Sony has officially announced that Venom 3 will be released after Tom Hardy’s anti-hero made a brief appearance in the MCU.
A few months after producer Amy Pascal announced the movie was in the “planning phases” around the time of Spider-Man: No Way Home’s release, the threequel was hinted to at CinemaCon on April 25, 2022, with the publication of the logo.
It’s unclear at this time if Andy Serkis will return to helm the third instalment of Venom: Let There Be Carnage. But he has already stated that he would be willing to do it: “Yeah, I guess, of course. It’s a fantastic world in which to play.”
Here is all the information you need to know about Venom 3 as we wait for further information to become available.
Venom 3 potential release date: When will Venom 3 be out in cinemas?
Venom 3 has been confirmed, as was already mentioned, although a release date is still pending.
With the established release dates for Kraven the Hunter (January 13, 2023), Madame Web (July 7, 2023) and El Muerto (January 12, 2024), Sony has a busy few years ahead of it with its Spider-Man universe.
Additionally, Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse and Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse will be released in 2023 and 2024, respectively.
If Venom 3 begins filming in 2022, it’s possible that the threequel will hit theatres in 2024, possibly in October 2024 as the first two films were released in October 2018 and October 2021, respectively.
For the time being, we can only speculate on it, so keep checking back for further information about the release date.
Venom 3 cast: Who’s coming back for Venom 3?
Venom 3’s cast has not yet been officially announced, but Tom Hardy’s return as Eddie Brock and his extraterrestrial buddy Venom is a virtual certainty.
Hardy acknowledged signing up for three films back in August 2018, all of which we presume to be Venom flicks. We’d be shocked if Hardy wasn’t back in the third movie, even if it did contain his brief cameo in Spider-Man: No Way Home.
It’s more difficult to predict who else may return, but Patrick Mulligan, who was portrayed by Stephen Graham, might return. He appeared to have suffered a severe spinal damage after being strung up by the neck with a chain, yet he managed to survive the sequel.
He will probably certainly be portraying the character Toxin, considering his last appearance on TV included him rambling about monsters while sporting blue glowing eyes. While keeping his mouth shut, the actor did mention that “there’s a potential that may be addressed in the future.”
Uncertainty surrounds Michelle Williams’ potential comeback as Ann and She-Venom, but we must hope that she does. Williams had expressed interest in playing She-Venom but received no further screen time in Venom: Let There Be Carnage.
She could have more room to explore that in a third film, together with her somewhat reluctant fiancé Dan Lewis (Reid Scott). Since Ann and Dan seem to be a rather stable marriage, we can’t envision Ann coming back alone.
We expect to see more of Peggy Lu as Mrs. Chen, the proprietor of the neighbourhood convenience store, even if Venom and Eddie end the film on the run.
Unfortunately, given that the movie concluded with Venom biting off the head of Woody Harrelson’s character Cletus Kasady/Carnage, he is the least likely to return.
Naomie Harris making a comeback would also seem strange as Shriek was killed by falling debris and a huge church bell, but you never know.
Venom 3 plot: What will happen in Venom 3?
We don’t know much more about what Eddie Brock and Venom might encounter in the threequel other than the fact that he is now on the run.
Of course, the question of whether he’ll finally face Spider-Man off won’t go away, and it might occur in the following film. Eddie/Venom was briefly sent to the MCU in No Way Home, but at the end of the film, he was back in his own realm.
You can’t rule anything out given that the MCU is using the universe and Morbius has its own MCU crossover.
Sony and Marvel’s creative teams appear eager to see it through, while Marvel’s Kevin Feige appeared to imply that it wasn’t up to him, adding “It’s likely up to Sony, in my opinion. Venom also exists in the universe of Sony and both of those characters do.”
“It seems likely at some point,” he continued, adding that the third film might be that time. Serkis declared “of course it’s going to happen” before the release of Let There Be Carnage, and Hardy has been outspoken about making it happen as well.
“I don’t see why it couldn’t be, provided that both parties were willing and it would be advantageous to both parties. As long as it’s within the bounds of what’s ethical in business, I fervently aspire for and actively push toward that potential “said he.
“But if you were running the 100 metres, it would be silly to not head towards the Olympic Games, so absolutely! On that pitch, I want to play.”
Morbius’ credit scene hinted at a possible Sinister Six team-up in this dimension, therefore Venom might be included in that in the third film. Everything is feasible right now.
