Sony released a teaser trailer for Venom this morning and fans were quick to notice a major part of the trailer was missing, Venom, how do you make a trailer even a teaser without teasing the symbiote anti-hero? That’s the question many fans were left wondering and one that Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld fully agreed with. Check out his tweets below:
Sony, stop calling bloggers and expressing your dissatisfaction that they are reflecting the truth. You ran that teaser that wasn’t ready for prime time! Look in the mirror.

And even when some fans tried to defend Sony’s decision to release the trailer now he had no issue disagreeing with them:
It was ready. The internet has just become about instant gratification now. They feel a desire to see something flashy. Worst of all is they’ll all still go opening weekend.

Rob Liefeld also insinuated that Sony has been contacting website over the negative coverage, we’re not 100% positive about that one. We left our coverage as unbiased as possible because we wanted to leave the fans open to discuss it, but once most people saw it we agreed with the fans that the trailer was put up prematurely. We understand the process behind movies and were thinking that the final CGI and post-edits to make a good trailer or teaser wouldn’t be ready until maybe March or April so we were generally surprised and confused as to why Sony chose to release the teaser so early especially after production just wrapped. As far as an Eddie Brock heavy teaser is concerned, the studio might have been better off showing half as much footage with a tease of the symbiote, not a full-blown shot of Venom, but a tease.
