First Still From Tom Hardy's VENOM Film

First official look at Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock in Venom.

The pad itself makes specific reference to a "foundation" dealing with pharmaceutical testing, and while this could, in all seriousness, be making reference to any other foundation, chances are it's our first confirmation that the Life Foundation will be pulling the strings in Sony's Venom film.

An image is released of Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock, and a video from the recent Brazil Comic-Con features a behind-the-scenes look at the Venom movie with Tom Hardy showing off the Venom logo from Atlanta, Georgia.

As for the plot, it appears that the standalone Venom film will be inspired by two classic miniseries, Lethal Protector and Planet of the Symbiotes.

Venom is set for a release on October 5.

We're promised "the best Venom" possible.

Written by David Michelinie and drawn by Mark Bagley, as well as Ron Lim and Sam Delarosa, Venom: Lethal Protector was a six-episode limited series that notably reinvented Venom from a Spider-Man villain to a Marvel Comics anti-hero. The character moves from New York City to San Francisco in the story.

As for the arc in Planet of the Symbiotes, that plotline sees Earth being invaded by an army of symbiotes with Venom teaming up with Spider-Man and Scarlet Spider to stop them. 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.

This is a movie that's been a long time coming at Sony, and at one point was poised to be directed by Alex Kurtzman (The Mummy) as a spinoff of the then-planned Spider-Man universe revolving around the Amazing Spider-Man movies.
