Sony continues their bold marketing strategy for Venom. Just as the first official image from the film showed Tom Hardy looking like Tom Hardy, so does the teaser trailer that dropped this morning.

Venom recently wrapped production, so all of the visual effects are still baking. Still, they should have gotten at least one quick shot of Venom ready for the teaser. If that wasn’t possible, they should have waited.

Venom is in theaters October 5 and will hopefully include the title character.
