RUMOR: Venom’s Ex-Wife To Appear in Upcoming VENOM Film

As Tom Hardy‘s Venom film gets on its way, cementing Sony’s own Marvel universe as a force to be reckoned with, rumors and speculation have abounded as to which characters could appear and what stars could be cast to portray them. has learned that Eddie Brock’s ex-wife, Ann Weying, will appear in the film.

The actress that will play the wife has not been cast. We do know from the story that Weying was a DA at some point in her life, although Sony has not committed to keeping that career. In the comics, Weying was shot at some point but saved by another symbiote (much like the one that took over Brock), leading later to her depression and suicide.

The arc of that character seems to fit well within the more serious adult themes that writers Jeff Pinkner and Scott Rosenberg want to give to the film. It remains to be seen, of course, if this spin will bring in the more mature audiences alongside the traditional younger demographic.

Rumors continue to abound that Carnage, another symbiote, will be the main villain in the film, and since production is just around the corner you can bet that the rest of the shoes are about to drop.

Tell us in the comments your thoughts about having Eddie Brock’s former love interest, his ex-wife Ann, appear in the upcoming Venom film.
