After a lot of anticipation, fans finally have their first look at Tom Hardy in Sony's Venom solo film.
The photo provided a rather simple look at Hardy's version of Eddie Brock, with him standing in plain clothes and holding some sort of book. After some inspection, the photo revealed a pretty big hint at what to expect for the film. But for those who were expecting the "first look" to be of Hardy in the Venom suit, the photo might have been seen as a little underwhelming.
As you would expect, fans have had quite a response to the photo, and have been expressing their emotions online. Some are excited about the upcoming solo venture, while others are making pretty great comparisons to Spider-Man 3's version of Eddie Brock.
Here's a round-up of some of our favorite tweets about the first look at Venom.
I already know what Tom Hardy looks like you twits, I want to see #Venom— Cheetos Didn't Deserve This (@SatyrBagnat) January 12, 2018
Am I the only one who is ticked by the fact that our first look at Tom Hardy in #Venom is COMPLETELY INDISTINGUISHABLE from a casual photo of Hardy on a Tuesday? What is that garbage?— Mike Adkins (@EarthNerdAdkins) January 11, 2018
The first look at #Venom isn’t really a first look. In fact, you could probably be taken anywhere. Just get Tom Hardy to wear a bracelet, give him a book, and take a picture, and put it on the Internet people will go crazy.— Milmiskew (@Milmiskew) January 12, 2018
you can tell Venom is a Bad Dude because of the bracelets he's wearing pic.twitter.com/pMctpScj2o— Britt Hayes (@MissBrittHayes) January 11, 2018
