Tom Hardy Will Play Venom, Nathan Fillion’s Place in the MCU and More from Marvel Movies


We’ve known for a while that a Venom movie was on the way, but until today, nobody knew who would play him. Sony Pictures announced on Twitter today that Tom Hardy will play Eddie Brock in the upcoming movie. The studio tweeted out the news along with a picture of Hardy wearing a Venom T-Shirt.

That’s not a terrible choice at all. Hardy is a great actor who, as we saw in his TV series Taboo earlier this year, plays the antihero very well. Over the years, Venom grew from one of Spider-Man’s scariest adversaries to a conflicted hero, who doesn’t always have the same moral obligations that Spider-Man does. Eddie Brock isn’t a particularly good person naturally, but he does try to become better and help those around him. Sometimes. That inner conflict is sure to give Hardy a lot to work with, and it’ll be interesting to see his take on the character.

Sony is trying to launch their own universe separate from the MCU with the Spider-Man characters they own the rights to. Even though Tom Holland’s Spider-Man exists in the MCU, Tom Hardy’s Venom will not. Presumably, the Spider-Man movies will exist in both universes. That does make Venom’s origin a little tricky. If the symbiote won’t make an appearance in Spider-Man: Homecoming, how does it find Brock? Does it still have Spider abilities? Does it still block Spider-Man’s Spider-Sense if Holland’s Parker never dons the black suit? We’ll have to see how this movie addresses the character’s origin when it comes out on October 5, 2018.

Sony creating their own separate Marvel universe may not sit well with Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige. Screen Rant reports that Feige’s goal is to get all of Marvel’s superheroes back under Marvel Entertainment’s control. That includes the X-Men, who are owned by Fox and the Spider-Man characters Sony has the rights to. His ultimate goal, he said, is to recreate the experience comic book readers have for the movies. That means every Marvel character under the same umbrella, interacting with each other just like they do in the comics.

“We’ve been able to accomplish that beyond my wildest dreams over the last ten years,” Feige said. “And certainly, including Spidey in Civil War, in the upcoming Infinity War, is yet another dream that I didn’t even dare to talk about publicly because I thought the odds of it were very slim. So, no plans beyond that for the few remaining characters that aren’t already in the MCU but never say never. Who knows what can happen in the future?”

For now, it seems unlikely that Fox will willingly part with the X-Men or even the Fantastic Four, regardless of how that last movie turned out. That’s why it’s so interesting that Marvel is partnering with the studios that own the rights its characters. If you can’t get the characters back, might as well make sure you have some control over their stories. In addition to partnering with Sony to get Spidey in the MCU, Marvel Studios has worked with Fox to create X-Men TV shows like Legion and The Gifted. If we’re ever going to get every Marvel character in the same universe (or on the same screen), it’ll likely happen through partnerships like this.

As for the rest of the MCU, we’re starting to see exactly what the studio is building towards for the end of Phase Three. New official synopses have been released for both Black Panther and Infinity War that give us an idea of where these movies are headed, Inverse reports. Black Panther‘s plot is probably very close to what you guessed it would be. T’Challa assumes the Wakandan throne after the death of his father in Captain America: Civil War. Of course, not everyone in his country is happy with their new king. He fights a rebel faction that aims to draw Wakanda into a world war. This is pretty well-trodden territory for the Black Panther comics, and it’ll be fun to see some of T’Challa’s greatest moments play out on the big screen.

Meanwhile, for Avengers: Infinity War, the synopsis confirms that it will feature the Avengers fighting Thanos. Duh. The synopsis reveals that his goal has changed since his debut in the post-credits scene of The Avengers. He no longer wants to court death. Now, he wants to collect the six Infinity Stones so he can control all of reality. What he wants to do with all of reality remains to be seen. At this point, anticipation for both these movies has been built up about as high as it could possibly go. It’s getting to the point where we’d just wish they’d come out already. We still have aways to wait, though. Black Panther is due for release on February 18, 2016. Avengers: Infinity War will be out on May 4, 2018. At least Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 was good enough to tide us over.

Speaking of which, our final story from the MCU concerns Nathan Fillion’s mysterious role in it. James Gunn tweeted out this fake movie poster from a deleted scene from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. The poster features Nathan Fillion as Simon Williams, an actor who is also the superhero Wonder Man. The poster has him playing Tony Stark in a Jobson his Facebook page-like biopic. Gunn recently explained the reason these posters exist.

Basically, the poster was created as an Easter egg to be visible in the background during a certain scene. Unfortunately, the scene slowed the pacing of the movie to a crawl and had to be cut. Gunn is best friends with Fillion, and the actor has appeared in every one of his movies. (He had a voice-over role in the first Guardians of the Galaxy.) Gunn wants Fillion to have a significant role in the MCU going forward. That’s why he made this poster implying that he would play Wonder Man.

“I didn’t have a good cameo for him in Vol. 2 – and I wanted to bring him more fully into the MCU at some point, so I didn’t want to make him Aakon Guard #2, narrowing his chance of a more substantial role in the future,” Gunn wrote.

Gunn says he’s always liked the character of Wonder Man, and could easily see Fillion in the part of the “douchey actor/superhero.” Gunn clarified that Fillion is not a douche, but just very good at playing one. Anyone who’s seen him on Alan Tudyk’s Con Man can certainly attest to that.
