It seems that Tom Hardy will not only go down in history as an actor, but also for serving as inspiration for a group of scientists at Murdoch University (Australia) to name a new species of archinid. The study published in ‘Evolutionary Systematics’ states that this particular spider is classified as a new monotypic Australian genus of the family Araneidae Clerck. This terrifying being has been baptized as ‘Venomius tomhardyi’, a name that, as you may have deduced, arises from the combination of Venom and Tom Hardy.the Marvel character within the Sony branch played by Steven Knight’s favorite actor.
Pedro Castanheira, a fellow at Murdoch University in Perth and co-author of the study, says it is a key discovery: “Will be of utmost importance to conservation management plans and the continuation of the ten-year plan for taxonomy and biosystematics in Australia and New Zealand“. As detailed, the research to find these new species began in 2005 and it has not been until now that such a significant result has been found. The ‘Venomius tomhardyi’ is very difficult to find because it hides for so long. the day between the branches of the trees completely lined with silk, and at night, due to its dark tones, it is not easy to find it. Why were you inspired by Venom to name it? Because the species in question has a fairly large black abdomen and some curious light-colored spots, with a very particular eye shape.
Remember that Venom 3 is underway with Kelly Marcel directing and Tom Hardy back as star. In theory, it is the last film in which the actor will star alone as the particular Marvel Studios symbiote. After his brief passage through Spider-Man: No Way Home, it is believed that over time the artist could end up joining the Sinister Six initiative that Sony plans to confront Spider-Man (we don’t know which one, because the multiverse offers endless possibilities). For now the only thing we know is that the installment will be released in 2024, although everything could vary taking into account that the actors’ strike continues to rage in Hollywood.
