Tom Hardy Praised For His “Venom” Performance2 weeks ago by Amber Le in Movie News
Venom has been racking up bad reviews but apparently, there’s a huge mass of trolls pouring their reviews in resulting in a 29% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Besides that, the movie is holding the biggest Thursday night premiere in box office ratings for the month of October and everyone is raving about Tom Hardy’s performance.
The Chief Creative Officer of Marvel Entertainment, Avi Arad and Founder of Marvel Studios, Matt Tolmach are more than pleased with Hardy’s adaptation of the character. Tolmach expressed his excitement when he found out Hardy agreed to play Eddie Brock.
“He chose us. He did choose us. But you know this. Venom is such a beloved, sacred character. You got to do it right by that character, because you’ve got to do right by people’s expectations. It’s a character that demands integrity, it’s a super intense character, it’s a complicated layered character. Who pulls that off?”
Avid commented in addition to Tolmach’s.
“And the only person that can pull that off is somebody who brings that level of integrity. Right away, when we were making this movie, you’d say to someone ‘Hey, what are you working on?’ And you say, ‘I’m making a Venom movie with Tom Hardy’ and they’re like ‘No way. Wow. That’s awesome.’ because you look at his career and you take it seriously.”
