For its part, the Venom Team said, "Venom called and you all answered! When we started this art activation, we knew that there were those out there who loved our complex and badass character as much as we do, but we never could have anticipated the number of fantastic pieces of creative that would be submitted. As the weeks went on, not only did we find ourselves with too many amazing submissions to choose from, but our very own Eddie Brock/Venom, played by Tom Hardy, fell in love with the submissions and started to promote them himself. As we came to the final days of the submission window, Tom wanted to express his love and appreciation for the fans of Venom by choosing the Selected Artists. As you all know, the world has enough superheroes…now it’s time for some Venom!"

Opening in Philippine cinemas and IMAX on Thursday, October 4, Venom is distributed by Columbia Pictures, local office of Sony Pictures Releasing International.

About Venom

One of Marvel’s greatest and most complex characters takes center stage as Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy) becomes the host for the alien symbiote Venom. As a journalist, Eddie has been trying to take down the notorious Life Foundation scientist Carlton Drake (Riz Ahmed) for years – an obsession that ruined his career and his relationship with his girlfriend, Anne (Michelle Williams). When one of Drake’s experiments – the alien Venom – merges with Eddie’s body, he suddenly has incredible new superpowers, and the chance to do just about whatever he wants. Twisted, dark, unpredictable, and fueled by rage, Venom leaves Eddie wrestling to control dangerous abilities that he also finds empowering and intoxicating. As Eddie and Venom need each other to get what they’re looking for, they become more and more intertwined — where does Eddie end and Venom begin?
