Riz Ahmed in Talks to Join VENOM

With Sony currently working away on their Venom movie, the Eddie Brock-centric picture is in talks with Riz Ahmed for a significant role in the film.

As per Variety, the Rogue One actor is in negotiations to join Venom, with sources saying that the role in question is that of a popular Marvel character. Of course, with Carnage previously believed to be the villain of the piece, there’s already been speculation that Ahmed could well be getting set to play this most nefarious of maniacal bad guys.

On that front, though, the current word is that Ahmed’s role would not be Cletus Kasady, aka Carnage, although he was considered for that part before certain script changes took place. Then again, it’s also being reported that Carnage is indeed still to be featured in the film, so we’ll all just have to wait and see as this continues to develop.

With Tom Hardy on board to star and Zombieland’s Ruben Fleischer to direct, Venom is currently booked in for an October 5th, 2018 release. As ever, expect more on this as we get it.
