Here's your first look at Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock in 'Venom'

TODO alt text

Sony Pictures reveals a first look at Tom Hardy in the upcoming Venom movie. Mostly because it's hard to imagine why Tom Hardy would even be in a Venom movie, not to mention Michelle Williams and Jenny Slate.

For any fans that aren't well versed in Spider-Man lore, the Life Foundation is a survivalist group believing the world will be ending by way of nuclear holocaust. As you zoom in, EW notes, you can see questions like "So how exactly does the Life Foundation go about testing its pharmaceuticals?" and "What about the allegations your empire is built on?".

It looks like this version of Brock will be fit, but not bodybuilder size like the original from the comics.

STEC O157 outbreak sickens 66 and kills two in USA and Canada
That's an increase of seven illnesses since the initial report of the outbreak on December 28, 2017. But U.S. health authorities have said it's too early to blame leafy greens as the probe continues.

We've had six (!) Spider-Man movies since 2002, and while one might expect such a glut of wall-crawler adventures to lead to audience fatigue, the success of last year's Marvel Cinematic Universe entry Spider-Man: Homecoming ($334 million domestic; $880 million global) suggests otherwise.

Could Venom draw story cues from The Five Symbiotes?

Hardy and the film's director Ruben Fleischer offered the tease at Brazil Comic Con Experience, but that teaser was limited to the people in the room on that day - until now.

Longbow Research Gives GoPro (GPRO) Lower Rating; Lear (LEA) Sentiment Is 0.92
Among 23 analysts covering GoPro Inc (NASDAQ: GPRO ), 5 have Buy rating, 6 Sell and 12 Hold. CEO Nicholas Woodman is also reducing his salary to $1 this year.

That second question isn't particularly illuminating on its own, but the other two all but confirm previous reports that Venom is based, at least in part, on Venom: Lethal Protector.

That's pretty straightforward. Perhaps Brock is interviewing Life Foundation boss Carlton Drake in this scene? We'll have to wait and see how closely the film will be following that storyline, and what role Carnage could play in all of it. In any case, it looks like we've figured out this movie's villains.
