  • Tom Hardy Venom in the comics Ruben Fleischer

Venom has been one of Marvel's top villains and a Spider-Man fixture since he was introduced in 1988, created by writer David Michelinie and artists Todd McFarlane and Mike Zeck.

Fleischer showcased his ability to bring together dark themes and humor in "Zombieland", and according to sources, Hardy is a huge fan of Venom.

With Spidey himself now in the hands of Disney's Marvel, Sony is looking to expand the Spider-Man #franchise into new territory. Hardy famously played marble-mouthed Batman villain Bane opposite Christian Bale in "The Dark Knight Rises".

Always Dreaming, Classic Empire are neighbors in Preakness
Classic Empire's handlers aren't the only ones eager for another shot at Always Dreaming . "So I think he checks all those boxes". On a sloppy track, he covered the 1 1/4 miles in 2:03.59 to beat Lookin At Lee by 2 3/4 lengths and Battle of Midway by 7 3/4.

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.

First appearing in the comic book series as an alien costume worn by Spider-Man in Marvel's "The Amazing Spider-Man" #252 in 1984, it was several years before the creature left Peter Parker and merged with photographer Eddie Brock, forming the antihero known as Venom. Everyone's favorite symbiote anti-hero, Venom, will be swinging into theaters sooner than expected on October 5, 2018, and now Tom Hardy is confirmed to be playing the one known to speak in the pural first-person while slobbering about brains and some such. Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach, who has worked on the previous Spider-Man films with Sony, will be producing the Venom film alongside Amy Pascal. Sony is rebooting its Marvel-based slate with this summer's Spider-Man: Homecoming and Venom is a key title in its slate. He was played by Topher Grace in Sam Raimi's "Spider-Man 3".

Wanting to continue to strike while the iron is hot, it has just been announced via The Hollywood Reporter that none other than Tom Hardy will be donning the all-black skin-tight suit for the Venom spin-off movie.
