Three new cast members join Tom Hardy in Sony’s Venom movie

October 4th, 2017 by Marc Comments

It looks like Tom Hardy’s Venom is getting a pretty impressive cast together.

The movie will be produced by Sony and directed by Zombieland’s Ruben Fleischer and, although based on the famous Spider-man villain, will not feature Spider-man.

As for the cast? Well, joining Hardy will be Rogue One star Riz Ahmed who will play ‘a popular Marvel Character’ along with Brokeback Mountain star Michelle Williams who will play a district attorney and possibly Hardy’s love interest.

They will be joined by Aardvark’s Jenny Slate who is set to play a scientist in the movie.

And that’s all we know for now…


Venom is set to hit cinemas on October 5th, 2018.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
