Hot on the heels of news that Andy Serkis will be stepping behind the camera for the sequel to the surprise comic book movie hit Venom, we have word on at least one returning cast member joining Tom Hardy for another round of symbiote action.
Michelle Williams, who was a perplexing but welcome addition to the first Venom movie, has confirmed that she will be back for the sequel. Does that mean Venom 2 will end up having She-Venom come back for some more smooching with Eddie Brock?

Or is he just a really big fan of Andy Serkis pictures?

After Venom raked in over $855 million worldwide, there was no way Sony Pictures would pass on a sequel to the wildly successful Spider-Man spin-off.

In summation, if all movie critics were 16, there would be no negative Venom criticism.

Venom is available on digital download today before hitting Blu-ray and DVD next week.

You likely could’ve guessed this, but Venom director Ruben Fleischer has made it perfectly clear: Kevin Feige and Marvel Studios had nothing to do with Venom. Fleischer is quick to add that he hopes one day, Feige and the MCU will play a hand in Venom‘s future. For now, though, Tom Hardy‘s brain-eating slime monster is on his own.
