Venom sees daring journalist Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy) gain access to a controversial laboratory run by Dr. Carton Drake (Riz Ahmed) with the help of his girlfriend, Ann Weying (Michelle Williams).

Drake claims that he holds the key to human evolution, but Brock suspects he’s taking advantage of vulnerable people.

The two fight, and Brock’s life takes a drastic turn, when he’s exposed him to a symbiote which merges with his body.

Together, they are Venom, a monstrous mix of alien and human, with a taste for violence.

Brock finds himself becoming a true anti-hero, as he fights to direct the symbiote to only harm “bad people”.
