. The footage in Hall H was a conventional trailer, but it's rare for something that's not simultaneously released online to be an identical edit. Given that some of the clips were described as unfinished by those in attendance, what's more likely is it will be some variation of that trailer.
That means we have some idea of what it will include. The Venom Comic-Con trailer featured a greater sense of the plot - Eddie Brock gets experimented on with the symbiote by Carlton Drake - and featured more of Venom in action, both fighting a symbiote villain and being a menace himself by biting a man's head off. What most eyes will be on is, of course, the antagonist, both the confirmed Riot and potentially more of the Five Symbiotes. What you shouldn't expect though, is any of Woody Harrelson, who - if rumors are correct - is playing Cletus Kasady aka Carnage but won't appear until the very end of the movie.
Whatever the Venom trailer brings, be sure to check back with Screen Rant tomorrow for a full breakdown and exploration of everything to expect come October.
