Production on Sony’s Venom movie is currently underway and is expected to bring an updated take on the iconic Spider-Man villain. However, little is known about Tom Hardy’s version of the anti-hero.
It does seem that we are finally getting a proper, adult take on Venom, though, as Hardy’s trainer for the upcoming movie, Mark Mene, recently revealed a few details about the kind of character fans can expect to see next year.
In a new interview, Mene states that Hardy’s Venom will be a violent beast in the 2018 adaptation, bringing fans closer to a proper comic book adaptation.
“What the world is going to see is one of the darkest, most powerful supervillains that Marvel has ever created. It’s going to be carnage.”

It seems like Sony’s Venom film will be a unique version of the famous anti-hero when compared to Sam Rami’s Spider-Man 3, bringing a darker adaptation to fans. The production has been on-going and this update gives us a more positive outlook for the film.
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 Cinemaitc 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.
