Riz Ahmed is talking about being part of the Venom movie

Riz Ahmed may be a part of the Spiderman universe in the new Venom movie.

Sony may be adding Riz Ahmed to the cast of the Venom movie they’ve been working on. While the movie is still far in the future, reports suggest that Riz Ahmed is looking to join the cast. Sony has been trying to get this film and the character off the ground since the beginning of attempts at the franchise back in 2002.

Ahmed would join Tom Hardy who is attached to star, presumably playing Eddie Brock who eventually becomes the titular Venom. No word yet on which character he will play but sources suggest that he’s playing a popular Marvel character.

The last time the character was on screen was in 2007, played by Topher Grace to generally negative reactions from fans.
