Tom Hardy to Star in Sony & Marvel's 'Venom'
Ruben Fleischer will direct Hardy as the iconic Spider-Man villain.
After his turn as Bane in Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises, Tom Hardy is returning to the world of superheroes and taking on yet another villainous role in a big screen adaptation — this time for Marvel. Sony Pictures took to Twitter earlier this afternoon to officially announce the long-awaited Spider-Man spinoff, Venom — and Hardy is signed on to star as the titular character. Zombieland director Ruben Fleischer will be at the helm while Hardy will put his own spin on a character that last hit the big screen with Topher Grace in 2007’s Spider-Man 3.
Venom is slated to hit theaters on October 5, 2018.
