Tom Hardy Set To Play VENOM
We’re as surprised as you. It was announced that a Venom would be getting his own movie a while back and since rumors have been circling about a possible R-Rating and possible directors but we have yet to hear anything concrete until today. It was just announced that Ruben Fleischer, director of Zombieland, is set to direct and the title character will be played by none other than Tom Hardy!
It was just reported by Deadline that Hardy would be stepping back into comic book territory. Take a look at the official report!
Venom is from Sony’s Marvel Universe and is not a spinoff but the first movie after Spider-Man from its Marvel Universe of characters. Hardy’s Eddie Brock is able to converse and have a relationship with the symbiote, which culminates to him becoming Venom. In the Marvel Comics universe, Venom has appeared alongside Spider-Man, Iron Man, Deadpool, Hulk, and many other Marvel Comics characters.
This is insane! I would have never in a million years guessed this casting but they must be doing something right if they were able to get an actor of Hardy’s caliber not only to sign on but to play the title character. This film is set to release on October 5, 2018! Are you excited for this or did Spider-Man 3 burn you too badly?
