Ever since the announcement that Tom Hardy would be playing Venom in the upcoming solo movie for the character, fans haven’t been sure what to think of the movie. Though it’ll be R-Rated and feature Carnage as the main villain, some fans are disappointed that it won’t be set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Personally, I’m just glad we’re getting a Venom movie and that we’re getting it with a star like Hardy.
Though we’ve had set photos and set videos released, we haven’t actually seen what the character will look like. According to IGN, however, that’s about to change, as we’re apparently getting our first look at Hardy’s Venom this week! The report didn’t give any specifics, but it’s definitely exciting to know.
We don’t know many plot details other than it’ll follow the Lethal Protector storyline – minus Spider-Man. That might be cause to pause, but Venom’s creator, Todd McFarlane, has hope for the movie, because of Hardy:
“It’ll be interesting. 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.”
Venom hits theaters on October 5th.
