In this first teaser, we get a first look at Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock in the upcoming Venom.

There’s no real synopsis as yet, but suffice to say Hardy as Brock encounters some sort of a black gooey alien, who will eventually infect him and turn him into Venom, one of the Spider-Man canon’s most dangerous villains. It also stars Michelle Williams and Riz Ahmed.

Watch the trailer!

Venom is set to ooze into theaters October 5.
