It was 2018 when Sony decided to get into the world of Marvel characters beyond Spider-Man and look at the world minus the web-slinging superhero. They found a flourishing space full of anti-heroes who weren't just mindless villains but men with stories. Enter Venom, starring Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock, who would go on to get his trilogy. If that is not enough, he was followed by Morbius in 2022 and Kraven The Hunter, which releases in December 2024. But before that is the summation of the Venom trilogy with Venom: The Last Dance, aka Venom 3. As we move towards the end of the game for the Symbiote drama, do you know the first movie did not come easy for Hardy, who ended up injuring both his knees?

When Tom Hardy Was Left Injured

Yes, you heard that right. Actors getting hurt on the sets of action movies is not a very new thing. We have seen this happen for years, and actors advocating for safety on sets. But no one can really predict what happens on sets of action movies where there is no day without risk, even with the most safe and secure arrangements. One such day came Tom Hardy’s way, who had suffered severe knee injuries that led to surgeries in both his knees. Read on to know everything you should about the same.

While Venom was released back in 2018, Tom Hardy kept his injuries a secret from the public eye and spoke about them for the first time in 2021 when he was promoting his Netflix film, Havoc. Talking to Esquire, he was discussing his excitement for the physicality of the movie, which he had been training for, for a while. He then went on to talk about the accident that happened on the sets of Venom that left the actor injured and needing surgeries in both knees.
