Bane on Venom

Variety is reporting that Tom Hardy, who played Bane in Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises, will next play another iconic comic book villain, Venom. The frequent Spider-Man villain is getting his own film next year, which will be directed by Ruben Fleischer, who made Zombieland.

A few months back, Sony surprised movie fans everywhere by putting a Venom movie on their release schedule. Rumors of a film based on the character had been going around for years but, once Spider-Man started being shared with Marvel Studios, they sort of went away.

With Hardy and Fleischer now aboard, Venom will lead what’s expected to be Sony’s own unique sliver of the Marvel universe—one that’ll feature other famous Spider-Man rogues, and may include a Black Cat and Silver Sable film. No one knows if these villain films will crossover, or just tell one-off comic book stories; what is almost certain, however, is that Spider-Man won’t be part of them.

I'm​ hearing 90s TAS Venom mixed with Hardy's Bane.

Not pleasant.

A Spider-Manless Venom movie is a bad idea.

I think Hardy can pull it off.

But I have to wonder what his next character is going to be named.

Hardy's acting has nothing to do with the movie being a bad idea.

At the very least, they should establish him with Spidey before trying to spin him off solo.

Ever see that Venom fan-short "Man bites Dog"?

It's a workable idea, if not the best one.

Haven't heard of it and couldn't find it.  What's the premise?

Basically some people interview and follow Brock around to try and get a scoop on him.

See how he does news.

You only get some vague showings of him being venom it's all basically Brock centered except for the occasion here or there.

It's okay.

Okay I was wrong it was titled "Truth in Journalism"

http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x222w79_truthinjournalism_shortfilms

Since it apparently has a copy right'd bit in the sound track I don't know how long it will be non-muted since all the others I found were.

Anyone hear the theory that the "Life" Ryan Reynolds movie is a venom-prequel?

That sounds fun for a short film but not a feature length movie.

no but I've heard a few theories that it relates to The Faculty




as for a Venom movie..... let's pull a Deadpool/Logan, get an R rating, and somebody call Cronenberg to direct

I've heard the theories on Life, yeah. That'd be neat, but I never saw that flick.

Reminds me, back in the day I was convinced that the first season of Lost was actually a really elaborate lead-in to the next X-Men flick, and the island was The Savage Land.



OT: I don't see Spider-Man being MANDATORY to a Venom flick. It's its own continuity. They can just have the symbiote bypass Peter entirely. It comes from space, finds Brock as a disgraced reporter or whatever, they go eat brains. It'd be a lesser story, but I don't think it's 100% necessary to have Spidey to have a Venom.

It's like having a Catwoman movie without Batman.
