'Venom' movie reportedly adds four-time Oscar nominee Michelle Williams

Michelle Williams is reportedly in talks to join Sony's Venom film opposite Tom Hardy.

Venom is being directed by Zombieland's Ruben Fleischer from a script written by Jeff Pinkner and Scott Rosenberg.

Per Variety, Williams would be taking the role of "a district attorney and possibly Hardy's love interest". Sony declined to comment. We learned back in August that Emmy Award victor Riz Ahmed is also reportedly in talks to join the cast of Venom.

Sounds like Michelle Williams is ready to swing into the Marvel universe.

In May, Hardy was announced to play the villain on Twitter by Sony Pictures and will be part of Sony's Marvel Universe - which exists outside of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Williams would be a strong choice for this role, and if she gets it, it will be very interesting to see how she plays off of Hardy.

The original report notes that studio execs and Fleischer "had been meeting with multiple actresses for the part for the past month" and "given all the positive input" on the recently released trailer for Ridley Scott's All the Money in the World, which stars Williams opposite Bradley Cooper, they made a decision to move forward with adding the actress to the film's call sheet. In fact, it's quite likely that Michele Williams take on the role of Ann Weying, who in the comics became the "Bride of Venom" a.k.a She-Venom, and was even teased in The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Matt Tolmach and Avi Arad will produce.

"Venom" marks the first time a Spider-Man villain will be getting their own standalone movie but the character did appear in Sam Raimi's "Spider-Man 3" which he was played by Topher Grace.

Sony has set the film, which will be called Venom, a release date of 5 October 2018.
