Besides the image of Tom Hardy as Venom, the studio also released along with the full video from last year’s panel at Brazil Comic-Con. Read on…
The release date for Venom is less than a year away now, so more images and promotional material is expected to drop soon.
“The aforementioned first official image of Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock features the actor holding a notebook, which upon further investigation, mentions the Life Foundation. This will. serve as a large portion of the movie. It has recently been revealed that Riz Ahmed is portraying Dr. Carlton Drake, the head of the Life Foundation, a group that is trying to replicate Eddie Brock superpowers. As for, the She-Venom star, her name is Michelle Williams, who will be playing Brock’s ex-wife Anne Weying.
In the video, director Ruben Fleischer starts the video from the San Francisco set in Atlanta, Georgia. Contrary to previous reports, it was actually Fleischer who announced that the source material for Venom was taken from the Lethal Protector comic series, not Tom Hardy.”
Tom Hardy took front and center in the video, which was live broadcasting from the set, and premiered the first piece of Venom promotional material, which was an exclusive Brazil Comic-Con t-shirt with Venom’s face over the red “v” logo that has since been released worldwide.
More importantly, Hardy addressed the fans, saying that he will do the best job that he possibly can to bring Eddie Brock to the big screen and do the character justice.
Hardy is a superb actor, so we can’t wait to see his portrayal of Venom. The film is slated for a October 5, 2018 release.
