New details of the latest upcoming Hollywood movie on the much-awaited comic-book antihero – Venom just got released by Sony. The movie is directed by Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland) and stars Tom Hardy playing the role of Venom. Also, the movie has Michelle Williams and Riz Ahmed in the supporting roles. This movie is the part of Sony’s cinematic universe that has Marvel’s supporting character – Spider-Man.
Unlikely to the expectation of the fans who were expecting the R rating, Sony has decided to go with the PG-13 rating.
What does this mean?
This means that the latest Hollywood movie – Venom will have limited Violence and not what the fans has seen in the comic book.
Another important detail released by Sony is the movie run time which will be 1 hour 52 minutes.
Further, a short synopsis has also been revealed which states, “One of Marvel’s most enigmatic, complex and badass characters comes to the big screen, starring Academy Award-nominated actor Tom Hardy as the lethal protector Venom.”
According to the comic book, Venom is an antihero, a creature who is a combo of a man called Eddie Brock and a parasitic entity, symbiote. When both these different personalities come together, they form coalesce and hence become the Venom. As pet the comic this symbiote came in contact with Eddie after it left Peter Parker’s body. But now, the universe has no Peter Parker aka Spider-Man in it, hence, the origin of the story in this movie is going to be slightly different. With Tom Hardy in the movie, much is expected as well as indicated.
Speaking of more movies, Tom Hardy has already spilled the bean over the possibilities of its sequels as it turns out that he has been signed up for three films. At the time when he was speaking to Total Film Magazine last month, he said, “I’m open to whatever you want to do with it. We’ve signed up for three of them. So it’s very much an open case. We’ll see what people’s responses are to it,”
He further added by saying, “I think it’s an awesome character. I love playing both of them. It’s an amuse-bouche, and for Sony, it’s the Venom-verse launched in isolation, as it were,”
Venom will hit theaters on October 5, 2018.
