A leaked video from the set of Sony’s Venom in Atlanta shows Scott Haze’s mysterious villain taunting a beaten down Eddie Brock played by Tom Hardy.
It’s hard to actually see what Haze is doing to Hardy’s face as his body blocks the camera, but he could be injecting him with something or even using a syringe to draw a sample. It’s possible he’s just slapping him around too.
Maybe the most interesting part of the video is the third actor in the brown jacket who is standing above both Haze and Hardy. The way he is moving and swaying back and forth makes me think he might be infected by a symbiote.
It’s more than likely we will see a number of symbiotes aside from Tom Hardy’s Venom in the upcoming film. The film is supposed to be based on Planet of the Symbiotes as well as Lethal Protector. Both of those stories involve multiple symbiotes.
However, one has to worry that Sony might be making a mistake with their symbiotes. None of the actors are wearing motion capture suits and we’ve only seen Tom Hardy in plainclothes as Eddie Brock. It’s possible Sony might ground the symbiotes in reality and not give us the classic monsters we’ve seen from the comics and animated cartoons. I highly doubt this will happen.
It’s more than likely Haze’s character might be trying to experiment on the symbiotes and even alter their DNA in order to gain control of them or perform some other kind of nefarious experiments. It’s quite possible Brock might be investigating Haze’s experiments and is succinctly beaten up for sticking his nose where it doesn’t belong. Haze then tells him to take a hike and never come back or else.
What do you think could be happening?
Venom stars Tom Hardy, Michelle Williams, Riz Ahmed, Woody Harrelson, and Scott Haze. The movie is directed by Ruben Fleischer. The film is expected to debut on October 5, 2018.
