Tom Hardy is not one to do things halfway so the fact that he’s training like a absolute maniac to play Venom in the upcoming spin-off from Marvel’s Spider-Man film franchise comes as little surprise.

According to Metro

With filming already underway in Atlanta, the Dark Knight Rises star has been going beast mode, working out five times a week and sometimes twice a day with trainer Nathan Jones and Mark Mene in preparation for the role.

Coming Soon gives this plot summary for the movie…

Tom Hardy, who is said to be a “Venom” fan, will play Eddie Brock, the character who first became Venom. First appearing in the comic book series as an alien costume worn by Spider-Man in Marvel‘s “The Amazing Spider-Man” #252 in 1984, it was several years before the creature left Peter Parker and merged with photographer Eddie Brock, forming the antihero known as Venom. “Venom” is to usher in a host of movies from Sony’s Marvel and Spider-Man-based universe of characters.

Here’s a few more looks at Hardy going full beast mode in his training…

Venom is scheduled to premiere on October 5th, 2018.
