VENOM 2018 : POSSESSED TOM HARDY & VENOM SYMBIOTE REVEALED..?

Published

on

As we know, Sony’s first “Spider-man Spin-off” project isn’t set to hit theaters until late 2018. But that hasn’t stopped images and set photos from appearing on the web. Many fans have been waiting to get a glimpse of what we can expect from Tom Hardy’s incarnation of Venom. Hardy’s MMA trainer let slip that Hardy will embody and turn into an “8’5 Beast.” Well that speculation has now seemed to be backed by artist Michael Frandsen. Who has released some Venom concept art to his social media, which depicts a sculpted Venom in all gray with his trademark razor sharp teeth and long tongue. Frandsen also credits Marvel Studios. The interesting tidbit to this, is Michael Frandsen’s webpage has him working on a secret project, due out in 2018…

This doesn’t necessarily mean these are concept images for ‘Venom.’ But the images look pretty comic book accurate and would be cool to see a finished product. Take a look below:

Also a video from the set of ‘Venom,’ shows what appears to be a “Possessed” Eddie Brock. Something seems to be taking control of Brock in the video. He slams a card door and seems to be getting pulled around by something controlling him.

‘Venom’ is an upcoming American superhero film based on the Marvel Comics character of the same name, produced by Columbia Pictures and distributed by Sony Pictures Releasing.

Set to hit theaters: October 5, 2018

Joaquin Phoenix Stares Into Your Soul As The Joker Via “il venerdì di repubblica” Cover

“Cinematic achievement on a high level.”

Director Todd Phillips has gone on the record stating, his film is going to piss off hardcore comic book fans. The upcoming ‘Joker’ movie will not follow any comic book plot lines or continuity for the villain, and will in fact be its very own stand alone film. With that being said, the movie is already garnering praise from select audiences. Cameron Bailey, co-head and artistic director of the Toronto International Film Festival, went on record with Toronto Sun, hailing the film as “Cinematic achievement on a high level.” Bailey continued on, saying:

“First of all it’s terrific. So it should play on our largest stage. But it’s a really original take on comic book movies and on the Joker character in particular. It’s not based on an existing story, it has one of the greatest actors in modern cinema, Joaquin Phoenix, in the lead, and Robert De Niro is in it as well, one of the best actors that has ever lived.”

Bailey, also went on to say, the film is “Very cinematic,” for a low budget feature.

“Has an interesting tone and approach to it. It’s set in the late ’70s, early ’80s and it feels like it was made then. It’s gritty in its look, it has references to Martin Scorsese’s filmmaking and it feels like a cinematic achievement on a high level. Although it’s working with very populist material, it has great ambition. That’s why it’s a Gala.”

Marvel’s ‘Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings’ To Reveal The One True Mandarin

‘Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings’ was announced at SDCC as part of Marvel’s upcoming phase 4 slate. It is set to be the third film in Phase 4 and will be released February 12, 2021. ‘Ten Rings’ will feature Shang-Chi ( Simu Liu ), a Kung-Fu Master, who will face off against, The Mandarin. You heard that right, THE MANDARIN. But not that Mandarin, The real Mandarin.

‘Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings’ will be the first Asian led Marvel film. It will follow the legendary martial artist on his quest to stop The Mandarin (Tony Leung) on his quest for world domination. The Mandarin is villain that many MCU fans know little about, especially after ‘Iron Man 3’ pulled the old bait and switch by having the Mandarin revealed to be an actor played by Ben Kingsley named Trevor Slattery, whose sole purpose was to divert Stark’s attention from the true villain of the film, Aldrich Killian.

Shang-Chi (Chinese: 尚氣; pinyin: shàng qì; literally: ‘rising of the spirit’) is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. The character was created by writer Steve Englehart and artist Jim Starlin, first appearing in Special Marvel Edition #15 (cover-dated December 1973) in the Bronze Age of Comic Books. Often referred to as the “Master of Kung Fu”, Shang-Chi is proficient in numerous unarmed and weaponry-based wushu styles, including the use of the gùn, nunchaku, and jian. In later years, he gains the power to create countless duplicates of himself, and joins the Avengers. -Wikipedia
