The much-anticipated Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 video game recently made its debut on Playstation 5 to great acclaim. The new open-world superhero game premiered with an 8/10 score on and a 90 Metascore on Metacritic with a 9.0 user score. The big draw in the sequel to the hit game Marvel’s Spider-Man and its continuation, Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, is that Peter Parker gets an upgrade in powers thanks to the alien symbiote. The same symbiote is destined to create Venom out of Eddie Brock. The Venom character is voiced by the Candyman himself, Tony Todd.

From one Venom to another, Tom Hardy took to his Instagram to give a little shout-out to the man who is lending his menacing pipes to the Spider-Man rogue. Hardy, who portrays Eddie Brock in the Venom movies as well as having his voice altered to be the alien alter-ego, posted a picture of Todd striking a cool pose with the brief caption, “Legend” with a fire emoji while tagging Todd’s official Instagram account.

As for Hardy’s newest entry in the series, Venom 3, the sequel to the previous hit films is currently waiting for the SAG-AFTRA strike to end in order to resume filming. Last summer, Hardy had also teased on his Instagram that the script for Venom 3 had been completed when he posted a picture of the cover page. The image of the cover didn’t display the title, but instead, a little doodle of the symbiote with the captions, “Here we go” and “Last Dance.” The cover also shows that the screenplay was written from a story that Hardy himself came up with along with the screenwriter Kelly Marcel. Marcel co-wrote the first film’s script with Jeff Pinker and Scott Rosenberg, then wrote Let There Be Carnage from a story Marcel created with Hardy.

Little is known about the plot, but Juno Temple and Chiwetel Ejiofor have signed on to join Hardy in undisclosed roles. In addition to writing the script, Marcel will be directing this entry following Ruben Fleischer and Andy Serkis, who each helmed a previous installment.
