Tom Hardy Cast As Lead In Spidey Spin-Off Venom

Tom Hardy To Star In 'Venom' Movie Spin-Off

Sony has ensnared a star and director for its Spider-Man offshoot, Venom. Feeling spurned, the symbiote latches onto Eddie Brock, a journalistic rival of Parker's.

Hardy will play Venom's first-incarnation, Eddie Brock, a journalist who falsely exposes the identity of a serial killer, only to have Spider-Man capture the real criminal.

Venom has been portrayed both as a villain and an anti-hero.

Could this Fox News host be Sean Spicer's replacement?
Officials said Spicer is expected to stay in the White House "but have less exposure", in the words of one official. Politico reported Thursday that President Donald Trump is considering "scaling back" Spicer's public-facing role.


The "Venom" movie will be directed by Ruben Fleischer, who is best known for his work on the horror-comedy film "Zombieland" with production on the movie picking up this summer. Hardy is also set to play the role of Al Capone in "Fonzo", and will reprise his role of Max Rockatansky in "Mad Max: The Wasteland". Following years of on-again, off-again, on-again reports, today the studio took a big step forward: Tom Hardy will take on the lead role of Venom.

Hardy posted a photo of himself in a Venom T-shirt to celebrate the announcement.

A Venom movie has been long in development hell, since the negatively received appearance of the character in Sam Raimi's Spider-Man 3 in 2007. Disgraced and suicidal after his false public accusation, Brock meets the alien symbiote, together becoming Venom and seeking out revenge against Spider-Man. Again, sources have not confirmed the veracity of this. However, it certainly would be an excuse to take Venom to some darker places away from the MCU, much like the highly successful R-rated superhero films recently released by 20th Century Fox with Deadpool and Logan. Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach will produce with Amy Pascal. Still, industry observers were surprised that Sony placed "Venom" on its schedule of upcoming releases, slating it for October 5, 2018.
