Venom: Tom Hardy Clarifies Cut Footage Comments

Venom: Tom Hardy Clarifies Cut Footage Comments

It is a darker tale from the Marvel Comics superhero universe than what audiences have seen in recent films such as "The Avengers" series released by Walt Disney Co. At least, I have not been angry during the viewing?

The synopsis states, "One of Marvel's most enigmatic, complex and badass characters comes to the big screen, starring Academy Award-nominated actor Tom Hardy as the lethal protector Venom". I would love to say it didn't show, but character development is important and almost everyone's development is "and then they do this" rather than "because they do this". An atypical film in that time, the super-hero film revolves around an invisible hero and an insane general hunting the formula that makes one invisible. I am not sure I have had the reactions that could be expected on certain scenes, but the fun is fun, even when it's totally ridiculous right? "How do we deal with the Venom, and Marvel is all metaphors".

Venom starts too slowly and it's hard to see what Hardy is trying to achieve by playing Brock as a schlub with chronic ADD and voicing Venom as Darth Vader with laryngitis. It's not "good", but it's better than expected.

I never quite got a read on Venom himself, though. "It doesn't look like a film R-Rated and I suppose the 40 minutes of deleted were just Tom Hardy doing the clown".

But I can't help coming back to the proof of concept idea; did Venom prove the character can stand on its own?

"That's been misunderstood. What I'm trying to say is, the question was [what] scenes I was most excited to shoot...and I was like, there's a bunch of stuff that hasn't made the movie".

Tottenham's big guns missing for visit of Barcelona
Kane , 25, will line up against Messi on Wednesday when Spurs host Barcelona at Wembley in Group B of the Champions League . When you're scoring as many goals as he is - 40, 50 or 60 goals a season - as a striker, I want to try and match that.

Flotilla of small boats rescues passengers from crashed plane in Micronesia
Earlier reports said seven passengers and crew members were taken to a hospital but no one suffered serious injury. Bill Jaynes, managing editor of a Micronesia-based newspaper, was on the plane when it hit the water.

Kavanaugh to Get Senate Vote This Week, McConnell Says
Flake has spent the last few days broadening the possibility that he may reject Kavanaugh's nomination when the full Senate votes. That's what you're telling me when you vote for him.

The Verge: It's a train wreck of a movie, mixing and matching wildly dissonant tones, freaky plot contrivances, and a truly unique lead performance.

"I am fascinated by Venom".

"This radically different approach will surely be jarring to some, but the fact that this movie could never exist in the same world as "Captain America: Civil War" despite hailing from the same brand of comics is part of its charm". I kinda enjoyed watching this movie, in the manner of Rocky Horror.

What Venom has going for it is Hardy, rasping and bellowing and acting at a 10.

Venom hits theatres on October 5th.
