Amid the myriad of superhero films coming out this year, there are handful of projects that we're eager to see. These include Black Panther, Deadpool 2 and the Venom spin-off film. We've reviewed Black Panther, which delivered the goods, and a recent trailer for Deadpool 2 looks highly promising. 

How did the recent Venom teaser trailer fare?

Well to put it bluntly, it looks like every other sci-fi action movie where an experiment goes wrong. As such, we're only given a brief glimpse of the Venom symbiote encased in a metal box. Apart from a scene in which Tom Hardy (The Revenant, Dark Knight Rises), who plays Eddie Brock, writhes around inside an MRI machine, seemingly being taken over by the symbiote, there isn't much else to speak of. 

Needless to say, the lack of actual Venom in the teaser trailer has left some fans disappointed, with the official video garnering 15k dislikes at the time of writing. To be fair though, given how many other superhero film trailers leave little to the imagination, such as Dawn of Justice, hopefully Venom is leaving the best bits for the cinema. 

Hit play on the trailer below and see whether Venom piques your interest.
