Earlier this year, it was announced that Sony had chose to move ahead with a solo franchise for the fan-favourite Spider-Man villain, Venom. Topher Grace played the character in Spider-Man 3 against Tobey Maguire, but less said about that, the better.
It remains to be seen if the new big screen Venom will be a monster with a vendetta against Spider-Man or a troubled guy who battles his bloodthirsty urges to help do the right thing, but in either case, Hardy certainly has the right look.
Sony Pictures has started announcing the cast of Sony's Marvel Universe film "Venom", which is set to release in 2018.
Sony was also careful to note that its Venom movie is not a spinoff, though the character is tightly tied in with Spider-Man and has previously appeared in Sony's Spider-Man films.
Venom is to usher in a host of movies from Sony's Marvel and Spider-Man-based universe of characters.
Deadline is reporting that Tom Hardy will suit up as Venom in Sony's new film, with Gangster Squad director Ruben Fleischer set to helm. The disgraced man comes into contact with the alien Symbiote and they bond together to form the villain Venom while seeking revenge on Peter Parker. However exactly which Spider-Man will be saving the day has yet to be made clear.
Sony has since confirmed via Twitter that Hardy has been secured for the role. After its first reboot of the series foundered, Sony Pictures cut a deal in 2015 to merge Spider-Man with Marvel Studios' massively popular cinematic universe that features the Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy.
The entire project has been put on fast-forward, with a projected release date of 5 Oct 2018, which would make it the tenth superhero movie to be released in that calendar year.
"Hardy's Eddie Brock is able to converse and have a relationship with the symbiote, which culminates to him becoming Venom".
Clearly it's the fanboy in Hardy that has convinced one of Britain's finest actors, firmly in his prime, to take a substance-less villain in a major budget production.
Meanwhile, Scott Rosenberg (Jumanji) and Jeff Pinkner (The Dark Tower) will write the script for Venom, and Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach will produce the movie, along with Amy Pascal.
