Sony Pictures has officially announced that a Venom 3 is currently in the works, which is something we were pretty sure was the case.
They revealed this news at CinemaCon which is taking place right now over in Las Vegas.
Venom: Let There Be Carnage was released last year, and it wasn’t the best movie ever made.
However, the movie was nowhere near as poor as Morbius ended up being.
This is all part of Sony’s Spider-Man cinematic universe, and it was looking good for a while for Sony.
However, it has to be said that Morbius’ poor performance, both with audiences and at the box office, Sony’s Spider-Man plans might have been dented somewhat.
Interestingly enough, Sony picked Venom as the character to kickstart this new Spider-Man universe.
The first movie was a lot of fun, and the second film wasn’t as good, but still has that same sense of fun.
Venom: Let There Be Carnage ended up making over $500 million at the worldwide box office, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that Sony would want to make a third movie.
Should Sony Pictures bother making a Venom 3?
Andy Serkis’ Venom: Let There Be Carnage did leave the door wide open for a sequel, which of course was deliberate.
The movie ended with Tom Hardy’s Eddie Brock spending some time in the MCU, only to be brought back in a post-credits scene in Spider-Man: No Way Home.
What that whole rather odd post-credits scenes back and forth did was give Hardy’s Brock and Venom knowledge of Spider-Man.
I’m thinking that his look in the third Venom movie might now be a bit inspired by Tom Holland’s Spider-Man.
Anyway, what happened during Sony Pictures’ CinemaCon panel?
Well, the studio closed out its panel by showing a sizzle reel of upcoming projects.
During this presentation, Sony officially announced Venom 3 is on the way.
They didn’t give any further information on the film’s writers and director, but they did confirm that Tom Hardy would be back to play Brock/Venom.
