Tom Hardy Talks 'Venom' From Brazil Comic-Con

Tom Hardy Talks 'Venom' From Brazil Comic-Con

And now, we have our first look at the headliner in character. Take a look below to see Tom Hardy as reporter Eddie Brock, sans symbiote, in Sony Picture's Venom.

Earlier rumours for the Venom film indicated that it would be taking inspiration from the "Lethal Protector" story-arc, a comic where the Symbiote took on a more anti-heroic style and fought against the villainous "Life Foundation". The serial-killing "offspring" of Venom is also rumored to play a role in the film. The Ultimate Spider-Man comics did something similar, so it's not unprecedented. "From the day that we first met with him, my partner Avi Arad and I. we found someone who just believed in this character entirely and yet every day pushes it to a place that us mere mortals would never expect it go", he said. These story pieces seem to be pretty good picks on the Studio's parts to bring life to the Venom character. More recently, the Venom symbiote has been moving between hosts, including Mac Gargan (aka The Scorpion) and Peter Parker's old high school rival, Flash Thompson. In that clip (below), director Ruben Fleischer provides some inside information on the two comic-book storylines that are inspiring the film's plot: Lethal Protector, which concerns Brock relocating to San Francisco and battling other Venom symbiotes, and Planet of the Symbiotes, which involves a planetary invasion by not-so-nice symbiotes.

"I just wanted to say that I give you my word of honor that I'm going to do everything that I can to deliver the best Venom that I possibly can muster".
