British actor Tom Hardy said he believes his new superhero movie “Venom” remains faithful to the Marvel Comics books in its portrayal of an investigative journalist whose body becomes the host for an alien with enhanced powers.

Hardy, who previously starred in “Dunkirk” and “Mad Max: Fury Road,” plays the sharp-toothed title character and his human alter-ego, reporter Eddie Brock.

“The depiction of Venom, I think, has been extremely faithful to the comics,” Hardy said at a press conference in Moscow on Friday to promote the movie.

“If we look at some of the images directly from comic book, they haven’t deviated in any,” he added. “If anything they’ve recreated certain elements accurately from comics book.”

“Venom” is scheduled to start rolling out in worldwide theatres on Oct 3, reports Reuters.

It debuts in the United States and Canada on Oct 5.
