First look at Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock in Venom

Sony have been keeping details surrounding the upcoming Venom film very quiet other than releasing a couple of behind the scenes photos, until today! IGN have released an exclusive first look still of Tom Hardy as journalist Eddie Brock, as well as the complete Brazil comic con panel featuring a short behind the scenes look at the set!

Check them both out below!


So we don’t much in the way of the first look image other than deciphering the notes in his book, which goes something along the lines of a foundation company testing its own pharmaceuticals as well as mentioning the ethics they’re empire is built on. It’s all rather cryptic!

But in the footage from the panel director Ruben Fleischer discusses the comic book run on which Venom will be based, “We want to be as true as possible to the comic with our film,” he said. “But our story is primarily based on the Lethal Protector and the Planet of the Symbiotes book.”

Tom Hardy also promises: “I just wanted to say that I give you my word of honor that I’m going to do everything that I can to deliver the best Venom that I possibly can muster.”

So what do you think of the first look? Let us know in the comments below!

Venom is directed by Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland) and is set for release on October 5th 2018
