In the comics, Bane uses a drug called the venom serum to enhance his strength, making us wonder if they had this planned all along!

Deadline is reporting that Tom Hardy will suit up as Venom in Sony's new film, with Gangster Squad director Ruben Fleischer set to helm. The studio announced the casting in a black-and-white image on social media Friday with the actor donning a T-shirt emblazoned with the character's pearly whites.

Tom Hardy is set to join Sony's rebooted Marvel universe in the Spider-Man spin-off Venom.

Venom is to usher in a host of movies from Sony's Marvel and Spider-Man-based universe of characters.

This is obviously a major get for Sony, which views Venom as the kickoff to a major web of interconnected movies. Anyway, you can see Hardy showing off his fandom above. Apparently, after Hardy dropped out of upcoming thriller Triple Frontier, Sony struck and got the formidable thespian to take on the role of the disgraced journalist who bonds with an alien symbiote, of which both have a serious grudge against Spider-Man. So, clearly there's some animosity there. Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach will produce with Amy Pascal.

Throughout the history of Marvel Comics, Venom has appeared alongside Spider-Man, Iron Man, Deadpool, Hulk, and other Marvel Comics characters. Venom is reportedly meant to be an R-rated, sci-fi horror take on the classic Spider-Man villain, who was portrayed on screen by Topher Grace in the last installment of Sam Raimi's Spider-Man trilogy. He's widely known for his portrayal of another well-known comic baddie - Bane in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises. Rosenberg's credits include Con Air and Kangaroo Jack while Pinkner previously worked on The Amazing Spider-Man 2. The studio is eagerly aiming to make the film's 2018 release date.
