Videos: New Videos And Photos From The Set Of Venom

 These are some recent set videos and photos for Venom, which is currently shooting in Atlanta. The videos feature Tom Hardy fighting Scott Haze, who is playing one of the villains. Speculation has Haze playing one of the Life Foundation's five Guardians that were featured in the Venom: Lethal Protector comic book miniseries. It was a 1993 six-issue miniseries written by David Michelinie and followed Venom in San Francisco after he and Spider-Man formed a truce. There, he is hunted down by the Life Foundation, who want the Venom symbiote for their evil purposes. The Life Foundation ends up creating five new symbiotes including Scream, Phage, Riot, Lasher, and Agony. 

Michelle Williams also spoke To Screen Rant about her role, seemingly confirming the rumor that she is playing Ann Weying. 

SR: "Is Venom comparable to anything else you’ve done previously, and what can you tell us about Anne Weying?" 

Michelle Williams: "I’ve done one other movie where I was asked to track a tennis ball with my eyes and pretend it was a giant creature thing. Not my favorite thing in the world to do, but it is a skill set and I’m trying to learn it. And uh, she’s, geez, what can I tell you? Not too much right now."

Tom Hardy stars as Eddie Brock AKA Venom, the original host of the alien Venom symbiote and one of Spider-man's popular supervillains in the comics. Ahmed is playing an unknown character, it was initially believed that he would be playing the arch nemesis Carnage. Sony has since shot down those rumors. Williams will be playing a district attorney and a possible love interest for Hardy. It is believed that the character may be Anne Weying, who was Eddie Brock's (Venom) wife in the comics and eventually came into contact with the symbiote to become She-Venom. Slate is playing a scientist, with nothing else known at this time about her character. Veep actor Reid Scott, Scott Haze, and Woody Harrelson also joined the cast in unspecified roles.

Venom is being written by Scott Rosenberg (Jumanji) and Jeff Pinkner (The Dark Tower), it will be directed by Ruben Fleischer, and is being produced by Avi Arad, Matt Tolmach, Amy Pascal, Palak Patel, and Eric Fineman. Sony has said that this will be a standalone film and will not play a part in the Spider-Man universe.
