Tom Hardy Is Venom in Sony's Spider-Man Spin-Off

Tom Hardy Cast As Lead In Spidey Spin-Off Venom
Tom Hardy played Bane in WB's The Dark Knight, and ever since then has been reportedly offered numerous super hero roles.
Sony has ensnared a star and director for its Spider-Man offshoot, Venom. The film will be directed by Ruben Fleischer, whose credits include Zombieland and, most recently, episodes of the Drew Barrymore comedy Santa Clarita Diet.
A Venom movie has been long in development hell, since the negatively received appearance of the character in Sam Raimi's Spider-Man 3 in 2007.
Hardy is said to be a big fan of Venom, which is likely why he was so quick to sign on for the role; Sony even posted a photo of him in a Venom t-shirt to announce the news on Twitter. This is surprising news since we're still a good two months before Spider-Man: Homecoming hits theaters, but maybe Sony's standalone Marvel universe is taking a cue from DCEU in the announcement business.
Tom Hardy has had quite a bust schedule these past few years, his film "Dunkirk" is set to release this summer. A former writer for the Daily Globe newspaper in the comics, his career was destroyed after he published a series of stories debunked by Spider-Man. Venom is a villain that was built very slowly in the comics, becoming with tragic and pure evil as time went on and Spider-Man repeatedly saved Brock from its clutches, or the alien slipped away to come again some other day.
For those who don't know, Venom is one of the most popular villains/antiheroes in Marvel comics. "If the Sony-based Marvel universe starts casting actors and actresses of this caliber and on this level and with this kind of reputation, you are literally building on the backs of these actors and actresses a really strong foundation".
Venom is set for release in October of 2018 and we will have all the up to date information here!
Scott Rosenberg and Jeff Pinkner wrote a script for 'Venom'. The studio also has plans to develop a Silver Sable and Black Cat movie from Spider-Man's roster of characters.
