Tom Hardy says his "favorite 40 minutes" were cut from Venom

Tom Hardy says his

Mike Ryan of Uproxx said: "I'm *fascinated* with VENOM". The answer is... yeah, mostly. The film will make the beginning of the Sony universe of Marvel Characters, with spinoffs of other characters like Morbius, Silver Sable, Black Cat and Jackpot in the works, already.

As you can see on the Rotten Tomatoes website, the current rating for Venom is a low 30% as of time of writing. And it did that.

The majority of critics are praising Hardy's strangely unorthodox performance as reporter Eddie Brock who is consumed by an alien symbiote. Modern superhero movies have gotten really good at telling emotional stories about their leads, you're interested and invested because you care about them.

This clip shows Eddie Brock asking some tough questions to Carlton Drake. Eddie is ruined, but he's right. Hardy also mentions that everything he wanted for the story was included in the film and that it is awesome and he's ready for a sequel. And I guess save the day, too. Since that sounds an bad lot like a red flag, IGN took to asking Hardy about the quote at the premiere for Venom last night.

The anticipation for Venom has been lukewarm, mostly because the trailers painted quite an odd movie that felt like it came out of a time capsule that was lost in 2004. "Sorry to say that #Venom is pretty much a complete failure", wrote one critic. Hardy later clarified his comments following fans' shocked reactions.




- Tom Jorgensen, IGNTom Hardy is and always will be a great actor. And both are the only reason to watch. "Why does he do that?!", Ahmed said.

He is joined by stars including Michelle Williams and Jenny Slater as well as Reid Scott.

Venom was first seen on screen in 2007's much derided Spider-Man 3, and "this cumbersome movie - so different from the recent nimble, populous and often genuinely amusing Marvel films - feels like something that should be facing off with Tobey Maguire".

In recent interviews to promote the film, Hardy mentioned his favourite 40-minutes of footage - full of "mad puppeteering scenes" and "dark comedy" - had been cut entirely. 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".
