Watch Tom Hardy Getting Into Shape for 'Venom'

You're welcome.

If you've seen Warrior, Bronson, The Dark Knight Rises, or pretty much anything Tom Hardy's been in, you know that the man is no stranger to bulking up for a role.

The latest film to demand such a transformation is Venom, the sort-of-Marvel-spin-off that will see Hardy play one of Spiderman's most iconic villains, only in a film without Spiderman.

Filming is currently underway in Atlanta, and Hardy has been training up to five times a week (and sometimes twice a day) in MMA to prepare for the role, as his trainers, Nathan Jones and Mark Mene, shared below.
