Venom 3: Everything We Know So Far

Prepare for an electrifying clash of anti-heroes and a possible Spider-Man showdown in Venom 3, the much-anticipated Marvel-Sony blockbuster!

Venom 3

Marvel fans have been eagerly anticipating the third installment of the Venom series, but it seems that the production has hit a roadblock. While we wait for the situation to be resolved, let's dive into everything we know so far about Venom 3, from its potential release date to the cast and possible plot.

When Will Venom 3 Hit Cinemas?

Sony has officially announced that Venom 3 will have its exclusive premiere in theaters on July 12, 2024. Given the tremendous success of the previous two films at the box office, it was almost expected that this installment would follow suit with a theatrical release. The first movie raked in an astonishing $850 million worldwide, ranking it among the top 25 highest-grossing comic book movies of all time. Meanwhile, Venom: Let There Be Carnage also performed impressively during its theatrical run, earning over $500 million on a $100 million budget.

Initially scheduled for October 2024, the decision to move up the release date indicates Sony's confidence in delivering the film despite challenges posed by the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes, which have impacted the production.

Once the theatrical run concludes, there's a strong possibility that Venom 3 may become available for streaming. Sony has a history of partnering with platforms like Netflix to release their high-profile movies on streaming services. Additionally, a groundbreaking collaboration between Sony and Disney+ has set a new precedent, making some of their significant Spider-Man-related films accessible on the streaming platform. At present, Disney+ already offers Spider-Man, Spider-Man 2, Spider-Man 3, The Amazing Spider-Man, Spider-Man: Homecoming, and Venom for viewing. As of May 12, Venom is already available for streaming on Disney+. Therefore, it's foreseeable that Venom 3 might find its streaming home on Disney+ after its theatrical run ends.

What Is Venom 3's Production Status?

An Instagram post by Tom Hardy hinted that the script for Venom 3 was in progress or possibly completed. The film's production officially commenced in June 2023, despite the ongoing WGA writers' strike. However, the historic SAG-AFTRA strike that started on July 13, 2023, has put the project on hold until a resolution is reached and both actors and writers can resume work. Despite these setbacks, Sony remains optimistic about completing the film in time for its Summer 2024 release.

Who's Going To Be In The Cast Of Venom 3?

Behind the scenes, there has been a significant update. Kelly Marcel, the screenwriter for both Venom and Venom: Let There Be Carnage, will be taking on the director's chair for the upcoming threequel, succeeding Andy Serkis. Marcel is also the sole screenwriter, collaborating with Tom Hardy on developing the script, just as she did for the second film.

Tom Hardy will reprise his role as Eddie Brock, the iconic anti-hero Venom. It was confirmed back in August 2018 that Hardy had signed on for a three-movie deal, making his return in Venom 3 expected.

Juno Temple, known for her role in "Ted Lasso," and Chiwetel Ejiofor have also joined the cast, but their characters have not been disclosed yet. Other cast members from the previous movies have not been officially confirmed to return, leaving fans curious about who else might make an appearance.

What Is The Plot Of Venom 3?

As of now, the plot details for Venom 3 remain largely under wraps. At the end of Venom: Let There Be Carnage, Eddie Brock and Venom were on the run, which sets the stage for an exciting and unpredictable storyline.

One of the most burning questions among fans is whether Venom will cross paths with Spider-Man. Although Venom briefly appeared in the MCU in "Spider-Man: No Way Home," he returned to his own universe by the end of the movie. However, with the concept of the multiverse now in play in the MCU, there is a possibility that Venom and Spider-Man might eventually face off in Venom 3.

Additionally, the post-credits scene in "Morbius" hinted at a potential Sinister Six team-up, which could potentially involve Venom. With the possibility of crossovers and team-ups, anything is on the table for Venom 3.


Venom 3 holds significant promise as the Marvel-Sony saga continues to unfold. Despite the production delays, fans can't wait to see Tom Hardy back in action as Eddie Brock and experience the thrilling world of Venom once more. As we eagerly await further updates, let's keep our fingers crossed for an action-packed, villain-infused, and unforgettable Venom 3!
