Tom Hardy To Use Motion-Capture In Venom

With filming commencing on the Spider-Man related film that might not feature the nerdy web-slinger, more news has surfaced on the Venom movie.

The king of performance capture Andy Serkis (the Lord of the Rings trilogy, King Kong, Black Panther) has revealed that actor Tom Hardy will be using motion-capture for Eddie Brock’s Venom. In an interview with Yahoo UK, he says:

“The time has come that people understand that performance capture is a technology, not a genre of acting … Acting is acting, and the more actors – like Steve Zahn… and Karin Konoval who plays Maurice in War For The Planet of the Apes – the more A-list actors that come on board, like Mark Rylance playing The BFG, or a lot of actors in the new Marvel films… Tom Hardy is playing a new character using performance capture. It all points up ‘what is the nature of acting?’ and there is no difference between acting wearing a costume and make up, or wearing a motion capture suit. That’s plain and simple, it just needs awarding bodies to understand that.”

This will be different from Topher Grace’s performance as Eddie Brock/ Venom in Spider-Man 3, which was released a decade ago.
