Tom Hardy Signs On For A Venom Trilogy Before the First Movie Is Even Released

Published

From supporting actor to leading man, Tom Hardy has done it all. No matter the role, Tom Hardy brings raw emotion and full commitment to the part. However, through no fault of his own, he has also had his share of bad roles.

Superheroes Are The Bane Of His Existence

With the upcoming Venom movie set to hit theaters this fall, one can’t help but feel a little uncertain. Hardy’s last foray into the superhero genre was as Bane in The Dark Knight Rises. While it wasn’t a bad movie, many critics didn’t like the bad guy’s portrayal.

But such criticism won’t stop Hardy. The perennial big screen favorite has already agreed to three movies as Venom. Such an announcement is surprising, to say the least.

Unproven and Uncertain

The biggest concerns stem from the spotty trailers for the movie. Haphazard editing and poor CGI cuts aren’t setting a great tone. The film’s rating still hasn’t been established and fans just don’t know what to expect.

Many are wondering how Marvel will approach the first stand-alone Venom film. Will it be light-hearted like the monolith MCU franchise? Or will it be significantly darker, akin to recent installments such as the 2017 blockbuster, Logan?

What’s The Catch, Tom?

The Mad Max star has a history of signing on to some dubious projects, and sometimes it pays off. Remember Dunkirk? Even though he wasn’t the star, Hardy managed to cement himself as a critical member of the cast. What’s more, he earned a Best Supporting Actor nomination for the role.

Hardy is all in on this next project. In an issue of Total Film, he spoke about the trilogy announcement. “I’m open to whatever you want to do with it. We’ve signed up for three of them. So it’s very much an open case. We’ll see what people’s responses are to it. I think it’s an awesome character. I love playing both of them. It’s an amuse-bouche, and for Sony, it’s the Venom-verse launched in isolation, as it were.”

Venom is set to release on October 5th, 2018.
