Tom Hardy Will Play Venom!

Tom Hardy Will Play Venom!

Tom Hardy gave us a pretty memorable - and quotable - turn as DC Comics villain Bane. The studio announced the casting in a black-and-white image on social media Friday with the actor donning a T-shirt emblazoned with the character's pearly whites. Production on the pic is expected to get underway this fall, with an October 5th, 2018 release date being eyed.

"Hardy's Eddie Brock is able to converse and have a relationship with the symbiote, which culminates to him becoming Venom".

The Venom character appeared in Sam Raimi's Spider-Man 3, although the reception to that portrayal was less than stellar.

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

What do you think of Tom Hardy as Venom? So, clearly there's some animosity there.

Necmi was charged with aggravated assault, while Kheirabaoi was charged with assaulting a police officer. Metropolitan Police Chief Peter Newsham called Tuesday's attack on Washington's Embassy Row "brutal".

The next Spider-Man installment is the highly-anticipated Marvel/Sony project, starring Tom Holland.

Ruben Fleischer, best known for directing "Zombieland", has also been named to direct the film. The studio's next project, Spider-Man: Homecoming, will be released as a joint project between Marvel Studios and Sony.

Venom is considered one of the most iconic villains in Spider-Man history after first being introduced in 1988.

Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach are producing Venom along with Amy Pascal. Scott Rosenberg and Jeff Pinkner have been tapped to write the script. He's acted in big popcorn movies like The Dark Knight Rises and Fury Road, slummed it in the action rom-com This Means War, and garnered critical acclaim from gritty crime dramas like Bronson, Locke, and The Drop. The studio's first step to make that a reality comes through the #Venom film a project that, after, nearly a decade of being in development, is finally moving forward.
