With Andy Serkis now recently confirmed to be directing Venom 2, now one of the stars of the first movie has revealed that they’ll be back to work under Serkis.
Speaking to Yahoo Movies, Michelle Williams confirmed that she will be returning as Anne Weying in the sequel. That character, of course, is the ex-wife of Tom Hardy’s Eddie Brock. Hardy likewise will be returning to action in the Venom follow-up.
Discussing Serkis being behind the camera, Williams enthused, “I’m such a fan of Andy’s, and I’m so inspired by what he’s been able to accomplish. He’s so gifted in such a specific way, and I’m very excited to learn from him and be around him.”
The current plan for Venom 2 is for Woody Harrelson to take on the nefarious moniker of the maniacal Carnage. Harrelson’s Cletus Kasady made a super brief appearance during the post-credits of Venom, and Kasady will bond with a symbiote of his own and become Carnage in the sequel.
At this stage, it looks as if Venom 2 could be eyeing an October 2020 release.
