Tom Hardy's Favourite Scenes From Venom Aren't In The Movie

Tom Hardy's Favourite Scenes From Venom Aren't In The Movie

Hardy, 41, who has been busy promoting the eagerly anticipated Marvel flick, in which he takes on the role of the lead character, was asked what his favourite moment was to film.

"Not like Mark Wahlberg!", Hardy responded, while actor and rapper Ahmed couldn't get over Wahlberg's 2.30am wake-up.

"Things that aren't in this movie", he replied.

'All of them. Mad puppeteering scenes, dark comedy scenes. And if so, once you've seen it, come back and let us know if the critics were right, or just full of themselves....

The first social-media reactions to the movie poured in Monday night after the film's world premiere, and they paint a mixed picture.

"There are scenes that aren't in this movie".

"Doesn't mean they were any good?" Is that what you are saying? "That they weren't no good?" An atypical film in that time, the super-hero film revolves around an invisible hero and an insane general hunting the formula that makes one invisible.

If you remember Spider-Man 3 for a convoluted plot, overstuffed villains and an emo Peter Parker (Tobey Maguire), I don't blame you.

Directed by Ruben Fleischer, Venom is set for release on October 5. Also appearing in the film is Michelle Williams, marking a surprising foray into superhero fare for the four-time Academy Award-nominated actor.

She recently spoke with The Hollywood Reporter about why she signed up for the action flick after being known for her work on independent dramatic films.

Collider: Venom nearly gets away with its nonsensical plot in the end thanks to that Eddie and Venom bromance, but then you're reminded of the major missed opportunity here.

"In my twenties I wasn't cognisant of retirement, the housing market or college tuition. It doesn't look like a film R-Rated and I suppose the 40 minutes of deleted were just Tom Hardy doing the clown". So, the decision-making is all over the place.

The original symbiote in the comics was "immediately iconic", but Collin describes the big screen version as a "jumbled CG eyesore - one of the most flatly unprepossessing digital creations the superhero craze has yet to cough up". I talk about this a lot in my review but this is a movie that somehow slipped through a wormhole from 2004.

"But we have to launch it and see how people feel about it, and if they don't like it, we'll see, but I don't think they will".
