Fonzo photo

We’ve already seen a number of behind-the-scenes photos of actor Tom Hardy in costume and full make-up as Al Capone in his new gangster movie Fonzo, but director Josh Trank (Chronicle, Fantastic Four) has shared another Fonzo photo. In keeping with his usual tradition, Hardy will be adopting a bizarre voice to play this character, and his inspiration for the voice comes from – wait for it – Looney Tunes mainstay Bugs Bunny. Check out the photo and read more about Hardy’s odd vocal choice below. Read More »

tom hardy venom voice

When Tom Hardy uttered his first line in the Venom trailer, it was met with a universal “…Huh?” Was Hardy doing his best Terrence Howard impression? Is this what he thought an intrepid journalist sounded like? And mostly, why?

Hardy is the rare kind of actor who seems to hate his own face and voice. And though that has brought him acclaim in the past, in films like Mad Max: Fury Road or The Dark Knight Rises, this is one acting choice that will probably only earn him a few raised eyebrows. But hey, let him tell you about his process. Maybe we’ll come around to it once we read what he has to say about that truly weird voice.

venom trailer

A new Venom trailer is here, and it has everything fans of the character could want: slime, tongues, and Tom Hardy talking to himself. The film is part of Sony’s Spider-Verse (or is it the Venom-Verse? Answer unclear), a series of films which aren’t connected to Marvel Studios’ Spider-Man films, like Homecoming and the upcoming Far From Home. Confused? Don’t worry! None of this matters. Watch the Venom trailer below!

Venom! He’s got a big tongue! And he showed up at Comic-Con 2018 in Hall H. Or at least, his movie did. The actual Venom didn’t show because he is a fictional character from the funny pages. And yet, he has his own feature film now! Here’s what went down during the Venom Comic-Con 2018 panel.

the dark knight rises

(Welcome to The Dark Knight Legacy, a series of articles that explore Christopher Nolan’s superhero masterpiece in celebration of its 10th anniversary.)

(The Unpopular Opinion is a series where a writer goes to the defense of a much-maligned film or sets their sights on a movie seemingly beloved by all. In this edition: we sing the praises of Christopher Nolan’s somewhat misunderstood Dark Knight follow-up The Dark Knight Rises.)

I see a beautiful city and a brilliant people rising from this abyss.” – Jim Gordon (and Charles Dickens).

How do you follow up The Dark Knight? The movie changed the face of superhero cinema, and became almost instantly iconic. Another sequel wasn’t just required, it was practically demanded by audiences. Director Christopher Nolan had several choices – he could forge ahead with a sequel that copied the layout of The Dark Knight, he could create something completely new, or he could walk away entirely.

To Nolan, the third option seemed most appealing. Despite all the success, despite all the acclaim, the director wasn’t exactly keen making a third film in his Batman series. But over time, Nolan began to form a plan. A plan that seems almost insane in our current age of never-ending superhero sagas: he would craft a conclusion. A film that would actually bring the story he started back with Batman Begins to a close. That film was The Dark Knight Rises.

venom sequels

Tom Hardy is an Oscar-nominated actor who has already played one of the most famous Batman villains of all time. So why did he sign up to play a Spider-Man villain in a movie that doesn’t even feature Spider-Man? That was the question on many people’s lips when Hardy was first announced to star in Venom, the first film in Sony’s Spider-Man-adjacent cinematic universe.

But while Hardy often prefers to let his work speak for itself (or at least, prefers to speak about it behind a mask), the Venom actor is finally revealing what drew him to this symbiotic antihero.
