Gritty British actor Tom Hardy has dropped some long awaited plot details on the upcoming 'Venom' movie.
Hardy, best known for his role as Bane in The Dark Knight Rises, Mad Max: Fury Road, The Revenant and the exceptional Peaky Blinders television series, will venture in the cinematic Marvel Universe for the first time, portraying Spiderman's one-time arch nemesis Venom.
"As a pro and as a Dad, I promise to deliver you the best Eddie Brock/Venom I can," Hardy said in a pre-recorded statement, "because I know how important it is to the fans and to the Marvel Universe and to the awesome team that is working super hard to deliver day and night out here in Atlanta right now."
As a bit of a backstory before the film comes out; The Lethal Protector series begins with Venom shifting from New York to San Francisco following a truce with Spiderman, where he sets himself as an antihero, rather than a villain.
However he is quickly tracked down by the Life Foundation who want to use his symbiote to create five spawns of Venom - Agony, Phage, Scream, Riot, Lasher.
Michelle Williams (Blue Valentine, Manchester by the Sea) and Riz Ahmed (Star Wars: Rogue One, The Night Of...) are set to alongside Hardy in Venom which is slated for release October 5, 2018.
