Hardy, who previously starred in Dunkirk and Mad Max: Fury Road, plays the sharp-toothed title character and his human alter-ego, reporter Eddie Brock.

“The depiction of Venom, I think, has been extremely faithful to the comics,” Hardy said at a press conference in Moscow to promote the movie.

“If we look at some of the images directly from comic book, they haven’t deviated in any,” he added. “If anything they’ve recreated certain elements accurately from comics book.”

Venom is scheduled to start rolling out in worldwide theatres on October 3. It debuts in the United States and Canada on October 5.
