Tom Hardy Reveals Which Comic Book Series Has Most Influenced VENOM And Teases The Movie's Tone

Tom Hardy has shed further light on what we should expect from Venom, revealing where the movie takes place and which comic book has influenced it. He also weighs in on what he plans to bring to the role.

Well, it looks like Tom Hardy's Venom is officially going to be a "Lethal Protector" as the actor confirmed in a video package at Comic Con Experience 2017 in Sao Paulo, Brazil that the comic book of the same name will heavily influence the movie from Sony Pictures. Published in 1993, the series saw Eddie Brock move to San Francisco after making a truce with Spider-Man but he was soon hunted down by the Life Foundation, a group ultimately transformed into a deadly new group of symbiotes! 

Venom also served as a vigilante of sorts, dispensing brutal justice to those who did wrong to innocents. During the video, Hardy also confirmed that the movie takes place in San Francisco.

That gives Venom yet another tie to "Lethal Protector" and the actor proceeded to tell fans that he'll do the character justice and plans to bring plenty of action and dark humour to the role. Hardy also stated that the movie will be important to the Marvel Universe but it's safe to say he probably wasn't referring to the Marvel Cinematic Universe! After all, this isn't expected to take place in that world.
