Tom Hardy Gets Bloody And Bruised In Brutal Venom Fight Scene


Since Sony’s Venom began production back in October, a steady stream of pics from the set have leaked out. The latest bunch arrived online today and though not terribly revealing, they showcase Tom Hardy’s Eddie Brock shooting what looks to be a pretty brutal fight.

There’s actually quite a bit here, as we’ve got a huge gallery of photos along with two videos, all taken from the same scene. The exact context of what’s going on isn’t known, but what we can confirm is that Hardy is squaring off against one of the film’s villains, played by Scott Haze. Some fans are speculating that Haze may actually be portraying Carnage, but we imagine the studio would be aiming for an A-lister when it comes to that role. Then again, you never know.

Regardless, here are those photos:

If you’re disappointed that Hardy isn’t in the classic black suit in these shots, then you should know that the big reveal of what the movie’s version of the symbiote supervillain looks like won’t occur for a while yet. After all, it’s been confirmed that Venom will be an entirely CGI creation, so don’t expect to see the creature until, say, the first teaser trailer drops sometime next year.

However, we can still gather something about the approach to the film from these photos. As we mentioned above, this is definitely an action-based scene. From Hardy’s casual wear though, rather than the motion capture suit used for CGI characters, it’s clear that this sequence only features Eddie Brock and not his alter-ego. This suggests that a lot of the movie will be driven by Brock’s character, perhaps with Venom only being used sparingly.

Chalk that up as speculation for now, but here are those aforementioned videos:

Angled to be ground zero of Sony’s Spider-Man universe, one that exists as an adjunct to the massively popular MCU, Venom is due to get the ball rolling on October 5th, 2018. Riz Ahmed, Jenny Slate and Manchester By the Sea actress Michelle Williams also star, with the latter seemingly poised to take point as Anne Weying (She-Venom?). Looking further afield, Sony is said to be plotting a separate spinoff based on cult favorite Morbius, the Living Vampire, as well.
