Venom’s Tom Hardy Clarifies ‘Misunderstood’ Comments About Cut Scenes

When Tom Hardy said his favorite scenes were cut from Venom, the actor apparently meant fun, improvisational moments, not sequences that are critical to the story or character. So, there’s no need to #ReleaseTheTomHardyCut.

After his comment that “There are, like, 30, 40 minutes worth of scenes that aren’t in this movie” spread rapidly online, the actor insisted Monday during Venom‘s Hollywood premiere that he was misinterpreted.

“I’m talking [from] an actor’s point of view,” he told IGN. “So what I’m saying is I had a lot of time improvising and a lot of freedom to play with Venom. So in honesty there’s probably about seven hours or more worth of footage of me playing as Venom and enjoying myself.” Hardy added that he had “a lot of fun” doing improv with the character, but elaborated that he and the other executive producers “know full well that has nothing to do with what’s in that story” and stated that “everything we wanted is in the story.”

Hardy added, “This movie is awesome. Everything we want is in it. Everything I want is in it. And more. And I’m just saying if I didn’t get my song and dance routine in it, that’s nothing to cry about, but I may have enjoyed that. So if there’s a sequel, hopefully, I can sing and dance in that.”

The actor is signed on to play Eddie Brock in three Sony films, but Venom‘s box office performance this weekend will likely go a long way in determining whether he’ll have a chance to sing and dance in a sequel.

Opening Friday nationwide, director Ruben Fleishcer’s Venom stars Tom Hardy, Michelle Williams, Riz Ahmed, Scott Haze, Reid Scott, Jenny Slate, Woody Harrelson, Sope Aluko, Scott Deckert, Marcella Bragio, Michelle Lee, Mac Brandt, Christian Convery, Sam Medina and Ron Cephas Jones.
