Tom Hardy’s ‘Venom 3’ is in development at Sony Pictures.
Sony Pictures has officially confirmed Tom Hardy’s Venom 3, following the huge success of Tom Holland’s Spider-Man: No Way Home during CinemaCon in Las Vegas. It’s clear that Sony is building a universe around its most famous Marvel comic book character, Spider-Man. Apparently Tom Holland’s Spider-Man is teased in the post credits scenes of Tom Hardy’s Venom: Let There Be Carnage. In this context, the studio has already confirmed ‘Kraven The Hunter’ with Aaron Taylor-Johnson in the lead role and Dakota Johnson’s Madame Web. In such a situation, Venom becomes very important in this new universe of Sony.
It is also worth noting that Sony’s previous release Morbius was a big disaster. Anyway, Jared Leto’s ‘Morbius’ is also a part of this universe. In such a situation, the studio will also have to think about Morbius and fix the flaws as the studio revamped its 2018′ Venom.
Obviously, this will be Sony’s first trilogy about Venom after Spider-Man. The love that the audience has given to Tom Hardy’s Venom, is made on sight. Even though the original 2018 film has been made a blockbuster by the fans even after some flaws. Both the films released so far have achieved immense success at the box office. Under the leadership of Andy Serkis and Ruben Fleischer, both the installments garnered a lot of accolades.
Both the films combined have grossed over $1.35 billion at the box office, whereas their budget has been 200 to 230 million. Tom Hardy will return as Eddie Brock / Venom in the third installment. It is not yet clear whether Andy Serkis will return as director. But the way Andy Serkis developed the character in Venom: Let There Be Carnage was commendable. In such a situation, the chances of directing Venom 3 increase. Also, it is not yet clear what will be the story of Venom 3.
