The first look at Sony’s standalone Venom movie is here, and Tom Hardy can’t stop brooding. Though, if you had a sinister alien symbiotic using you as a human host you’d probably be pretty broody too. In Ruben Fleischer’s Venom, Hardy steps into the role of reporter and troubled soul, Eddie Brock. Plot details are still sparse, but we know the thriller is based on Venom’s first solo narrative, 1993’s Venom: Lethal Protector. In it, Spider-Man’s most famous villain finds himself starting anew in San Francisco after leaving New York.
