First Official 'Venom' Image Reveals Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock

Marvel Comics

In the Lethal Protector arc, the story kicks-off with a truce between Eddie Brock and Spider-Man as Hardy's character moves to San Francisco. The effects probably aren't finished yet, so that may be the reason why Sony is holding off on giving us the first look at Venom.

It's clear that the star of Mad Max: Fury Road has a personal connection with Eddie Brock's story and Venom producer Matthew Tolmach has recently been talking about Hardy's intensity and skills as an actor. In addition, Hardy has posted two behind-the-scenes photos from the Venom set on his Instagram page.

The film reportedly draws inspiration from the 1993 Marvel Comics miniseries Venom: Lethal Protector, in which the alien symbiote and its host relocate to the West Coast, where a sinister organization hatches plans to create its own horrific spawns. Fleischer confirmed the storylines while at the Brazil Comic-Con back in December. We have yet to see how their characters will fit into the film.

The Avengers: Infinity War might have every single Infinity Stone and 1,734 superheroes in their favour, but Venom has one thing that film fans want to see, Tom Hardy.

Venom is one of the coolest villains in comics but we've never gotten a good version of him. But the down-on-his-luck investigative journalist who will eventually bond with the suit to become the anti-hero Spider-Man knows all too well.
