If you’ve ever wondered about Hardy’s approach to crafting these idiosyncratic inflections, the actor has given us a peek inside his “process,” revealing the rather surprising inspirations for his version of Eddie Brock.
It took a while, but finally, we’re meeting Venom. And Tom Hardy wants you to be very afraid.
The first teaser for the Sony film only introduced us to Hardy’s reporter, Eddie Brock, keeping a tight lid on the monster he’d soon turn into...
Who’s got two fingers, a dope-ass bracelet and a notebook? THIS GUY. Sony has unveiled the first official image of Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock in the upcoming Venom movie (which weirdly has no relation to the current Spider-Man universe) and…well, he looks like Tom Hardy. At least he’s easy on the eyes?
In the middle of their profile of Sony, Marvel, and their unique arrangement sharing the character of Spider-Man in both Spider-Man: Homecoming and Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War, The Hollywood Reporter dropped a fairly major detail about the upcoming Venom film that Sony is developing alongside their Spidey franchise: Carnage will appear as a villain in the film.
In news that clearly came from the farthest depths of left field, Tom Hardy has been cast as the lead in Venom, Sony’s upcoming film about the famous Spider-Man villain. That’s not all: Zombieland director Ruben Fleischer will direct the movie, which is reportedly not a spinoff from Spider-Man: Homecoming, but a standalone project of sorts. Oh, and that’s still not all: Sony has shared an official announcement photo featuring Hardy in one of his classic Hardy-selfie poses, sporting a Venom t-shirt — in case you missed the point.
By the sounds of it, War Party could be the title of a fun satire that parodies war movie cliches. Or it could be a black comedy where Tom Hardy plays the owner of a small party supplies store that suffers once the locals start buying their birthday and baby shower decorations on Amazon. But War Party, a new project purchased by Netflix for seven figures, is neither of those things – one can dream! – but a historical film about Navy SEALs.
We all got ourselves into a bit of a tizzy last fall when it looked like Daniel Craig might step down from playing James Bond, or that he was thinking about stepping down, or that he was maybe offered a lot of money to stay, or a number of other rumors that turned out to be unfounded. Many still speculated about who would take his place, which led to countless interviews where it seemed every British actor was getting the question. Recently, when asked whether he’d like to step into 007’s shoes, Tom Hardy had another suggestion.
The exploits of the great adventurer Ernest Shackleton are already the stuff of legend, myths of a time gone by when fearless men circumnavigated the globe just to see if they could. The Irishman led three expeditions to Antarctica, staving off sub-zero temperatures and general hardship to expand the limits of man’s knowledge of his world. Shackleton was a leader of men, often keeping his charges calm and collected during times of extraordinary peril; his ship, the aptly named Endurance, crashed on an ice floe and Shackleton kept his crew sane and alive through the harrowing ordeal that followed. He’s the sort of historical figure that macho actors line up to play, preferably in a well-financed biopic.
How good does a movie have to look to offset its other deficiencies? The Revenant is as beautiful a movie as has ever been made. The photography by master cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki is inconceivably gorgeous; sweeping wide shots that juxtapose tiny, insignificant men against the overwhelming grandeur of nature, close-ups so intimate they seem like invasions of the actors’ privacy, and action sequences of shocking violence.
Tom Hardy was one of many high-profile actors who, last month, signed on to star in Warner Bros.’ adaptation of the DC Comics title ‘Suicide Squad’. His co-stars included Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Jared Leto and Jai Courtney. But, the Squad will have to move on without its leader as Hardy has abruptly dropped out of the project.

Tom Hardy is awesome. He's a great actor for sure. It turns out he's actually good people too! When a 23 year old cancer patient went on a British talk show and said that going out on a date with Tom was on her bucket list...he made it happen!
