‘Venom’ News, ‘Gambit’ Villain and More! – ComicCorp News

Any Serkis Reveals Venom Filming Techniques – Andy Serkis is no stranger to motion capture work, as that’s been his primary bread and butter dating back to “The Lord of the Rings” series. Serkis seems to reveal that a lot of Venom will be CGI, as he goes on to talk about the process;

The time has come that people understand that performance capture is a technology, not a genre of acting. Acting is acting, and the more actors – like Steve Zahn… and Karin Konoval who plays Maurice in ‘War For The Planet of the Apes’ – the more A-list actors that come on board, like Mark Rylance playing The BFG, or a lot of actors in the new Marvel films… Tom Hardy is playing a new character using performance capture. It all points up ‘what is the nature of acting?’ and there is no difference between acting wearing a costume and make up, or wearing a motion capture suit. That’s plain and simple, it just needs awarding bodies to understand that.

Gamibt Villain Hinted? – It seems like this is the year of the long awaited comic movies. “Venom” is coming out soon, and it appears as though “Gamibt” is happening after all. The casting call for the film seems to hint at a major villain too.
