Venom is a 2018 superhero film about the Marvel Comics character of the same name.
It is the first film in Sony's Spider-Man Universe (SSU) and is directed by Ruben Fleischer.
Tom Hardy plays Eddie Brock and Venom alongside Michelle Williams, Riz Ahmed, Scott Haze, and Reid Scott.
Like most of these types of films, you have to suspend your belief in reality and just go with the plot. Venom is no different!
What Is Venom About?
Quick recap for you. A dodgy lab sends a probe into space looking for lifeforms. The probe comes back with four of them.
Eddie Brock is a journalist who discovers that the lab is testing on humans and wants to break the story. So, wiht the help of one of the scientists, Dora Skirth, he breaks into the lab.
There he sees a homeless woman being used as a test subject, and when he tries to rescue her, the lifeform passes from her to him, without him knowing.
The lifeform is Venom, and it gives Brock some pretty cool superhero features. It also promises not to kill him if he helps it.

Who Is The Voice Of Venom?
Surprisngly Tom Hardy is the voice of Venom. He gave the two characters, Brock and Venom, distinct and separate accents and sounds.
He gave Brock an “aw-shucks American accent” while using a “James Brown lounge lizard” voice for Venom, and then that was later edited to sound more sinister.
In addition to Tom hardy, Brad Venable provided additional voiceover for Venom's pain and grunting sounds.
