The highly anticipated sequel has added Boardwalk Empire star Stephen Graham in a mystery role.

The actor's reported role wasn't named.

Directed by Andy Serkis from a script written by Kelly Marcel, Venom 2 stars Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock, Michelle Williams as Anne Weying, and Woody Harrelson as Carnage.


Andy Serkis (Mowgli, Breathe) is stepping behind the digital camera to direct Venom 2, and the movement seize efficiency specialist might be the proper alternative for a film that may hopefully function a number of symbiotes.

In the meantime, you can catch Graham and Hardy on screen together - alongside their Venom director Serkis - in the upcoming BBC/FX adaptation of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol. We know that Woody Harrelson will be playing Carnage in the Venom sequel, so it's most likely that Stephen Graham won't be playing a villain, though he would be ideal for such a role.

Graham is known for roles in "The Irishman", "Rocketman", "Gangs of New York, "Snatch", and "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy". His expertise doing movement seize performances for movies just like the current Planet of the Apes movies, King Kong, and in fact, his good flip as Gollum within the Lord of the Rings films signifies that possibly, simply possibly, we'll be getting extra symbiote motion within the sequel. His part isn't huge in the movie, but he makes the most of it, smacking ice cream out of Al Pacino's hand, showing up late for meetings while wearing shorts, and chomping on cigars.


I mean, I think you always have to think about [it], now that that works. So it isn't like suddenly everybody's considering what to do with the rating. "I think it's unexplored yet, and it's going to explode, and this film, I think, will help it explode, because you have a remarkable central character with Venom, but now you've got Woody Harrelson, who's going to obviously make his own little entrance here, and we'll see what else comes in with the Sony Marvel collaboration". For a long time, that was the narration. And Deadpool fought against that, and then Logan, but for a long time, that was considered totally forbidden ... So you know, I think it's the best in the world, that the R-category movies are being accepted by a mass audience.

But the success of Joker, which has now made well over £760 million ($1 billion), means that studios and producers have much more faith in adult only comic-book movies thriving financially.

Venom is one of Marvel's most iconic characters. Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy) is a broken man after he loses everything including his job and fiancee. Just when his life is at its lowest, he becomes host to an alien symbiote which results in extraordinary superpowers - transforming him into Venom.
