Once Hardy's character starts feeling feverish, it's not long before we see the symbiote begin to take hold as Eddie Brock struggles to hold on to his own identity.

And of course, by the end we get the final pay off with Tom Hardy's Venom in his full glory.

Despite Hardy - who previously played Bane in Batman flick The Dark Knight Rises - taking up yet another villainous role, it seems he's more of a superhero in real life.

Last year it was reported that the Taboo actor chased after a moped thieves back in April, and caught them too!

According to The Sun, the star came across two thieves who tried to make off with a moped in Richmond, London before running after them and yelling: "i caught the c**t!".

Arun Pullen, 22 - who was witness at the scene recalled: “It was mental – like he’d switched to superhero mode in an action movie. Two boys on the nicked moped had jumped a red light and smashed into a car. 

“Tom must have been walking down the road. He went off like a shot in pursuit and looked furious. If the kid had been dumb enough to resist I reckon Tom would have given him a good hiding.”

All in a day's work for Tom Hardy.
