“Venom” tells the story of Eddie Brock (Hardy), a journalist investigating the mysterious Life Foundation. The foundation’s leader, Carlton Drake (Riz Ahmed), wants to create a new race of human-symbiote hybrids. When Eddie encounters one of these alien symbiotes, he begins his transformation into the alluringly powerful Venom. “That power, it’s not completely awful,” says Eddie.
