The Tracking Board is reporting that Rogue One: A Star Wars Story star Riz Ahmed is in final talks to star alongside Tom Hardy in the upcoming Venom film in a mystery role along with Matt Smith, Pedro Pascal and Mathias Schoenarts. While the role is a mystery, several outlets are reporting that he’s playing Cletus Kasady, aka Carnage, the rumored villain of the film.

Carnage is the spawn of Venom, and a crazed psychopathic symbiote hell-bent on death and destruction with its host. Carnage’s red color comes from its intensely close blood bond between the symbiote and Kasady after it entered his blood-stream.
