The producer of Venom, Matthew Tolmach has gotten a whole lot of praise for Tom Hardy’s performance ( Eddie Brock) in an upcoming movie. This is what he said about the movie:
“We’re making a Venom movie, is what I’m going to say to you,” Tolmach declared to MTV News at the red-carpet premiere of Jumanji. “A Venom movie, with Tom Hardy, and I think you will be very pleased.”
When he had been asked if Tom Holland would be in Venom, he said, “We’re making a Venom movie … and I’m excited for people to explore it, and find out what that is.”
Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios had a pretty tough time while deciding how Venom would fit into larger plans for Spider-Man. Holland’s Spider Man now appears in the MCU. Amy Pascal had stated that Spider-Man: Homecoming is in the same one as Venom and then Kevin Feige clarified that Spider-Man is a Sony-controlled superhero and exists in MCU.
Tolmach wanted to discuss what Hardy will bring to Eddie Brock:
“Tom, it’s like a master class watching him act every day, and he’s such a risk-taker,” he said.
“And he loved this character from the day that we first met with him. My partner, Avid Arad, and I, we found someone who just believes in this character entirely, and yet every day pushes it to a place that us mere mortals would never expect it to go.”
Helmed by Ruben Fleischer, Venom stars Tom Hardy, Jenny Slate, Riz Ahmed and Michelle Williams. The movie will release on Oct. 5, 2018.
