"Well, if they didn't make it into the film..."
"He was pretty much in the driving seat for a lot of it, and I did use him as my anthology and my mythology wizard", Hardy said. Since that sounds an very bad lot like a red flag, IGN took to asking Hardy about the quote at the premiere for Venom last night.
It was widely reported during the film's production that director Ruben Fleischer was shooting with an R-rating in mind, hoping to produce a hit along the same lines as the Deadpool series or Logan. As I posted yesterday, Tom Hardy stated in an interview with YouTube channel "ComicsExplained" that his favorite scenes to film from Venom were in the 30-40 minutes cut from the film. "They just never made it in". I'm talking as an actor.
Unimpressed audiences - who had attended the first preview screenings - dropped the bombshell when they shared their first impression of the movie. Yeah! But the truth is everything we want is in the story, everything I want is in the story, and more.
"My son came to me with a specific character that he absolutely fell in love with and then I started to take a look at it myself and then, as if by magic, a script appeared on the horizon which was awesome".
Riz Ahmed plays inventor Carlton Drake in the movie, who is experimenting with the alien "symbiote" that invades the physiology of Hardy's investigative reporter Eddie Brock. Would you yourself want to see a seven hour cut of the film, even if it included Venom doing a song and dance routine?
It seems the stars of Venom are being unusually blunt as they spruik the movie in the lead-up to its release.
