Variety is reporting that Tom Hardy, who played Bane in Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises, will next play another iconic comic book villain, Venom. The frequent Spider-Man villain is getting his own film next year, which will be directed by Ruben Fleischer, who made Zombieland.

A few months back, Sony surprised movie fans everywhere by putting a Venommovie on their release schedule. Rumors of a film based on the character had been going around for years but, once Spider-Man started being shared with Marvel Studios, they sort of went away.


With Hardy and Fleischer now aboard, Venom will lead what’s expected to be Sony’s own unique sliver of the Marvel universe—one that’ll feature other famous Spider-Man rogues, and may include a Black Cat and Silver Sable film. No one knows if these villain films will crossover, or just tell one-off comic book stories; what is almost certain, however, is that Spider-Man won’t be part of them.


Sony confirmed the news on their Twitter:

Venom is scheduled for release October 5, 2018.



Now this looks really promising. Tom Hardy has screen presence, and did a damn fine job playing Bane. Can't believe he graduated from playing a skinny ass soldier in Band of Brothers to becoming Spidey's arch nemesis.


After this he should totally return in a Mad Max Sequel.
