  • Tom Hardy to star as Venom in new Spiderman villain spin-off movie

THR's report indicates that Sony is hoping that Venom will reboot (or, at the very least, revive) their Spider-Man universe back to greatness.

Clearly, the studio are not wasting time and are now finalising negotiations with Tom Hardy and Ruben Fleischer who is directing it. In the comics, the journalist Eddie Brock becomes Venom after bonding with an alien symbiote, which was rejected by its previous host, Spider-Man.

Sony announced Friday that Hardy will play Venom/Eddie Brock in its upcoming "Venom" movie.

We don't know much about Sony's plans for the project just yet, but it will be R-rated, which is encouraging to hear and will undoubtedly make a bold statement of intent for the studio's own Marvel universe. The script was written by Scott Rosenberg (Gone in 60 Seconds) and Jeff Pinkner (The Amazing Spider-Man 2), though any more plot details have yet to be revealed. Hopefully this project will perform better than Sony's Spider-Man projects over the past several years. It's set to hit theaters October 5th, 2018. With Avi Arad, Amy Pascal and Matt Tolmach serving as producers. The character was previously portrayed by Topher Grace in Spider-Man: 3, directed by Sam Rami. In addition to appearing in the comics with Spider-Man, Venom has also been with Iron Man, Deadpool, Hulk, and many more Marvel characters.

British actor Tom Hardy, who played Bane in The Dark Knight Rises, has landed another villainous role in a big-screen, comic-book adaptation. So, you can only imagine my delight when I learned that Hardy will star in the Venom movie, with Zombieland's Ruben Fleischer directing.

Fans have longed for a solo Venom film and Sony seems to be listening, making it a top priority with a 2018 release. Production won't begin until this fall, and Sony Pictures will most likely reveal most of the cast-list at that time. Anyway, you can see Hardy showing off his fandom above.
