Luckily For Tom Hardy, He Has Topher Grace's Blessing To Play Venom

It'll be hard for Hardy to top Grace's performance in Spider-Man 3.

Topher Grace's turn as Venom in Sam Raimi's Spider-Man 3 is the height of villainy. Ever since the film's release in 2007, Grace's Venom has topped every Greatest Villain list ever released. This all said, it's a blessing that Grace gave his own blessing to Tom Hardy to portray the villain anti-hero in the upcoming Venom movie.

"I understand Sam's interpretation, which was to do a dark version of Tobey [Maguire]'s character," he says. "I was thrilled because I was such a fan of the character, but I was aware of how it was different from what I had grown up reading. I thought it was cool, but I'm really excited to see [Tom Hardy's version]. That's the character I grew up with."

Venom, directed by Ruben Fleischer, is set to release October 5, 2018.
