While we’re yet to see what the title character’s design will look like in Tom Hardy‘s upcoming Venom movie, we do have quite a bit of leaked set photos and videos that give us an interesting perspective of Eddie Brock. The newest set video is almost identical to the video we were given earlier this month, with a few minor differences.
We already know that the movie most likely won’t be set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but will be based on the popular Lethal Protector storyline. Some have expressed doubt about the film, while others, like the creator of Venom himself, Todd McFarlane, showed optimism – because of Hardy:
“I’ve seen some movies of his where he can bring anger and a wide personality to it. To me, I think Tom Hardy’s going to be as good as whatever Venom looks like. We all know Tom’s going to act. He’s going to do a good job. So now what’s Venom gonna’ look like? It’s an R-rated movie, how “R” are they going to go? To me, that’s the question. Are they going to go a “little bit R”? Venom’s a monster to me, and to me – are they going to make him a monster or are they going to make him a man? Are they going to humanize him? That’s what we gotta’ find out.”
It definitely will be interesting, and it can only become more interesting once we find out who will play Carnage, the character’s confirmed villain. Some have speculated that it could be Woody Harrelson, but nothing has been confirmed as of yet.
Venom is scheduled to hit theaters on October 5th, 2018.
