Watch the Venom trailer below to witness Hardy's epic transformation from being reporter Eddie Brock to Venom symbiote.
Ahmed plays the character of Dr. Carlton Drake, whose scientific experiment turns people into some kind of monster aka symbiote.
Williams, who plays Eddie Brock's love interest in the movie, explained that she always wanted to do a superhero movie. "I happen to love superhero movies and I wanted to do one whether you believe or not; it wasn't right until now and I didn't want to play a damsel in distress," said Williams.
Actor Hardy will be joined by the likes of actors Woody Harrelson, Riz Ahmed, and Jenny Slate.
The Venom symbiote already appeared in many Spider-Man comics since its inception in 1988. Since then, Eddie Brock aka Venom has appeared alongside Spider-Man, Deadpool, Hulk, Iron Man and other superheroes.
Venom is set for release in the UK and the US on October 5.
