Riz Ahmed isn’t Cletus Cassidy in the Venom Flick
While there’s some clamor for Rogue One star Riz Ahmed to play Carnage in the upcoming Venom movie but it looks like that’s not the case.
According to several sources, Ahmed will play the role of Dr. Carlton Drake, who leads the company known as The Life Foundation, a medical company that set its sight on Eddie Brock and the Venom symbiote when they moved from New York City to San Francisco.
This is what happens when they walk out of the wrong door… side and behind view.

Ahmed was spotted on the set of Venom all dressed up and not looking like Carnage at all.
Sony had previously announced that the Venom movie will be loosely based on the “Lethal Protector” miniseries so this is definitely a sign that they are trying to make something out of the project.
Venom stars Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock, Michelle Williams, Woody Harrelson, Jenny Slate and directed by Ruben Fleischer.
