Tom Hardy is Venom Plus Our Reaction

Tom Hardy is Venom Plus Our Reaction

R-Rated Film Coming 2018

By Alex Burns

Sony Pictures have revealed that actor Tom Hardy will star as Eddie Brock in their upcoming Venom movie! The R-Rated supervillain film is set for release on October 5th, 2018 and the studio have also signed director, Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland, Gangster Squad) to helm the project. Check out the official reveal tweet below.

Hardy is no stranger to superhero films having played the villainous Bane in director, Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises and we are certainly intrigued to see the actor tackle the savage and morally conflicted Venom character.

The Venom film will not be connected to the current Spider-Man films in development with Tom Holland in the role of Peter Parker. Those Marvel & Sony movies that are set within the MCU along with the likes of Iron Man and Thor are being kept separate from Sony's standalone film projects set within their own Sony Marvel Universe on-screen. It remains to be seen how much this confusion of Spider-Man characters on-screen affects the quality and audience reception of films like Venom.
