The titular character of ‘Venom’ doesn’t seem to just be in danger in the plot of the film he’s set to appear in, the actor playing the role also seems to have met danger as Tom Hardy injured himself on set.
In an interview with Esquire, the publication described the actor as physically worn down and visibly wearing a knee wound. When asked about it Hardy had this to say:
“At the end of a job, I normally end up on the side of the road, and then carrying the toddler around on my shoulders. Things get in the way of looking after yourself.”
The actor tore his right meniscus on set, but doesn’t remember exactly how it happened. This falls in line with his reputation of dedicating himself to the roles he plays.

Plot details on the film are currently under wraps, though director Ruben Fleischer has previously stated that the film will be based on the Lethal Protector and Planet of the Symbiotes comic book runs. Whether or not Spider-Man – who played a significant role in both stories – will make an appearance remains unclear.
Directed by Ruben Fleischer, Venom stars Tom Hardy, Michelle Williams, Riz Ahmed, Jenny Slate, Scott Haze and Woody Harrelson.
Venom will be released in theaters on October 5, 2018. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for the latest news on Venom and Sony’s Spider-Man Universe as we learn it.
