Tom Hardy, who is said to be a "Venom" fan, will play Eddie Brock, the character who first became Venom. First appearing in the comic book series as an alien costume worn by Spider-Man in Marvel‘s “The Amazing Spider-Man” #252 in 1984, it was several years before the creature left Peter Parker and merged with photographer Eddie Brock, forming the antihero known as Venom. The film is based on not one but TWO comic book storylines: 'Venom: Lethal Protector' and 'Planet of the Symbiotes.'
When Eddie Brock acquires the powers of a symbiote, he will have to release his alter-ego “Venom” to save his life.
