New Image From Venom And What Made Tom Hardy Choose The Role

Venom Tom Hardy Sony Marvel

Hardy says, laughing. "They have different sounds".

When first hearing about Tom Hardy's casting as Venom, I sort of thought that his talents could be put to better use, with a more well-known character, on a bigger stage such as the Marvel Cinematic Universe. "That sounds a bit shallow!"

The first snap gets right up in Venom's grill - it's an up-close shot of the symbiote Tom Hardy plays, dripping in some kind of unidentified goo and barring his many, many saliva-covered teeth for all to see.

Fans have been fawning over the image, and though some are still expressing reservations about a movie focusing on Venom - and won't involve Spider-Man - they are still excited over the comic-accurate appearance of the anti-hero. Before long, Eddie is exposed to a slimy, tar-like alien known as a symbiote, which imbues him with extraordinary powers and takes up residence in his head, rent-free.

Plot details on the film are now under wraps, though director Ruben Fleischer revealed that the film will be based on the Lethal Protector and Planet of the Symbiotes comic book runs. "But this is really about a relationship between two people who have to work together to create this hybrid symbiotic relationship".

"It's a bit like Ren and Stimpy, you know?" I always saw Venom as sounding like a James Brown lounge lizard, and Eddie Brock is kind of..." - he switches to an aw-shucks American accent - "I don't know, an everyday kind of guy. "But he's inherited this massive ego, this beast".

Speaking to EW, Hardy said he thinks Eddie and Venom's relationship is similar to Ren and Stimpy's from the classic animated series.

In all seriousness, Hardy is drawn to the character because of the inherent tragedy in having to fight for ownership of his own body.

"There's a tragic clown element, which I find amusing and is harmonious with some of the work that I like to do".

Arriving in theaters October 5, Venom stars Tom Hardy, Riz Ahmed, Michelle Williams, Jenny Slate, Scott Haze and Reed Scott. However, Dr. Carlton Drake (Riz Ahmed) wants the symbiote for himself and will do anything in his power to get it back. It makes you feel special.
