First Look at Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock in VENOM!

Although much has been teased about Marvel’s upcoming Spider-Man spinoff Venom, most of the plot had been left to speculation and has really been kept under wraps.

That is starting to change ahead of the October 5 release of the film, which is still filming. IGN got its hands on a still of Star Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock, Venom by night, in full reporter mode. Even more exciting, they’ve graced us with full videos out of Brazil’s Comic-Con from a December panel where the movie was discussed with Hardy and director Ruben Fleischer.

Said the director: “We want to be as true as possible to the comic with our film. But our story is primarily based on the Lethal Protector and the Planet of the Symbiotes book.”

Hardy is also very clearly much into the Venom project. This is what he had to say: “I just wanted to say that I give you my word of honor that I’m going to do everything that I can to deliver the best Venom that I possibly can muster.”

Riz Ahmed, Michelle Williams, and Jenny Slate also star. Check out the panel clip!
