Tom Hardy says his favourite scenes didn't make it into Venom

WATCH Riz Ahmed makes Venom star Tom Hardy and Jimmy Kimmel recreate Amrish Puri's'Mogambo Khush Hua dialogue

Hardy has said that his version of Eddie is inspired by UFC fighter Conor McGregor. "Sorry to say that #Venom is pretty much a complete failure", wrote one critic.

And more than one reviewer compared Venom unfavorably to Marvel Studios' critically acclaimed and commercially successful Black Panther, which came out in February, including Todd McCarthy of the Hollywood Reporter.

Grimacing manically and dripping with flop-sweat, Hardy gives the antithesis of a modern superhero performance.

The first scene that appears in the middle of the ending credits sees investigative journalist Eddie - accompanied by his live-in alien chum Venom - driving up to the maximum security prison at San Quentin on his motorbike with a leather jacket on. I would hate to have to do press for this movie.

When Sony Pictures lifted the review embargo for Venom on Tuesday evening, critics were quick to publish their formal thoughts on the Tom Hardy-starrer.

"Tom Hardy is and always will be a great actor, and I laughed a lot - but I'm not sure whether that was intentional or not".

He then replied: "Things that aren't in [it]". You know what I mean? "[Venom is] just another bit of secondary Marvel IP who scowls and growls, and never shows us why he should be headlining his own movie". The result, as directed by Washington native Ruben Fleischer ("Zombieland"), can play like a one-man buddy picture that summons comparisons to "Liar, Liar" and "All of Me" - if either of those body-takeover comedies were set against a middling Marvel superhero-film narrative circa 2004.

Times says it was wrong to have writer on Kavanaugh story
Kavanaugh has declined to comment on whether he threw beer or ice or anything whatsoever at Cozzolino, in the wake of the report. The paper said, in retrospect, it should have assigned a newsroom reporter to the story but said it stood behind its veracity.

Williams' character Anne is a lawyer who dates Eddie before finding out he carries the Venom mantle.

Madame Tussauds' unveils its new wax figure of British actor Tom Hardy which has a soft warm chest and a beating heart, in London, Britain, February 8, 2018.

And Bryan Bishop of the Verge said that Venom is "a train wreck of a movie, mixing and matching wildly dissonant tones, weird plot contrivances, and a truly unique lead performance". That being said, Hardy's response here doesn't really clarify much.

Whether it's successful remains to be seen, but before we get to the Venom movie that does exist, I wanted to take a look back at the other attempted adaptations of this character over the years.

He said: "Things that aren't in this movie".

Venom, a feature-length movie about a Spider-Man villain, which does not feature Spider-Man, is out October 3, and we'll soon find out if this massive gamble of a movie pays off.
