Michelle Williams Reportedly Playing Ann Weying in ‘Venom’
Though it’s currently in production, very little information has been confirmed about Sony’s Venom.
What we do know is that Tom Hardy will star as Eddie Brock, the reporter who becomes bonded to the symbiote.
Now IndieWire is reporting that Michelle Williams will play Ann Weying aka She-Venom.
In the comics, Ann is Eddie Brock’s ex-wife. She helped Spider-Man by offering him information on Eddie, then talked Eddie out of bonding with the symbiote. Later she became bonded with the creature and killed several men.
It is unclear what changes Sony will make to the character’s backstory and exactly what connection she will have to Eddie.
In addition to Williams, Venom also co-stars Riz Ahmed, who is reportedly playing Dr. Carlton Drake, Jenny Slate and possibly Woody Harrelson.
The film is part of Sony’s Spider-Man spinoff universe that includes Silver and Black.
Directed by Ruben Fleischer, Venom is set to be rated R and slithers into theaters Oct. 5.
