Tom Hardy To Play Venom, Ruben Fleischer To Direct

Hardy is jumping from the DC to Marvel Universe after playing the villain Bane in 2012's The Dark Knight Rises.

Apparently, Hardy is a big fan of the character and even posed for a photo wearing a Venom T-shirt.

With Hardy, it goes without saying though that our interest levels in this Venom movie have just taken a giant NY skyline swing to well and truly. intrigued!

Venom will hail from Sony's Marvel Universe of characters and will NOT be a spinoff of the current Marvel Cinematic Universe wherein Sony allows Spider-Man to be played by Tom Holland.




Sony Pictures also has a director on board for the Venom movie, with Zombieland director Ruben Fleischer set to take the reigns. Technicalities, everyone! We will see Oscar nominated Hardy's Eddie Brock have a relationship with the symbiote, which will then see him turning into Venom.

Marvel's "Spider-Man: Homecoming" is set for release July 7.

Sony Pictures is moving forward with their Venom film. When Spider-Man's costume was damaged in a fight, he discovered a odd black orb that spread over his body and gave him a new costume. Rosenberg's credits include Con Air and Kangaroo Jack while Pinkner previously worked on The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Disgraced and suicidal after his false public accusation, Brock meets the alien symbiote, together becoming Venom and seeking out revenge against Spider-Man. Everyone's favorite symbiote anti-hero, Venom, will be swinging into theaters sooner than expected on October 5, 2018, and now Tom Hardy is confirmed to be playing the one known to speak in the pural first-person while slobbering about brains and some such. What does a Venom movie without Spider-Man look like?

Venom was first created by writer David Michelinie and artists Todd McFarlane and Mike Zeck in 1988, and quickly became one of the most popular characters in the Marvel Comics universe.
