Tom Hardy will be back as Venom in Sony’s upcoming Venom 3, but when can you expect to see Eddie Brock and his symbiotic BFF back up on the big screen?
According to a new report from Variety, Venom 3 is shooting for an October 2024 release!
This checks out, as both Venom (2018) and Venom: Let There Be Carnage (2021) were unleashed into theaters in October. That seems to be the sweet spot for this franchise.
Shooting on Venom 3 is expected to begin very soon, but we don’t yet know at this time how the ongoing WGA strike will impact those plans. Stay tuned for more as we learn it.
Chiwetel Ejiofor (Doctor Strange) and Juno Temple (“Ted Lasso”) will star.
Venom and Venom 2 writer Kelly Marcel will be directing the third movie.
In addition to writing, Kelly Marcel also produced the first two Venom movies. She’s on board to produce Venom 3 as well, and Marcel also wrote the screenplay for the new film.
Deadline reports, “Plot details are unknown other than Hardy returning as the lethal protector Venom following the first two films grossing a combined $1.36 billion worldwide at the box-office. It is also unknown who will be joining Hardy from previous films or if any characters from the Sony Pictures Universe of Marvel Characters will be joining the film.”
Ruben Fleischer directed Venom, with Andy Serkis directing Venom: Let There Be Carnage. The 2021 sequel saw Tom Hardy’s Venom do battle with Woody Harrelson’s Carnage. The sequel also made it clear that these Venom movies are taking place within the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe, so we expect to see some more connections in the upcoming third movie.
Avi Arad, Matt Tolmach, Amy Pascal, and Hutch Parker are also producing Venom 3.
