Back in 2018, a delightful surprise was smuggled inside what would otherwise appear to be just another rote comic book movie. It was Tom Hardy’s performance in Venom, playing a San Francisco journalist, Eddie Brock, who becomes the host body for an alien symbiote affectionately known as Venom.

As the possessed Eddie and the voice of Venom, Hardy’s funny, freewheeling and frequently unhinged performance felt like an alien parasite inside a Marvel movie itself.
