It’s now official: Andy Serkis will be directing Venom 2.

Following rumors that surfaced last week, it is now official that Serkis will be stepping into the director’s shoes for the second cinematic outing of Venom.

While Serkis is well-known for his acting in movies such as the Lord of the Rings trilogy and Black Panther, he has been dipping his toes into the world of directing. His biggest project before this was Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle for Netflix.

We’ve known Venom 2 was coming, but we had no idea when it would be happening or who would be directing. About the only thing we knew for certain was that Tom Hardy would be returning as Eddie Brock/Venom.

With Serkis onboard now, hopefully things will start moving a bit faster on Venom 2, and we’re ready for it.
