With the announcement of Andy Serkis as director of Venom 2, fans are focusing their attention to the first film to glean any clues about the sequel. This week, another new piece of news about the film emerged, with original star Michelle Williams confirming that she will be returning.
In an interview with Yahoo (via ComicBook.com), Williams confirmed with a simple “I’m in” that she would be returning to Venom 2 as Anne Weying. Subsequently, she spoke positively on Serkis’ directing, saying:
“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.”
Before taking a role as director of Venom 2, Serkis achieved fame as the motion capture actor of such characters as The Lord of the Rings’ Gollum, The Planet of the Apes’ Caesar, and Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Supreme Leader Snoke. He has also served as a second unit director on The Hobbit and the main director of Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle.
Little information is available as of yet about Venom 2, though, based on clues from the last film and information on Serkis’ Instagram, it seems possible that the sequel will see Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy) as a vigilante anti-hero in San Francisco, with a probable reappearance of Carnage (Woody Harrelson).
In any case, we’re glad to hear that Williams is returning for the film--now we’ll wait and see if Venom 2 will shape up to be any better than its predecessor.
