Tom Hardy’s Venom Gets Classic Spider Symbol In New Image

Tom Hardy’s Venom gets the iconic spider chest symbol in a stunning piece of fan art inspired by the character’s first cinematic solo outing.

Sony launched its Universe of Marvel Characters with a live-action Venom movie starring Tom Hardy as the eponymous anti-hero. However, Spider-Man’s inclusion in the Marvel Cinematic Universe meant Tom Hardy’s Venom had to develop a new origin story for the titular character that was unrelated to the wall-crawler.

As a result, Tom Hardy’s Venom did not have the classic white spider symbol inherited from the symbiote’s time being hosted by Spider-Man. Now, a digital artist has reimagined Tom Hardy’s Venom with the spider symbol that many fans are hoping to see in future films.

Here’s what Tom Hardy’s Venom could look like with the white spider symbol for the big screen.

Tom Hardy is set to reprise his role as Eddie Brock in the yet-to-be titled Venom sequel. Andy Serkis is directing Venom 2 from a script by Kelly Marcel, with Tom Hardy’s co-stars set to include returning actors Michelle Williams and Woody Harrelson. It is widely believed Sony intends to release Tom Hardy’s Venom 2 on October 2, 2020, a date the studio is currently holding for an untitled Marvel project.

The first Venom movie follows Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock as he attempts to revive his journalism career by investigating the Life Foundation only to come into contact with an alien symbiote that bonds with him, granting him powers and transforming him into the titular anti-hero. It’s the second iteration of Venom seen on the big screen as Topher Grace played the character in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 3.

Here’s the official synopsis for Tom Hardy’s Venom:

The evolution story of Marvel’s most enigmatic, complex and badass character – Venom! Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy) is a broken man after he loses everything including his job and fiancée. Just when his life is at its lowest, he becomes host to an alien symbiote which results in extraordinary superpowers – transforming him into Venom. Will these powers be enough for this new lethal protector to defeat great evil forces, especially against the far stronger and more weaponized symbiote rival, Riot?

Directed by Ruben Fleischer from a script written by Jeff Pinkner & Scott Rosenberg and Kelly Marcel, Venom stars Tom Hardy, Michelle Williams, Riz Ahmed, Scott Haze, Reid Scott, Jenny Slate, Ron Cephas Jones, and Woody Harrelson.

Venom is now available on Digital HD, 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack, Blu-ray Combo Pack, and DVD. Stay tuned for the latest news on Tom Hardy and the Venom sequel!
