Tom Hardy shared a new poster for his upcoming film Venom's IMAX release on the occasion of his birthday. The Marvel anti-hero, who originated in comics as a Spider-Man villain in 1988, gets his own standalone film with Hardy playing Eddie Brock and the alien symbiote Venom.

A grittier, more violent and more complicated character than his Marvel brethren, Venom's look in the poster bears similarity to his comic book avatar from the '90s with Venom's tongue wagging in all its exaggerated glory.
