A new behind-the-scenes photo has surfaced from the set of Venom, which might offer a glimpse at Tom Hardy’s new suit.
The picture, which surfaced on Instagram, features Hardy in shadow and shows him wearing some sort-of military gear, which is a bit different than the traditional look of the symbiote.
Check it out for yourself in the picture below:
It was previously reported that the film will be using performance capture in order to bring some of the characters to life, so it is possible this look is something that we could see prior to Venom wearing something more in line with the traditional suit.
What do you think of the new look? Sound off in the comments below!
Venom will be the first film in Sony’s Marvel universe and will be followed by Silver and Black. Sony’s films are separate to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which means it’s highly unlikely that Tom Hardy’s Eddie Brock will be swinging alongside Spider-Man anytime soon.
The film is expected to be an origin film, with the two principal characters being Venom and Carnage. The film is being directed by Ruben Fleisher and also stars Riz Ahmed and Michelle Williams.
Venom hits theatres on October 5, 2018.
6 R-Rated Comic Book Movies Audiences Deserve
Logan and Deadpool have shown studios that R-Rated superhero movies can succeed. Sure, Watchmen and 300 kind of proved that same point in 2009, but now both Marvel and DC have said R-Rated movies are a possibility. Audiences are tired of so many comic book movies featuring similar plots, so opening more projects to the potential of being R-Rated makes it possible that different, mature stories can be told.
Some characters, like Superman and Spider-Man, should never receive the R-Rated treatment. If a character is defined by a sense of hope or optimism instead of a dark, gritty core that grounds all their actions, then a R-Rated movie likely won’t work.
