It looks like Woody Harrelson is set to follow up his role in the galaxy far, far away in Solo: A Star Wars Story by joining the Marvel universe – well, the Sony one, at least – with Variety reporting that the actor is in talks to join the Venom solo movie.
Although details are scarce, it’s said that Harrelson is up for the role of a henchman, presumably to Riz Ahmed’s (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) villain, rumoured to be that of Carnage. Given that Venom is taking inspiration from the Lethal Protector story arc, it’s possible that we could see Harrelson with his own symbiote.
Meanwhile, thanks to Atlanta Filming, we also have a look at some new spy photos from the set of the filming featuring Tom Hardy performing a motorcycle stunt as Eddie Brock. What exactly is going on here, we’ll have to wait and see…
