Tom Hardy Confirms Carnage Is the Villain in Venom?

Tom Hardy Confirms Carnage Is the Villain in Venom?
Did Tom Hardy just accidentally confirm that Carnage is going to be in the Venom movie? At this point, it would probably be nothing shy of disappointing if the fan-favorite bad guy didn't appear in Venom, given how much conversation has swirled surrounding his possible inclusion in the upcoming Spider-Man spin-off (that may or may not actually feature Tom Holland's Peter Parker in some capacity). Now, thanks to star Tom Hardy, it looks like we more or less have the confirmation we've been looking for.

Plot details for Venom have largely been kept under wraps by Sony at this point, but Carnage has been rumored to be the movie's main villain pretty much since the beginning. With that in mind, Tom Hardy's since-deleted recent Instagram post is more than intriguing. The image features Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock in the foreground, with Carnage looming terrifyingly large in the background.

Tom Holland's Spider-Man to Appear in Venom?

  • Cinelinx
Let the Rumors run wild, as once again speculation is a foot with the possibility of Spidey showing up in Sony’s Venom.

As far back as the conception of a Venom film fans have been skeptical. Mostly as it appeared Spider-Man would not appear in his arch nemesis’ film. They eased our worries with the announcement of Tom Hardy as the lead anti-hero. However we quickly turned back to skepticism. However then Sony through Riz Ahmed and the possibility of Carnage at us, and we were happy. Momentarily. So they gave us Academy Nominated actress Michele Williams. Still we clamored for the Web-head.

We had a glimmer of hope back in June during a very confusing interview in which Amy Pascal said that the Venom and Black Cat/Silver Sable films would be in line with the McU, which lead to a very confused Feige. Later Feige confirmed that was not the case,

Tom Holland's Spider-Man is Rumored to Appear in Venom

I've got a big rumor here regarding Tom Hardy's Venom. If the rumor is true, then maybe Sony Picture's Spider-verse is going to be connected to the McU after all. 

The rumor originated from comic book movie scooper Jon Schnepp on a recent episode of Collider Movie Talk. While on the show he told said that Tom Holland's Spider-Man is going to make an appearance in Venom. He says:

"I'm gonna say it right here on this show, Spider-Man is gonna be in Venom. For the last couple months, we've been talking about Venom, we've been hearing about how Sony's keeping it all separated. Spider-Man's in the Marvel Cinematic Universe but every other character that's in the Spider-Man universe is separate."

This is just a big fat rumor right now, and I'd personally take it with a grain of salt. I hope it's true! But there's no official confirmation of this.

Tom Holland's Spider-Man to Appear in Venom After All?

Don't get too excited just yet, Marvel fans, but it looks like we could be seeing Tom Holland as Spider-Man show up in Sony's upcoming Venom movie after all. Early on in the process, we heard that Sony wanted this Spider-Man spin-off universe to connect to the McU. Specifically, they want the new Spider-Man to be a part of the universe. While that has been shot down by Kevin Feige and others since, a new rumor suggests Sony may have worked it all out.

During the latest episode of Collider Movie Talk, co-host Jon Schnepp revealed that he's heard from an unnamed source that Spider-Man is indeed going to appear in Venom, which stars Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock. He couldn't reveal much else about the alleged appearance, but if this holds true, it sounds like Venom will, in some way, be connected, even if only loosely, to the McU.

Rumor: Marvel Ending All Of Its Animated TV Shows

A new rumour states that Marvel might be wiping its slate of ongoing animated TV shows clean. Disney Xd is currently home to three successful cartoons released under the Marvel banner, namely Avengers Assemble, Guardians of the Galaxy and the latest Spider-Man animated series, but the studio is apparently undergoing a rethink of its animated output.

The report comes from The Tomb of the Cartoon Monkey Skeleton blog, run by an ex-professional who worked in the animation industry for 40 years before retiring. Their report is also based on the word of several crew members of these shows, who claim that they’ve been laid off as the three series have been officially placed on hiatus. The outstanding work will be completed over the next few months.

Considering the news we learned last month, this rumour seems like it’s on the level. Back in December, a new animated movie titled Marvel Rising was announced,

‘Venom’ Rumored to Include Cameo from Tom Holland’s Spider-Man

Production is currently underway on Sony’s Venom movie starring Tom Hardy. Fans wondered how you could have Venom without Spider-Man, who is kind of the progenitor of the character in the comics. The whole reason Venom has Spider-Man-like powers is because the alien symbiote went to Peter Parker first and when Peter rejected the symbiote, it found Eddie Brock, thus creating a darker, more muscular, and drool-ier version of Spider-Man. But we heard repeatedly, especially out of the Spider-Man: Homecoming junket, that the new Spider-Man played by Tom Holland exists in a …

Marvel reportedly cancelling all Disney Xd animated shows

Kirsten Howard Jan 16, 2018

Rumours suggest that Marvel is changing strategy and cancelling all of the Disney Xd series, including Spider-Man and Avengers Assemble...

Marvel's Disney Xd shows have a big fan base encompassing old and young viewers alike. Guardians Of The Galaxy, Spider-Man and Avengers Assemble are currently pulling in decent numbers, and above all, they're a joy to watch.

It's terrifically sad, then, to hear reports this week from the animation community that Marvel are about to announce the cancellation of all three shows.

Friends of the site working on the series had alluded to the news being in the wind earlier this week, but were unable to confirm the move for contractual reasons. Now, however, the reliable Totcms blog have stated that "some of Marvel Animation's shows are going on hiatus and (we're told) crews being laid off. Crew members say that much Ma work will be

Guardians Of The Galaxy Might Not’ve Been Made If Disney Already Owned The X-Men

Marvel are famous for their ‘What Ifs,’ and just yesterday, Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn pondered a big one: if Marvel Studios had always owned the rights to the X-Men, Spider-Man and Fantastic Four, would Guardians have been greenlit?

The question came as part of a Twitter Q&A in which Gunn answered fan queries, and here was his response:

It’s a hard question. Kevin Feige was into the idea of Guardians because of his deep love of Star Wars and space operas. But the Marvel Studios schedule might have been too glutted with content/movies and it would have never been made.

It’s interesting to ponder, as Marvel Studios is arguably formed around not having ‘superhero A-list’ properties. It’s difficult to imagine now, but back in the mid-2000s characters like Iron Man, Captain America and Thor were familiar only to comic fans – and

The Best Visual Effects Oscar Winners of the 21st Century, Ranked from Worst to Best
When people talk about the magic of cinema, they’re usually not referring to monologues. More often than not, it’s the awe-inspiring visuals and imaginary worlds coming to life that give the phrase “movie magic” the ring of truth. None of that would be possible without visual effects, an ever-evolving field that pushes filmmakers like James Cameron and Peter Jackson further and further in their quest to create that special spark.

The films that have won the Oscar for Best Visual Effects represent the most innovative visual storytelling of the last two decades. Using motion capture technology, computer-generated imagery, miniatures and giant puppets, these films create fantasy worlds and creatures beyond our wildest imaginations.

‘Venom’ Releases First Official Image

Sony Pictures has released the first official image from the upcoming ‘Venom‘ spin-off. The film, which stars Tom Hardy and is directed by Ruben Fleischer, is set to be the first of what Sony hopes will be a series of films set in the Spider-Man universe featuring side characters such as Venom. This film in particular has been in development since his appearance in ‘Spider-Man 3’, having multiple directors attached to the project before Fleischer, most notably when Alex Kurtman was writing the film to be a stand alone piece. After the The Amazing Spider-Man 3 never came to fruition, and Sony came to a deal with Marvel to share the character, Fleischer’s film was fast-tracked for it’s current release date.

Since the announcement of the film, the look of Venom himself are being kept under tight wraps, as the character is set to be brought to life using motion capture techniques.

Tom Hardy webs up a Venom behind the scenes featurette video

Earlier today, we got our first official look at Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock in the upcoming Ruben Fleischer-directed Venom movie. The photo was a welcomed, high-rez look at the actor, who up until now had only been glimpsed on the set of the Spider-Man spinoff by way of blurry paparazzi images (and one ridiculous video). Granted, Brock may not be all drool and razor-sharp teeth in the... Read More...

Is Black Widow Secretly Marvel’s All-Female Avengers Movie?

The recent announcement that a Black Widow film is reportedly in the works was surprising to say the least. But to many, many Marvel fans, it felt like news that was long overdue. After all, the original Avengers lineup (save for Hawkeye) have all had solo films, and most subsequent superheroes introduced to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, like Doctor Strange, Spider-Man and Black Panther, likewise have all experienced the solo movie treatment. Despite being over twenty movies deep, Marvel Studios hasn’t had a female superhero-led movie yet, and many have always wondered why Natasha Romanoff was being left in the cold.

It’s no surprise that Sony’s upcoming Venom film has a lot of fans champing at the bit for the slightest bit of information about the Spider-Man spinoff.

Teen Titans Go To The Movies Big In First Trailer

Hitting theaters on July 27, 2018 is Teen Titans Go! to the Movies. Warner Bros. Pictures has released a first trailer for the upcoming animated movie.

When the Teen Titans go to the big screen, they go big!

Teen Titans Go! to the Movies” finds our egocentric, wildly satirical Super Heroes in their first feature film extravaganza—a fresh, gleefully clever, kid-appropriately crass and tongue-in-cheek play on the superhero genre, complete with musical numbers. It seems to the Teens that all the major superheroes out there are starring in their own movies—everyone but the Teen Titans, that is! But de facto leader Robin is determined to remedy the situation, and be seen as a star instead of a sidekick. If only they could get the hottest Hollywood film director to notice them. With a few madcap ideas and a song in their heart, the Teen Titans head to Tinsel Town, certain to pull off their dream.
