Tom Hardy Will Play Eddie Brock in Sony’s ‘Venom’

No one was expecting it when Sony announced it’s Venom movie, so it makes sense that no one was expecting who will end up starring in it. Its been announced that none other than Tom Hardy will be playing Eddie Brock in the upcoming film.

Venom will be an R-rated film meant to launch a shared universe based around Spider-Man characters (that will somehow not feature Spider-Man). Separate from Marvel’s Cinematic Universe, where the current film Spider-Man resides, it’s expected to be darker — and by all accounts confusing as hell.

Honestly, Hardy is a phenomenal actor, but even his casting isn’t quite enough to get me excited about this project. Maybe I’m wrong — maybe this will end up being phenomenal. With Sony’s current track record though, I’m not giving them good odds.

Venom is scheduled for an October 2018 release.

Trae Dorn

Trae is the tallest of the hosts, and he is certain it’s because he is the oldest. This is (at the very least) why he is the baldest. Trae co-founded Wisconsin’s longest running Anime convention No Brand Con and refuses to apologize for it... which he probably should. Trae also writes the webcomics UnCONventional and The Chronicles of Crosarth, which leads many to ask when the hell he has time to actually do anything anymore. He says he has time because he “does it all quite poorly.”
