Ready for a new Marvel Universe? Because the Sony Marvel Universe is comin’ at’cha with Venom, the first film of the SMU. Tom Hardy, superhero! Even big indie talent like Michelle Williams is on board! Synopsis!
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.
I’ma say it; the CGI Venom looks…a bit rubbery. Guess that’s the vibe for this flexible symbiote? But the motorcycle scene looks badass. Venom looks like the start of a darker universe than the MCU, and probably a bit more focused on slam-bang action instead of superhero shenanigans. I like shenanigans, but I like dark as well. So let’s hope Hardy and company bring the pain. Venom hits theaters this August.
