We can do whatever we want, Eddie. Do we have a deal? Indeed, Tom Hardy’s Eddie Brock and the alien symbiote in Venom are capable of many things when they put their minds together. Quite literally, in fact. And with the Venom film now in theaters, moviegoers and audiences have an opportunity to see Eddie Brock put his journalistic skills to the test. But even though Brock may be a villain to some, to others he’s merely an anti-hero. If you want to go the Lethal Protector route, he can even be an outright hero. And this is on and off the screen, too.
Why do I say off screen? Because the Venom lead is proving himself to be a hero in other ways. If there’s one thing that brings joy to children, particularly those who are bedridden, it’s an opportunity to meet their heroes. And for a very long time, we’ve seen actors- not just in comic book films- go the extra distance to take a few hours out of their day to bring joy to a child’s life by paying them a visit. It may not mean much to some, but to many others, it’s an important gesture and shows that the actors and people paying these visits are the real heroes. Tom Hardy is another example of that.
So why do I say this? Because Tom Hardy himself recently paid a visit to the Children’s Hospital in Los Angeles, and the moment was shared by the hospital’s Twitter handle with the caption: “Big thanks to Tom Hardy for coming along with @VenomMovie entertaining our kids and letting them pull out their best superhero moves on you!” Here, have a look at the Venom star brightening up one child’s day in the photo below:
The adorableness is too much to handle!
