London, October 12 (EFE). – As if recent Don Quixote, British actor Tom Hardy (London, 1977) takes on the role of journalist Eddie Brock and supervillain Venom in “Venom: Let there be carnage” (“Venom: There will be slaughter”) the second installment of the Marvel saga that arrives to Spain on Friday.
The character of Cervantes and his famous novel was the inspiration for this film by actor and director Andy Serkis and has a small reference in the film, since then, according to Hardy in an interview with Evie, the pair formed Quijote and Sancho. And Eddie and Venom share the same essence.
“The two were very different beings. One is real and the other is fiction, but they kept having adventures together because they got along with each other,” Hardy says.
The venom is a symbiotic being – a black color, sticky texture that “settles” in other people’s beings – and it arrived on Earth during an alien attack, where, after being picked up by labs for experiments, it ended up merging with the human body of reporter Eddie Brock during one of his investigations. .
In this way, Venom equipped Brock with supernatural powers and special abilities, thus beginning his strange and stormy relationship between love and hate, which already cost him in the first film the love of his Dulcinea: Anne Weying (Michelle Williams).
“Venom: Let There Be Carnage” continues the common thread that was highlighted during the post-credits scene in Part 1, in which the character of serial killer Cletus Kasady, played by Woody Harrelson, plays an antagonistic role in this sequel as “Carnage.” “.
In Hardy’s opinion, the cliched that the sequels never did well in “Venom: Let there be Carnage” didn’t materialize, as he considers it “better than the first” and trusts viewers to think so too. After the film “Tomatazos”, which was shot by critics, the debut of “Venom” appeared.
“I’m so proud of her and what Andy (Serkis) and the rest of the team were able to do by seeing the movie,” which delves deeper into the emotional side of Hardy and Harrelson’s characters.
Before filming the first part, Hardy had already called his good friend Serkis to talk about the “phantom” Venom, so he didn’t hesitate to turn to him years later to suggest, this time, that he take the lead in a sequel to the movie.
Serkis did not hesitate to accept the project, because, he told Efe, upon reading the script, he felt it was “the right piece to join” with Hardy, who praised him for his performance in the first installment.
In addition, he adds, sitting in the director’s chair is much easier as an actor, because it can create an “atmosphere in which actors feel comfortable working.”
The coronavirus pandemic has forced a shutdown of filming arriving a year later than initially planned, but Hardy admits he learned a lot throughout the process, such as that “communication is key” and perhaps that’s what’s planned. What ends up coming out.
In any case, Venom and Hardy are back three years later with a new installment of fantasy adventures, although instead of facing the windmills of La Mancha, they will have to do so with super alien villains on the streets of the American city of San Francisco. background. the background. EFE
