Makes Statement

Hardy reveals McGregor inspired his character in the upcoming film, ‘Venom’. Hardy plays the character of Eddie Brock who transforms into Spider-Man’s arch nemeses, Venom, after his body is infiltrated by an evil alien symbiote. He says the role was excting because it’s a double act. He sees Brock as:

A mixture of Woody Allen and Conor McGregor: tortured neurosis but also bravado.
