It’s a not a bad time to be a comic book movie fan. Yesterday the new trailer for Deadpool 2 dropped, and next week Black Panther will be released in theaters. Sony thought this would be a good time to drop the teaser trailer for another hotly anticipated Marvel movie: ‘Venom,’ starring Tom Hardy. The reactions are probably not what they were hoping for…
1. Watch the teaser trailer here and judge for yourself.

2. A lot of people are slightly disappointed with what they saw.

3. Because, well…

4. People are seeing a flop coming…
Venom is gonna bomb in theaters.

5. It’s hard to describe, really.
THE VENOM TRAILER: "There's a guy. And he's on the run. And s… something has happened, and boom dramatic music, and motorcycle, and… mm, lotta, you know, lotta grr, oh no."
ME: "Is there any Venom in it?"
TRAILER: "No, but it's cool, it's — wow, some shit's happening."

That Venom trailer looks like the trailer for a movie about a man whose really anxious about getting an MRI

7. We, however, got an exclusive look at what Tom Hardy looks like as Venom:

8. It is a bit confusing.
*Let’s debut a Venom teaser without showing Venom*

9. He was in the Spider-Man 3 teaser, but not in the one for his own movie.

10. This *may* have something to do with it.
I can't believe we couldn't see Venom, a full CGI creation, in the teaser when they just finished filming two weeks ago so we can complain about about the bad CGI 8 months before release

11. At least people are already looking forward to seeing more Tom Hardy.

12. But really.
If someone doesn't redub all of Venom's lines with Bane dialogue, why even have an internet.

13. Now THAT would be a twist.
It’d be amazing if Venom wasn’t in this movie, and Tom Hardy just played a guy named Rick Venom or something. https://t.co/ZeNfilTqjT

14. Like it or not, it’s still a good week for fans of comic book movies.
First a Deadpool trailer & now Venom. Hot damn, what a week! pic.twitter.com/4YWqQPzPzk

15. At least there’s this.
The new Venom trailer is awful, but at least Tom Hardy has given us a GIF that visually explains what it feels like to try and rationalize with Trump voters. pic.twitter.com/ixlePeyoSI

16. And finally, for some perspective…
Maybe the REAL Venom…
