Venom 3 is officially in the works at Sony.
A third film starring Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock/Venom was greenlit by the studio at this year’s CinemaCon on Monday (April 25).
The first two films grossed $856million and $502million respectively at the global box office. Hardy’s Venom also appeared in a post-credits scene of Spider-Man: No Way Home, suggesting future appearances.
Sheena Duggal, the VFX Supervisor for the new film, told Variety about a sequence in which Harrelson’s villain, Carnage, is seen putting his tongue down someone’s throat in order to kill them.
“We had to tone that back a bit,” she explained. “He does it with a tentacle [in the comics], but I thought it would be fun to have him use his tongue to add that extra gruesome element.”
