Sony Pictures recently announced that Venom 3 is officially in the works, and star Tom Hardy has now confirmed it by sharing a preview of the threequel’s storyline. Find more details after the jump!
Sony Pictures has confirmed that Venom 3 is in the works at CinemaCon, and Tom Hardy has now shared a first look at the script for the sequel. We don’t have a title, but just like Venom: let there be carnagethe actor will share a “Story by” credits with screenwriter Kelly Marcel.
It’s no big surprise that she was cast in this movie, especially after the success of the 2021 and 2018 sequel. Venom. It is possible that they are just beginning to work on Venom 3but we have a feeling that the first draft may already be finished.
In an Instagram Story, Hardy posted a sticker over the image you see below saying “Last Ride.” What that means is up for debate; this may be a reference to the fact that this is the final chapter of the trilogy or an indication that the actor intends to step away from the role once he finishes working on this next film.
Either way, the fact that the tongue he drew on Venom appears to be an “S” has already started generating speculation online. While Tom Holland’s Spider-Man should remain exclusively in the MCU, Spider-Man: No Coming Home did you see a piece of the symbiote left in this world, so maybe there is still a way for these characters to meet?
Venom: let there be carnage ended with Detective Pat Mulligan gaining powers (we still don’t know what happened there…), so the most likely outcome is that the symbiote will fight another enemy with an alien costume. On the page, Pat becomes Toxin, and we’re sure that’s a role Stephen Graham could have some fun with.
There’s no word on who will lead Venom 3. Ruben Fleischer directed Venom, while Andy Serkis was signed on to helm the sequel.
