Tom Hardy Fights in New Venom Set Photos, But It Isn't With Carnage

Tom Hardy was spotted filming a fight scene for Venom with Scott Haze, but the latter isn't Carnage. Sony is positioning one of Marvel's most popular antiheroes as the cornerstone of their superhero universe. Sony has been looking to start a cinematic universe of their own for years, and continues to do so despite their most recent success, Spider-Man: Homecoming. With a star like Hardy in the leading role, Sony is hoping to capitalize on the craving for more R-rated superhero content.

The project quickly came together over the course of this year, and filming is currently underway. One of the biggest questions surrounding the film is who will play Carnage, another symbiote previously confirmed to be included. Once Scott Haze joined the cast, many thought he could fit the mold. Now, with the two actors spotted fighting on set, Haze reportedly won't be a host to that symbiote.

Just Jared shared new set photos from Venom of Tom Hardy and Scott Haze filming a fight scene. If there is a presence of a symbiote, it isn't seen in these photos and would only come from Hardy. The Wrap's Umberto Gonzalez is reporting Haze isn't playing Carnage, so these pictures are not the beginning of a Venom/Carnage fight. Instead, Hardy's Eddie Brock is sticking to more traditional fighting.
