Venom movie news, trailers and cast

Venom October 5th, 2018

Tom Hardy's big screen interpretation of DC's musclebound supervillain Bane (pictured below) in Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight Rises has since become one of the most parodied and imitated characters of recent years. Now, after playing iconic roles in Mad Max Fury Road and in Legend, as the notorious Kray twins Ronnie and Reggie, the British actor whose first big-screen break was playing opposite Patrick Stewart in Star Trek Nemesis will once again play one of comic book's popular villains.

Variety reports that Hardy has been confirmed to star as Eddie Brock AKA Venom in the long-awaited movie of the same name, due for release October 5th, 2018. The movie is set to be the first installment in Sony Pictures much publicized Spider-Man Extended Universe, which will likely feature popular characters from the leading Marvel Comics line while sharing continuity with Marvel Studios record-breaking Cinematic Universe, including the forthcoming Spider-Man Homecoming.

Zombieland director Ruben Fleischer will helm the movie, based on a script written by Scott Rosenberg and Jeff Pinker. Former Head of Sony Amy Pascal and long term Spider-Man producers Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach will produce the movie alongside Columbia Pictures' Palak Patel and Eric Fineman.


Let's hope that Sony has learned to appease the rising power of the fans and feature long-time Spider-Man villain Carnage in some capacity, preferably with Jackie Earle Haley cast in the role.

6 Fan responses to Tom Hardy confirmed as Venom!

Bane as Venom. Awesome

The Dark Knight Rises is my favorite movie of all time! Good for Tom Hardy but if this movie is tied to the new Spider-Man then I will have nothing to do with it. We already have 4 great films of Peter Parker in high school then going into college, obviously not Spider-Man 3 that movie is terrible. I am a huge Spider-Man fan, I read the comics but I refuse to see any movie about Peter Parker until he is an adult and either working at Horizon Labs or has his own company, Parker Industries, like in the comics currently. All they are gonna do is tread the same ground and people will say it's better cause it's Marvel studios input but that is bologna sausage. This new Spider-Man ain't my Spider-Man.
