The official Venom movie twitter posted a picture of Tom Hardy two weeks into the filming of Sony’s latest foray in the Spider-Man universe. Hardy, of course, is playing the titular Venom, a.k.a. Eddie Brock, and looks visibly tired in the picture taken in his trailer.
Knowing how seriously Hardy physically trains for his roles, it’s no surprise, though some rumours have said that Venom will be mostly portrayed via motion capture.
We don’t know much about the production, save for the fact that Michelle Williams and Riz Ahmed are rumoured to be plaing She-Venom and Carnage respectively. Director Ruben Fleischer is at the helm for Venom, and the movie is said to be adapted from the comic Venom: Lethal Protector. The miniseries sees Eddie Brock evolve into an antihero of sorts after a move to San Francisco.
In any case, we do know that Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige has been on record saying that Venom won’t be a part of the MCU. Sorry, Sony.
