If it wasn't previously confirmed, it now appears that Tom Hardy is playing Eddie Brock in the Venom movie.
The Venom Facebook page posted a 360-degree behind-the-scenes image with: "Hard at work in Eddie‚Äôs apartment¬†#Venom."
Tom Hardy previously teased what appeared to be the "Agent Venom" suit worn by Flash Thompson in the comics, but the Marvel Spider-Man: Homecoming movie features a different Flash. While the Sony Venom¬†film isn't a part of the Marvel Studios movies, they do share the same Spider-Man.
We can guess the Venom movie may be doing some sort of adaptation of both Eddie Brock and the Agent Venom storyline from the comics.
Venom¬†is directed by¬†Ruben Fleischer for an October 5, 2018 release date¬†also starring¬†Jenny Slate,¬†Michelle Williams and¬†Riz Ahmed.
