Hardy stars here as investigative reporter Eddie Brock who is on the trail of Dr. Carlton Drake (Riz Ahmed), head of the Life Foundation, an organization which houses a number of alien symbiotes that they use to perform unsafe scientific experiments on humans.
Tom Hardy plays the character of Eddie Brock who is a journalist by profession and confronts with Riz Ahmed's character about the experiments he is performing. Venom is a villain in the Marvel universe who is the result of the bonding of an alien creature with an investigative reporter called Eddie Brock.
The new "Venom" trailer finally shows fans the goods: Tom Hardy in full monster form. Also, why is Jenny Slate pronouncing symbiote the way that she does?
Yes, there's dialogue in the trailer that points to Hardy's character Eddie Brock's initial attempt to control the Venom symbiote, and "only hurt bad people", but that's not what has Twitter swooning.
Venom is scheduled to release in theaters on October 5th, 2018. "He's one of my favourite characters as well".
As promised, Sony released the first full-length trailer for the movie at CinemaCon on Monday night. With a couple of overhead shots of San Francisco, it's clear most of the action will take place on the West Coast, keeping the anti-hero away from Spider-Man and the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which is largely set in NY. We can't wait for the Venom movie. We get to see a Spider-Man-like origin story in the new trailer.
"The way I see it, we can do whatever we want".
Interestingly, the trailer also gives a glimpse at Hardy's unorthodox performance as he has to talk to an entity that only he can see. Both Venom and Eddie Brock previously appeared in Spider-Man 3.
