Information about who Michelle Williams might play was slim to none for a while, but now we know she's taking on the role of Anne Weying. "We're having fun . . . It's, um, well for me it's Tom [Hardy]," Williams told Screenrant. "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."
In the comics, Weying is a successful lawyer and the ex-wife of Eddie who eventually becomes She-Venom (also referred to as "The Bride of Venom"). Williams also touched on the skills she's had to improve upon for the role: "I've done one other movie where I was asked to track a tennis ball with my eyes and pretend it was a giant creature thing. Not my favorite thing in the world to do, but it is a skill set and I'm trying to learn it."
