Venom Movie Viral Site Lets You Become the Symbiote

Fans of Spider-Man's greatest nemesis now have the chance to experience the otherworldly symbiote for themselves.

The official website for Sony's upcoming Venom solo movie has been updated with a new viral page that allows fans to upload pictures of themselves and see how they would look after being bonded to the symbiote giving protagonist Eddie Brock his hard-hitting powers and grotesque appearance in the film and comics.

The latest trailer for the Marvel adaptation debuted two weeks ago showing Tom Hardy's Eddie Brock investigating suspicious activities at Carlton Drake's Life Foundation only to become accidentally bonded with one of the Foundation's symbiotes. Now forced to share a body with the sinister sentient symbiote, Brock must use his newfound powers to expose Drake's deadly secrets.

This second trailer for the film accrued over 64.3 million views within 24 hours breaking Wonder Woman's previous 24 hour record as fans could finally see Brock's monstrous transformation while the first trailer merely hinted at the symbiote's presence. Since the second trailer's debut, official marketing for the film has adopted the hashtag #WeAreVenom.

Arriving in theaters on October 5, Venom is directed by Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland) and stars Tom Hardy, Riz Ahmed, Michelle Williams, Jenny Slate, Scott Haze, and Reed Scott.
