The Marvel-based movie is set to hit theaters on October 5, 2018, in the UK and the USA and both countries get it at the same time!
Venom is a wildly popular comic book character who briefly appeared in the 2007 film Spider-Man 3, with Topher Grace playing the villain. Physically speaking, Venom in his comic role as a black spider-monster still has his giant tongue and massive fangs.
Shocking the fans on this separate story as directed by Ruben Fleischer, the movie is to feature Mad Max: Fury Road and The Dark Knight Rises star Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock, a journalist who becomes the host of a powerful, symbiotic alien that gives him superhuman abilities.
As envisioned by Director Ruben Fleischer, the movie was inspired by the comic book quote: “You’re Eddie Brock. I’m the symbiote. Together we are Venom.”
He also said at Entertainment Weekly that “Usually a human gets imbued with powers or an alien comes from outer space and has to figure out how to live on our Earth, but this is really about a relationship between two people who have to work together to create this hybrid symbiotic relationship.”
In this movie, Eddie Brock is a human, and Venom is what’s known as a symbiote.
Along with him are the movie’s supporting cast members including Michelle Williams, Riz Ahmed, Jenny Slate, and Woody Harrelson.
The cast’s characters like Michelle Williams stars as Anne Weying in the movie which is a local attorney and Eddie’s girlfriend; Riz Ahmed plays Carlton Drake as the mad inventor and genius of The Life Foundation.
Together with Jenny Slate playing Dr. Skirth and Woody Harrelson who is said to appear only for a moment will be starring as a villain named Carnage who is speculated by most fans to have a much more significant role in Venom 2.
Also, its movie track is performed by American rapper Eminem who recently dropped a surprise album for the movie, Venom. So don’t miss your chance to watch this amazing story which will be out on Friday, October 5th!
