Tom Hardy stars as Eddie Brock, a hard-hitting journalist who’s made a living out of finding juicy stories for the public to eat up. But when his thirst for a story ends up damaging his personal and professional relationships, he winds up bonding with a mysterious alien specimen known as a “symbiote.”
Calling themselves Venom, Eddie and the creature end up in a race against time to stop a full-scale invasion of an army of symbiotes. Other cast members include Michelle Williams as Anne Weying, Riz Ahmed as Carlton Drake AKA Riot, and Reid Scott as Dan Lewis.
Venom plays out like a very weird buddy-cop movie; Eddie is a regular guy who finds himself way over his head, while Venom insists on dragging him along for the ride as he throws people through windows, licks their faces, and occasionally bites their heads.
It was a unique experience seeing Venom and Eddie’s relationship develop. As for the characters themselves, Eddie is a decent guy who goes through some very strange, bizarre events that I don’t think he’d write a story about.
Venom, on the other hand, is where we get most of the movie’s over-the-top moments. He doesn’t take himself too seriously, though we can chalk that up to him being something of an outlier among his species.
One thing that may turn off some Venom fans is that he’s more quippy than they might expect, but he does have some pretty funny lines throughout (“So many snacks, so little time.”). And I give Tom Hardy a bunch of credit for his dual performances as Eddie and Venom.
Edward Thomas Hardy was born on September 15, 1977, in Hammersmith, London; his mother, Elizabeth Anne (Barrett), is an artist and painter, and his father, Chips Hardy, is a writer. He is of English and Irish descent. Hardy was brought up in East Sheen, London, and first studied at Reed’s School.
His education continued at Tower House School, then at Richmond Drama School, and subsequently at the Drama Centre London, along with fellow Oscar nominee Michael Fassbender. After winning a modelling competition at age 21, he had a brief contract with the agency Models One.
Outside of performing, Hardy is the patron for the charity “Flack”, which is an organization to aid the recovery of the homeless in Cambridge. And in 2010, Hardy was named an Ambassador for The Prince’s Trust, which helps disadvantaged youth.
On the recent stage, he starred in the Brett C. Leonard play “The Long Red Road” in early 2010. Written for Hardy and directed by Philip Seymour Hoffman, the play was staged at Chicago’s Goodman Theater. Actor Tom Hardy first stepped into the spotlight after his role in the miniseries Band Of Brothers (2001).
In 2010, Hardy became engaged to fellow English actress Charlotte Riley, whom he starred with in The Take (2009) and Wuthering Heights (2009). After Tom Hardy’s Eddie Brock spent some brief time in the Marvel Cinematic Universe for a Spider-Man: No Way Home post-credits cameo, he returned to Sony’s Spider-Man Universe with knowledge of the wall-crawler.
About venom 3
The CGI isn’t the greatest we’ve ever seen, but it works well for this kind of movie. Venom’s design is mostly faithful to the comics (though there’s no spider emblem), with a big, muscular build, lots of sharp teeth, and that overly-long, slimy tongue.
Venom may not break any new ground in effects or story, but it manages to serve as a good time. It remains to be seen whether Sony can maintain this Spider-Man-less approach going forward, but we’ll see what happens. This film is very good and artistic in my opinion.
It was a super genius idea for Ruben Fleischer to direct a spin-off based on the most famous villain of Spider-Man. Not only did they bring him back as a villain like in Spider-Man 3 but turning him into a superhero.
Is Tom hardy there in venom 3?
Yes, Tom Hardy is to return for Venom 3. Venom 3 starring Tom Hardy is officially in the works as confirmed by Sony at CinemaCon 2022. Following the box office success of Venom: Let There Be Carnage, it seems the studio decided to greenlight the third instalment of the film. Fans can’t wait to watch him again on the sets of venom. Though he is an anti-hero in the movie but is not loved less than a hero by his fans.
