He admits in the interview that he knew little about the character Venom when he first read the script. "So I spoke to the only person I could really trust in this environment: my older boy," who was his source for all things comic books. Even though he could not share any plot points from the upcoming film, he did talk about the preparation that went into the starkly different personalities he is emulating in Venom.

Hardy said that playing Eddie Brock, the investigative journalist whose alter-ego becomes Venom, reminded him of Woody Allen's "tortured neurosis and all the humour that can come from that", Conor Mcgregor's "uber-violence but not all the talking" and Redman, the rapper's "out of control, living rent-free in his head."

The Dunkirk actor also had to go through a complete transformation to look and talk like Al Capone, for which he and the crew also shot on an average for 19 hours every day over the course of six weeks.

He also talked about wanting to produce, write as well as direct films — not just act in them. However, he also added, “What is it that draws you to the craft? At this age, I don’t know anymore. I’ve kind of had enough. If I’m being brutally honest, I want to go on with my life.”
