Tom Hardy brings out Marvel's darker side in new movie 'Venom'

Venom,Riz Ahmed,Jimmy Kimmel

The 41-year-old British actor was being interviewed alongside Venom co-star Riz Ahmed when they were asked to nominate their favourite scene from the new Marvel film, which sees Hardy play an investigative journalist who transforms into a gruesome alter-ego.

Cape Town - Tom Hardy says the film industry is "superhero-movie heavy" after starring in upcoming Marvel release Venom. It was revealed this week that 30-40 minutes were removed, containing some of Hardy's favorite bits. The trailers suggest a tone that blended dark comedy with body horror, which is one hell of a concotion, and the results are seemingly interesting at the very least. "They never made it in".

Venom is due for an October 5 theatrical release. Venom introduces Tom Hardy's Eddie Brock after he's been run out of NY following some sort of journalism controversy and is now living in San Francisco with his own cable news series called "The Eddie Brock Report". I hate to break it to you. And more. And I'm just saying if I didn't get my song and dance routine in it, that's nothing to cry about, but I may have enjoyed that.

"First and foremost I'm a dad", Hardy said. Riz Ahmed and Tom Hardy did an interview together with ComicsExplained. It's been a full day since I've seen it, and honestly, I'm still not sure.

And yet, when the movie works, it's when Hardy is being weird in a amusing way and talking to himself.

I then pointed out to Fleischer that the sight of watching Venom biting someone's head off on-screen and then seeing their decapitated corpse might have been a step too far for viewers, who might then have lost sympathy for the symbiote and Eddie Brock. Part of me wonders if that's going to be how general audiences react, or if they'll buy into what Tom Hardy and Venom are selling.

Collider: Venom nearly gets away with its nonsensical plot in the end thanks to that Eddie and Venom bromance, but then you're reminded of the major missed opportunity here.

In all, it seems that if Sony wants to keep the Venom train a-rollin' - which it apparently does - the studio would be wise to capitalize on what makes Venom enjoyable and ditch the stuff that bogs it down.
