Tom Hardy is obviously taking his Venom cinematic character seriously–and he’s trying to keep fans as interested as possible in the upcoming sequel.
To this end, the actor took to his personal Instagram handle this week and posted a never-before-seen set photo of the symbiote from Venom: Let There Be Carnage, as reported by screenrant.com. Check out the bizarre image below.
The image seems to show a reflection of Venom–sporting his trademark toothy grin–in the darkened visor of a blacked-out motorcycle helmet. No details regarding this scene were offered by Hardy, but it must be assumed the unfortunate helmet-wearer is about to have a close encounter with Venom. Never a good thing.
It was reported earlier this month here in Horror News Network that the release date for the Sony Pictures sequel to the 2018 box office smash Venom was bumped back to Oct. 15. And with the continued impact of the pandemic being felt everywhere, that date should be jotted down in pencil somewhere. Stay tuned.
Venom: Let There Be Carnage–directed by Andy Serkis from a screenplay by Kelly Marcel–finds journalist Eddie Brock (Hardy) struggling to adjust to his life as the host of the alien symbiote Venom.
During an assignment, Brock interviews jailed serial killer Cletus Kasady (Woody Harrelson), who attacks him, bites his hand and tastes something other than blood. This violent exchange leaves Kasady as the host of another symbiote, Carnage, and all hell breaks loose.
The Marvel Comics character of Venom began as a living alien costume in The Amazing Spider–Man No. 252 in 1984, and had its first full appearance in issue No. 300 (1988) of that comic book.
