The latest trailer for Sony’s symbiote-centred story, Venom, gives us our best look at villain Riot (Riz Ahmed) so far.
Peppered with sly humour and a heaped helping of grossness, this Venom trailer follows up on the SDCC announcement that Riz Ahmed will be portraying the film’s villain, Riot – a bigger, stronger symbiote than Eddie Brock’s anti-hero, and the only creature that could take on Venom and stand a chance at winning.
The film follows Brock, a journalist, who become host to an alien symbiote, as he squares up to Ahmed’s Dr. Carlton Drake, a.k.a. Riot.
Directed by Ruben Fleischer from a screenplay by Jeff Pinkner, Scott Rosenberg and Kelly Marcel, this marks one of Sony’s first Spider-Man spinoffs, which the studio are hoping will lead to a wider universe of Spidey villains and anti-heroes.
Venom is set for release on October 5th.
