"That's been misunderstood. What I'm trying to say is, the question was [what] scenes I was most excited to shoot...and I was like, there's a bunch of stuff that hasn't made the movie". Joining him in the film are Michelle Williams (The Greatest Showman), Riz Ahmed (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story), Jenny Slate (Zootopia), Scott Haze, Reid Scott and Woody Harrelson (the Hunger Games franchise, True Detective).

Hardy's character Eddie Brock is a scruffy crusading journalist, who moved from NY to San Francisco to be with Anne (Michelle Williams), his out-of-his-league fiancée. While investigating one of Drake's experiments, Eddie's body merges with the alien Venom, leaving him with superhuman strength and power. A quote from the comic goes, "You're Eddie Brock". The problem with Venom is simple: only one person involved in this thing seems to understand what the movie should be.

The story is a Jekyll-and-Hyde tale where Hardy's journalist character, Eddie Brock, tries to keep Venom's bad behavior under control.

After he was asked what his favourite scene to film was, Tom gave the rather non-PR friendly line that his best scenes were "cut from the film", not holding back in showing his feelings towards the director's choice.

It takes too long for Venom to fully rear his generously-fanged, obscenely-tongued head and for the movie to fully get into flight, and just when it starts flowing, the obligatory action set-pieces start kicking off as Venom is endlessly pursued by Carlton Drake and his interchangeable goons. It feels as if the studio executives saw the reactions to those films and tried to just maximize superhero CGI stuff in this, eliminating anything resembling mythology or character development. Director Ruben Fleischer, who made his name with the fluid and entertaining Zombieland almost a decade ago, is unable to make heads or tails of the action set pieces here. Exhausted of the same old bland Marvel Cinematic Universe offerings?

With the Sony-sponsored "Venom" lens, users can tap the Venom icon to toggle between changing their voice to sound like the symbiote or playing the Eminem track.

Hardy, meanwhile, has also hinted that some Venom sequels could indeed be in the works soon, telling Total Film: 'We've signed up for three of them.

The only thing we can be sure of is that, should Venom be greenlit for a part two, Carnage fans will definitely have something to write home about. One of the main reasons for Venom's longevity is that he has an actual character arc that unfolded over time. It won't kill you to get to the parking lot a little late - that is, unless there's an alien symbiote lying in wait.

Venom hits theaters on October 5. Venom is being released by Sony Pictures, which owns rights to several Marvel characters that are not owned by Disney.

"On paper, Hardy is the ideal Eddie Brock, effortlessly embodying the fluid physicality and jittery paranoia of a man being consumed by sentient space goo ..."

Bringing this enigmatic and complex Marvel character - the lethal protector - to the big screen is Tom Hardy.
