In the comics, Venom evolves from Spider-man, but Marvel-Sony tussle led to changes in the plotline. But it will be fascinating to watch a face-off between Spider-Man and Venom.”
Andy Serkis will direct the sequel with Tom Hardy returning as our antihero, Eddie Brock aka Venom. Michelle Williams plays his estranged wife, Anne Weying. Harrelson returns as Cletus Kasady, the serial killer who bonds to the Carnage symbiote, after debuting in the role in the mid-credits scene in Venom.
