Earlier this week, it was reported that the upcoming Venom movie wouldn’t feature much Venom. Given the lackluster first trailer that we were shown last month, it wasn’t really that much of a surprise. The film’s star, Tom Hardy, has now taken to Instagram to take a shot at those rumors:
The rumor, first reported by Manabyte, looks to be simply taken from a 4chan post a while back, which wrote (potential spoilers if they do end up being true):
The movie starts with Tom Hardy getting out of prison (Early Parole)
Goes to see his ex-wife
She has moved on and his daughter doesn’t recognize him
Hardy goes to the woods to get drunk and passes out
Space Debris (implied it is part of a classified meteor sampling probe) falls next to where he is passed out
From the wreckage the ‘alien’ (Symbiote) finds hardy and seeps into his skin healing a wound he had
Government comes to investigate fallen debris
A second symbiote attacks a random scientist, bonding with him and they capture a third symbiote
Hardy attempts to escape the woods without being seen but is captured by the government
The symbiote that attacked and bonded with the random scientist ends up killing scientist but never leaves body
They perform a bunch of tests on Hardy (MRI, stress, etc) and during one where they slice into him (after they isolate part of it) the symbiote manifests itself and kills the scientists
Hardy runs through the facility where the symbiote automatically dispatches scientists and guards
At the one point the symbiote forms an outer skin with dozens of extra arms which despatch an entire room of scientists all at once
Hardy escapes the facility by diving into a lake and ends upnin San Francisco
Hardy makes his way back to his wife but the government are waiting for him
Boring car chase where the sybiote protects hardy by forming a shield in front of him and knocking cars into the path of pursuing agents
Hardy is stopped by the main government guy who tells him if he wants to see his wife and child again he will come with them
Hardy goes back to the laboratory
The main government guy reveals they have the third symbiote sample locked up. Afters showing it to hardy his symbiote goes crazy and forms the ‘Venom’ costume
The locked up symbiote breaks free and attached to the main government guy and he and hardy fight each using their symbiote
During the fight Hardy sees his daughter and ex and the symbiote briefly separates
Hardy ends up beating government symbiote guy and he, his wife and daughter escape
As they leave it is revealed that the previously dead scientist (who the second symbiote had bonded with) is not actually dead and wakes up. Cut to black.
You only see the venom costume for about 2 minutes during the final fight
Most of the time it manifests as black veins around his arms/ neck or as large extra arms for moving stuff (sort of like in the anime elfen lied)
I only saw a previs rough cut so who knows what will be changed
Was pretty good despite lack of actual Venom
As stated, earlier in the post, it seems as though those rumors from the initial Manabyte report were just taken from this 4chan post.
We’ll know for sure what the deal is when Venom hits theaters on October 5th.
