It’s one of our most anticipated films of 2018, and Ruben Fleischer’s Venom is a seriously intriguing film, especially with its hard R rating and the presence of Tom Hardy in the dual roles of Eddie Brock and Venom.
Both Hardy and Fleischer recently opened up about the new film in a special video appearance and you can check out all the details from this below:
While both Hardy and Fleischer are keeping their cards close to the chest in terms of plotting, Fleischer did break the news that this film is inspired by cult classic stories ‘Lethal Protector’ and ‘Planet of the Symbiotes’. While the film will undoubtedly follow it’s own path, and of course Fleischer and Hardy will bring their own ideas to the table, these series set up Venom as an anti-hero and saw him fighting scientifically created symbiotes. It’s an exciting prospect and I can’t wait to see more!
We also got our first look at Tom Hardy in the role of Eddie Brock which finds him cutting a rugged and brooding figure.
Hardy also took centre screen and promised fans that they’ll be getting something special with Venom. “I just wanted to say that I give you my word of honour that I’m going to do everything I can to deliver the best Venom that I can possibly muster,” said Hardy.
With the promise of badass action, outlandish humour, and Tom Hardy, along with an intriguing narrative and a stylized approach to filming, Venom is definitely going to be an exciting time at the movies this year!
