Tom Hardy wrestles with his inner demons in a wild trailer for the upcoming Marvel film “Venom.”
In a video that dropped on YouTube Thursday, the 40-year-old actor’s character, Eddie Brock, wakes up inside an MRI machine after he’s undergone some kind of major trauma.
“Everyone’s got their thing. Maybe it’s a breakup, a death, an accident. Whatever it is, you used to be one thing. Now, you’re something else,” Hardy explains in the clip. “We all have our own problems. Our own issues. Our own … demons.”
“One of Marvel’s most enigmatic, complex and badass characters comes to the big screen, starring Academy Award nominated actor Tom Hardy as the lethal protector Venom,” a description released with the video read.
Created in 1988 by Marvel Comics, “Venom” is an “alien symbiote that uses human hosts to survive.” The character first made its big screen appearance in “Spider-Man 3,” when he was played by Topher Grace.
Hardy stars alongside Michelle Williams, Jenny Slate, Woody Harrelson and Riz Ahmed in the movie directed by Ruben Fleischer.
On Wednesday, Sony dropped the artwork for the film that hits theaters October 5.
