Sony Pictures has just debuted another awesome new photo from their upcoming Tom Hardy-starrer, Venom, this time featuring the titular antihero getting ready to rip someone’s head clean off their body.
One of the most talked about scenes coming out of Comic-Con was a brutal shot of Venom (Tom Hardy) devouring a thug’s head and while the recent trailer also featured the same scene as its tag, it’s believed to be a slightly abbreviated version of what was shown to the SDCC audience, meaning there’s still a lot more wickedness to come when the Spider-Man spinoff roars into theaters this October.
Entertainment Weekly has shared a cool new still from the Ruben Fleischer-directed film, featuring the titular antihero looming large over an evildoer. They also caught up with Hardy, who offered some more insight
on the dynamic between Eddie Brock and the symbiote that’s using his body as a host.
“They’re a bit lost in this world, and finding each other and negotiating an ethical framework is perhaps a gift and a burden for the two of them. They bring out the very best and the very worst in each other.”
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.
