Reactions are a bit mixed in regards to "Venom's" latest trailer, but former "Spider-Man" trilogy alum Elizabeth Banks threw some brutal shade at Tom Hardy's character.
Tom Hardy's stand-alone saga "Venom" is inspiring a very mixed reaction from fans — save for universal objection to the film's pronunciation of a key term.
A backlash is brewing after the initial preview, because it doesn't show Tom Hardy's alien-powered antihero in action.
Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach, stewards of the Spider-Man properties, are producing and overseeing the new film. Now that Sony has set Spider-Man on its rebooted path, the studio is setting its sights on other Spider-Man franchises. Sony has tapped Dante Harper to pen a script for Venom, something that is being envisioned as a franchise apart from and unrelated to the upcoming Spider-Man movie in the works with actor Tom Holland.
