Variety is reporting that Michelle Williams is now in negotiations to join the cast of Venom.
It's further said Venom will start filming next month, with Ruben Fleischer as the director and Riz Ahmed also cast in a role, but previously said not be for Carnage. We learned back in August that Emmy Award victor Riz Ahmed is also reportedly in talks to join the cast of Venom. That film was initially expected to spawn a solo Venom movie, but the planned spinoff never materialized.
Williams is most-cognizable from her role on Dawson's Creek. The project is meant to launch Sony's Marvel Universe, which includes a project featuring Silver Sable and Black Cat. The movie will be Spider-Man-centric, but won't be related to the Spider-Man cinematic universe, which includes the recent Sony/Marvel Studios collaboration Spider-Man: Homecoming.
The Venom movie will likely take on numerous characteristics of how the spin-off was originally conceived at Sony back when it would have dovetailed into Andrew Garfield's The Amazing Spider-Man films.
Are you excited for Venom and would you like to see She-Venom?
Considered one of Spidey's greatest enemies, Venom made his first appearance in The Amazing Spider-Man #300. He originally set out to destroy Spider-Man, but subsequently becomes an ally, and appears alongside many other Marvel Comics' characters. In any event, this is certainly an excuse to take Venom to some darker places away from the MCU, much like the highly successful R-rated superhero films recently released by 20th Century Fox with Deadpool and Logan.
"Venom" is set to hit theaters on October 5, 2018.
