Check out the new teaser poster for Sony’s Spider-Verse Kick-Off Film, VENOM, starring Tom Hardy

2018 is definitely looking to be a banner year for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with the upcoming release of Black Panther and, of course, Avengers: Infinity War. But don’t forget, the MCU’s resident Spider-Man, Tom Holland, is also in a shared custody pattern with Sony and this fall, Sony kicks off its own MCU adjacent Spider-Verse with VENOM starring Tom Hardy.

That being said, here’s the first teaser poster for Venom, all 90’s comic book eyes and font. It’s definitely reaching for that fanbase that loved the Venom comics like Lethal Protector and with Marvel anti-heroes like Deadpool being all the rage, maybe Venom will hit that sweet symbiote spot. Here’s the poster and Venom hits theaters October 5th
