Tom Hardy: Venom is not black or white, it is grey

‘Venom’ Is a “Complete Failure” According to Early Social Media Reviews Tom Hardy claims up to 40 minute of the best footage was cut from Venom movie as early reactions don’t paint a pretty picture

Some of the neatest shots in the movie are those where we see Venom fully in the frame.

For now, there's Venom, who seems to exist in a sub-universe all his own; no Spider-Man in sight. Furthermore, the bond between Carnage and Kasady in the comics is stronger than the one between Venom and Brock, with the former referring to themselves as "I" instead of "We". The attempt also kills the symbiote. Other than Eddie Brock, its other notable hosts have included Flash Thompson, Wade Wilson and Peter Parker.

That said, if by chance one developed a misbegotten affection for the Andrew Garfield-Marc Webb "Amazing Spider-Man" movies (which, like this, it's no coincidence that Sony produced largely independently of Marvel), then you might actually like "Venom".

The latest entry (sort of) in the Marvel universe carries a risky tagline: "The world has enough superheroes". Director Ruben Fleischer revealed during 2017's Comic-Con Experience that it takes inspiration from Planet of the Symbiotes (1995) - a five-arc issue where Venom teams up with Spider-Man and Scarlet Spider to stop a global symbiote invasion - and Lethal Protector (1993) - a six-issue limited series where Venom teams up with the web-slinger to take down the Venom Symbiote's offspring.

Too bad the audience has to wait 45 minutes for him to put in a full-bodied appearance in the eponymous "Venom", a picture in the running for the dubious distinction of being perhaps the worst Marvel-derived origin story ever.

Venom is a grittier, more violent and more complicated character than his Marvel brethren.

‘Venom’ Is a “Complete Failure” According to Early Social Media Reviews

Venom is best when its title character is unleashed: doling out cartoonish and stylized action and the practical ability to shape-shift into whatever, whenever, as with a nighttime chase sequence through crowded San Francisco streets featuring Venom on a motorcycle leaping in the air, crashing through obstacles, and making impossible quick turns possible, as Drake's paid goons pursue them. Tom Hardy played Bane in Christopher Nolan's Batman franchise, and he knows how popular Venom is in Spider-Man's storyline, so if they can create a character that people will love, who knows what could happen down the road. Together, they are capable of anything - a terrifying proposition as Venom is fueled by rage. I couldn't agree more, and I'm going to bring it up when the next wave of Marvel characters arrives in the early 2020s. "It's harder to separate it when you're playing characters that are much closer to reality and much closer to yourself".

Venom is an alien who co-habits the body of a human played by Tom Hardy.

Tom Hardy will star in the dual role of journalist Eddie Brock and his super-powered alter-ego, Venom. Eddie Brock is a motorbike-riding news vlogger whose investigative skills consist of snooping in his girlfriend's email and ham-handedly asking pharmaceutical CEO Carlton Drake (Riz Ahmed) if he's killing people in secret drug trials.

Who else is in it?

As originally envisioned by creators Todd McFarlane and David Michelinie, the relationship between Eddie and Venom is a humorous love-hate one, with built-in wisecracks to help leaven the dark goings-on of the comics. It stars Tom Hardy, Riz Ahmed, Michelle Williams, Woody Harrelson, Jenny Slate and Scott Haze.
