Tom Hardy says the film industry is 'superhero-movie heavy' after starring in an upcoming Marvel release.

Venom sees the actor play journalist Eddie Brock, who's given special powers by an alien creature.

He says the darkness of his role keeps the genre fresh in a marketplace 'saturated' with superhero stories.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en-gb"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">One week until <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/Venom?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#Venom</a> is unleashed. <a href="https://t.co/mTy8q34uxm">pic.twitter.com/mTy8q34uxm</a></p>&mdash; Venom Movie (@VenomMovie) <a href="https://twitter.com/VenomMovie/status/1045659388806135808?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">28 September 2018</a></blockquote>

“Obviously there’s a saturation at the moment, in the marketplace. We’re definitely superhero-movie heavy when you go to see big movies nowadays.

“What was nice about this one is it straddles the fence between the concept of what good and bad is and presents a flawed human being host to a flawed superhero.

“It’s definitely fresh for that, and that’s what’s exciting, as opposed to turning anything on its head. It’s not black and white, it’s about greys.

That hits the big screen on Wednesday.
