'Venom 2': Naomie Harris in Talks to Play Villain Shriek
OCTOBER 18, 2019 11:46AM by Aaron Couch
Tom Hardy has another antagonist to go against in the sequel from director Andy Serkis.

Tom Hardy's Venom will have his hands full in the sequel. Naomie Harris is in talks to play the villain Shriek in Venom 2.

The character rose to prominence in the 1990s during the big Spider-Man comic book event Maximum Carnage, which saw Spider-Man, Venom and an assortment of heroes go up against Carnage and a ragtag team of villains he'd assembled. Shriek is known for her sonic powers and was something of a love interest for Carnage.

Harris, who earned an Oscar nomination for Moonlight, next stars in the Thriller Black and Blue (Oct. 25) and will appear in the upcoming James Bond film, No Time to Die (April 8, 2020). The studio had no comment on her casting.

Andy Serkis is directing Venom 2, which in addition to Hardy has Michelle Williams back on the call sheet, as well as Woody Harrelson reprising his role as Venom villain Cletus Kasady, aka Carnage, whom he played in a last-minute cameo. Ruben Fleischer helmed 2018's Venom, which over-performed with $856 million at the global box office. Avi Arad, Matt Tolmach, Amy Pascal, and Hutch Parker are producing Venom 2 for Sony. Kelly Marcel wrote the script.

Harris is repped by Untitled, WME and Artists Partnership.

I didn't absolutely hate Venom like I guess some people did. I'm actually surprised it managed to elicit such strong feelings in anybody, good or bad. It washed over me with complete indifference, I forgot more than half the movie like an hour after I left the theater. Solid 4/10.

They should have just titled it "Lethal Protector" like the comic. Not digging that title at all.

Yeah, not really digging the title either. Too on the nose and cheesy sounding.

^^ Taking the Inception approach to subtle music, I see.

That looks fun! Nice to see them lean into the ridiculousness of the character even more. I'd take that over super-serious-superheroes any day.

Looks fine... if it were a movie made in 2005.

Huh? What about 2006?

Looks about as good as the first, which was surprisingly better than what I thought it would be.

Is this the first time a trailer has used the “In association with Marvel” screen, rather than the just plain Marvel screen?

No. The first Venom and Morbius trailers had that as well.

You are being way to kind. It looks atrocious.

First one was not good either. Looks like I can skip this or wait until it is playing free somewhere.

Weird trailer. It just feels off somehow. Not that the first film is great or anything, but this looks a lot more cheesy for some reason.
