Michelle Williams is officially set to return for Venom 2. Williams often appears in critically acclaimed films, and has even been nominated for four Academy Awards, but she also appeared in her first superhero movie just last year.
Previously, Williams cast doubt on her return to the Spider-Man multiverse while speaking with MTV News. "They have to pay me either way", she joked. However, since that time, it would seem as if Williams has summoned new energy for the follow-up, especially now that Serkis is involved.
"I'm such a fan of Andy's, and I'm so inspired by what he's been able to accomplish", Williams beamed while speaking with Yahoo! "He's so gifted in such a specific way, and I'm very excited to learn from him and be around him."
Although Venom is commonly known one of Spider-Man's greatest enemies seen in the Marvel Comics, the fang-ridden creature has taken up a new role in recent years as a hero in it’s own right. Venom isn’t actually a character in itself but in fact a sentient alien Symbiote which survives by attaching to a human host, and when the host happens to be Tom Hardy (Eddie Brock) it takes up a new, quite likeable form of anti-hero.
