Tom Hardy Cast As Venom In Spider-Man Spinoff Movie

Hardy previously played the villain Bane in 2012's The Dark Knight Rises, facing off against Christian Bale's Batman. Venom is an alien symbiote, a parasitic lifeform that latches on to a human host in order to survive, imbuing its meat condo with an array of superhuman powers that rival Spider-Man's. The character appeared in Sam Raimi's Spider-Man 3, where he was played by Topher Grace.
