October 25th, 2019 by Marc Comments

Further to our report last week that Venom 2 was looking to cast villain Shriek (here), it looks like they have found the actress for the gig… and it’s a wonderful choice.

Yes, teaming up with retuning Tom Hardy as Venom and Woody Harrelson as Carnage in the Andy Serkis directed sequel, is 007 star, the beautiful and talented Naomie Harris is in talks to play Spider-Man villain Shriek in Sony’s “Venom 2,” with Tom Hardy returning as the titular anti-hero.

In the comics Shriek was “A drug dealer named Frances Barrison became the volatile Shriek after severe trauma allow her latent mutant powers to emerge. In the comics, those powers include sonic energy blasts, flight, and the ability to stir up dark and violent emotions in others.”

The character has a romantic relationship with Carnage, so it’s likely the duo will take on Hardy’s Venom in the movie.

Currently it looks like the sequel may be set for October 2020.

What say you all? Let me know…
