Tom Hardy Stars In The 'Spider-Man' Venom

But his fanboy giddiness sees him take on one of Marvel's most iconic villains in yet another comic book movie to fulfil the current fad. Ruben Fleischer is an American film director best known for his work on the 2009 comedy horror film, Zombieland.

Hardy also professes fandom for the character, tweeting a shot of himself with a Venom shirt shortly after the exciting announcement. Sony has set a release date for October 5th, 2018 and has slated production to kick off before the end of the year.

Hardy will play Venom's first-incarnation, Eddie Brock, a journalist who falsely exposes the identity of a serial killer, only to have Spider-Man capture the real criminal. The studio's next project, Spider-Man: Homecoming, will be released as a joint project between Marvel Studios and Sony. The script was written by Scott Rosenberg (Gone in 60 Seconds) and Jeff Pinkner (The Amazing Spider-Man 2), though any more plot details have yet to be revealed.

As reported by HollywoodReporter.com, Tom Hardy is set to star as the titular Venom. However exactly which Spider-Man will be saving the day has yet to be made clear. The character derives his powers - and his villainous streak - from a living, symbiotic alien that takes the form of a black costume, imbuing its host with abilities similar to Spider-Man's.

Throughout the history of Marvel Comics, Venom has appeared alongside Spider-Man, Iron Man, Deadpool, Hulk, and other Marvel Comics characters.
