Michelle Williams has confirmed she will play the role of Anne Weying in the upcoming Venom movie led by Tom Hardy. In the comics, the character Anne Weying is Eddie Brock's ex-wife who eventually becomes the infamous character She-Venom! During an interview with ScreenRant, Williams confirmed her role in the Spider-Man spin-off:
We’re having fun. Um, we’re having fun. It’s, um, well for me it’s Tom (Hardy). I just thought, well, that guy knows what he’s doing. I’m just going to go steal some of his moves, figure out what he knows. I just wanted to, you know, you’re only as good as the people you play with and I really wanted to challenge myself with him as a partner.
Whether or not Weying's character arc introduces She-Venom on screen in this first of a planned Venom film trilogy has yet to be confirmed, but we suspect if not blatantly shown, her transformation will at least most likely be referenced.
