VENOM Is Grinning From Ear To Ear In These Two Wicked New Photos From The Spider-Man Spinoff

With Comic-Con just a week away, we've seen a lot of new photos today and the latest pair comes to us from Sony Pictures' highly-anticipated Venom, which stars Tom Hardy as the titular anti-hero.

Entertainment Weekly, as part of their Comic-Con preview issue, has shared a brand new look at Ruben Fleischer's upcoming Venom, featuring a wicked new photo of the titular antihero played by Academy Award-nominee Tom Hardy.

While speaking with EW, Hardy shared a few intriguing details about what excited him most when signing on for the fan-favorite role. “As far as Marvel characters, I have to say for me, Venom looks the coolest." He admits with a laugh before adding, "That sounds a bit shallow! But I appreciate that he has a kind of brazen swagger and a zero foxtrot attitude.” He continues on to explain how he approached the task of differentiating the down on his luck Eddie Brock from the raging monster within. “It’s a bit like Ren and Stimpy, you know?," he jokes before he delves deeper into his actual mindset, "They have different sounds. 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.” And that beast is unlike any superhero, in the loosest sense of the term, to have ever graced the silver screen with morals that are questionable at best. "There’s that biting-off-heads issue, which is not what you would expect from, say, Captain America taking down a crook.

Fleischer (Zombieland) joins him to promise a comic book movie that will fully embrace the character's violent tendencies as well as the horror he tends to leave in his wake. “We talked a lot about a werewolf and what it is when you get infected or bitten by a werewolf.” He adds, “Usually a human gets imbued with powers or an alien comes from outer space and has to figure out how to live on our Earth. But this is really about a relationship between two people who have to work together to create this hybrid symbiotic relationship.





One of Marvel's most enigmatic, complex and badass characters comes to the big screen, starring Academy Award® nominated actor Tom Hardy as the lethal protector Venom.
