Tom Hardy Is Sony’s Venom

Xben3000 here with some interesting movie news today! Sony has announced that Tom Hardy has been cast to play Eddie Brock (Venom) in the upcoming Venom film that is being produced for Sony’s Marvel Universe. We also know that the film will be released October 5, 2018 with production starting this fall. I honestly was not expecting any casting news anytime soon with this film, but it seems Sony is dead set on making this a reality.

 

I mean props to them, but Venom is not my favorite Spider-Man villain. I’m interested in seeing how they go about doing this film. I am guessing we will see things from Eddie’s perspective, but will this lead to him fighting Spider-Man at the end of the film, or would it be something else. With this film not being in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, will people be less inclined to check it out?

Like always let us know what you think. I’m still XBen3000 and I’m out!
