The first look at Tom Hardy in his role as Eddie Brock for the upcoming Venom film has released online via IGN. The image shows Eddie on the job somewhere working as a reporter.

IGN also debuted footage from Brazil Comic Con Experience, where Hardy and the film’s director, Ruben Fleisher, allowed fans in the room a look at the sets. The panel also discussed the storylines that the film will be primarily based on – Lethal Protector and Planet of the Symbiotes. Both storylines feature Brock as more of an antihero than a villain and explore his relationship with the symbiote.

“I just wanted to say that I give you my word of honor that I’m going to do everything that I can to deliver the best Venom that I possibly can muster,” Hardy said at the panel.

Sony’s Venom film is scheduled to arrive in theaters on October 5, 2018.
