Just last week we found out that Michelle Williams would be Ann Weying in Sony’s Venom movie, and now it looks like Jenny Slate (Parks and Recreation, The Lego Batman Movie) will be joining the cast in a mysterious scientist role according to Variety.
The trade doesn’t offer many details about who Slate is playing specifically, so we don’t know if the origins of her character lie in the Marvel Universe or if it’s just a role created for the film. The film will be helmed by Zombieland‘s Ruben Fleischer and also stars Tom Hardy in the lead role as Eddie Brock. Rogue One’s Riz Ahmed has also been confirmed for the film, but it’s still a mystery as to who the actor is playing. Also, Sony is still looking for an actor to play Carnage.
Venom is set to open Oct. 5, 2018.
