Next week’s Black Panther from Marvel Studios is already looking like it will be an enormous hit, and every other is hoping to get their trailers in front of the millions of eyes that will be seeing that movie. The latest superhero movie to give us an early teaser is Sony Pictures’ , starring and directed by Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland).

The teaser trailer, which you can see below, doesn’t show anything of Venom itself, maybe because it will involve a lot of CG, and Fleischer is probably still in post.

The film co-stars Michelle Williams (who you can briefly see in the teaser), Woody Harrelson, Jenny Slate, Riz Ahmed, and it’s rumored that Tom Holland might appear as either Peter Parker or Spider-Man, but that’s unconfirmed.

Venom is being released just in time for the character’s 30th anniversary, as Venom first appeared as a Spider-Man villain in The Amazing Spider-Man #300, being an alien symbiote that attaches itself to Daily Bugle reporter Eddie Brock. The character previously appeared in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 3, played by Topher Grace, but the presumably R-rated Venom should be a much better representation of the character.

It’s written by Kelly Marcel, Jeff Pinkner and Scott Rosenberg (the latter two also co-wrote Jumanji) and produced by Avi Arad, Matt Tolmach and Amy Pascal.

Venom will be released by Sony Pictures on Oct. 5.
