It’s a genuinely odd thing to see a short synopsis of the origin of Venom without Spider-Man anywhere around, but that’s what we see in the freshly released trailer for the Venom film:

Except for Spider-Man, the classic elements are mostly there, though Eddie Brock is probably a bit more likable than in his debut in the comics. Multiple symbiotes, to which we can probably apply the Chekhov’s Gun principle. As for Spidey… maybe they’re holding something in reserve for the actual film?
Oh, and least we forget:
Ah, inter-studio cooperation. It’s a good thing.
