Tom Hardy clarifies what he meant from previous Venom interview

New Venom TV spots reveals a terrible friendship

A veritable mish-mash of unnecessary spin-offs have already been announced, including a nauseating Morbius project fronted by Jared Leto, but there may be scope for Sony to integrate with their Disney counterpart, Marvel Studios. Opens Friday at theatres everywhere. "What I'm saying is that I had a lot of time improvising and a lot of freedom to play with Venom". Given Venom exists in the Marvel Universe (we saw him/it in the equally bad "Spider-Man 3" some 11 years ago), yes.

The life of Eddie Brock, played by Oscar nominee Tom Hardy, seems to be flawless with a celebrity status from his shining career as an investigative journalist. It's a laughable line, but maybe there's something to these recurring themes; after all, endoparasites are often found in feces, and "Venom" stinks like a horrid flush that just won't go down the drain. His take on Eddie Brock is unlike numerous characters he has become known for like his roles in "The Revenant" or 'Mad Max: Fury Road.' He plays Eddie Brock as a charming, down-on-his luck sleuth, who has bit off more than he can chew.

Tom Hardy poses at the 68th Cannes Film Festival in Cannes. But each is forced to decide what side they are on, and what is worth fighting for, when the duo discovers that another symbiote, Riot, has bonded with Drake and intends to turn Earth into a host planet for his species to consume. For those of you wondering if he does enjoy eating brains, well, Venom does get to do such a thing once, but just like the rest of the movie, it's such a bloodless endeavor that one has to wonder what's even the point. But folks, I don't think Sony realizes what they've made here, or if they do, it's something they probably hope nobody will notice.




The story is a Jekyll-and-Hyde tale where Hardy's journalist character tries to keep Venom's bad behaviour under control. "The tone of this movie is all over the place, and it's the inconsistencies ... that are Venom's real problem". Venom doesn't turn up in full until nearly the hour mark and the laughs (the intentional ones that is) really only come in the film's final moments where we get the obligatory Stan Lee cameo. Of the whole cast, it seems that Riz Ahmed and Tom Hardy are having the most fun with this wooden script. Ahmed is channeling his best 90s villain with mad eyes and inflated ego. Furthermore, the bond between Carnage and Kasady in the comics is stronger than the one between Venom and Brock, with the former referring to themselves as "I" instead of "We". This results in action and a story that is somewhat entertaining, but not entirely novel since there are basically two copies of the same character on the screen, both of whom are going through well-telegraphed stereotypical arcs. But Venom, the character, is so intimately connected to Spider-Man that he loses all definition in a world without his opposite number. "So to imagine him being an iconic adversary to Venom in the future is really exciting". You might assume that Anne's utility as a character is to be a romantic interest that Eddie needs to win back, but there is, no joke, a scene that punctuates on a kiss that unquestionably frames Eddie and Venom's reunion as the relationship we are meant to be invested in, and it certainly calls notions of symbiote gender into question in the process, further cementing the text's unintentional queerness.

Hardy was especially excited about playing this particular character. Some fans might end up feeling differently when they catch the film in theaters on October 5, but it sounds like Venom isn't quite the movie that most people were expecting.
