Here's Your First Look At Tom Hardy As Venom

Sony has shared an official photo from the film with IGN, showing Tom Hardy in his role as Eddie Brock.

The new Venom movie has already set expectations pretty high, with Tom Hardy promising to "deliver the best Venom that I can possibly muster".

The film hits theaters on October 5th. The pages include questions like "So how exactly does the Life Foundation go about testing its pharmaceuticals?" and "What about the allegations your empire is built on?". Hard to tell, but it does look like the film will follow Brock's origins to becoming Venom closely.

After Venom crosses paths with one of their clients, The Life Foundations' CEO, Carlton Drake, decides to have Venom captured and uses his DNA to create five more symbiotes.

Sony Pictures' Venom is apparently moving right along in production, despite the fact that it's neither a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe nor connected to Sony's current Spider-Man franchise. During 2017's Sao Paulo's Comic Con Experience, Ruben Fleischer and Tom Hardy treated fans with a teaser video that offered interesting info on the film. (And in keeping with the setting of the Lethal Protector storyline, the Venom movie is also set in San Francisco.) Planet of the Symbiotes also depicted Venom as a protagonist, this time defending Earth against an army of invading alien symbiotes.

It looks like Brock, in his job as a reporter, is pressing The Life Foundation on its shady dealings.

The question is though, will fans get to see the five symbiotes in the Venom movie, or will they have to wait for Scream, Agony, Phage, Riot, and Lasher to appear in the film's sequel?

We're assuming that second-to-last word is either "killing" or "hurting" but in any case the implication is clear: The Life Foundation's experiments yield tragic results.
