Venom fans, this news about Venom 3 is sure to please you.
When the original Venom film was released in October 2018, fans immediately loved the character of Eddie Brock, played by Tom Hardy. The supporting cast was also praised, and while not critically acclaimed, the film generated a high audience score. When the sequel was released, the film received higher critical acclaim than expected and a higher audience score. While Venom: Let There Be Carnage only grossed half of the original’s box office, it made over double its predecessor in its opening weekend domestically. Now, we have some new information on the development of Venom 3.
Venom 3 In Development, Says Producer Amy Pascal
In a recent interview with Collider, producer Amy Pascal spoke on Spider-Man: No Way Home. When asked a question about Venom 3‘s development, here’s what Pascal had to say:
We are in the planning stages right now but what we are focused on is getting everybody to come and see No Way Home.Amy Pascal on the development of Venom 3
Basically, Venom: Let There Be Carnage grossed enough that Sony wants more of these movies, and is fast-tracking them for release as fast as possible.
It’s not surprising to hear Pascal’s answer, as comic book movies are generally kept extremely secretive. However, Pascal’s answer is something we don’t usually even get out of Kevin Feige, as he likes to just give a smile. It’s exciting to hear that Venom 3 is in development already, no matter how early they are in pre-production. The biggest question from fans about this film, will it be set in the MCU?
At the end of Venom: Let There Be Carnage, Eddie and Venom were transported to the MCU, where Venom licks the TV’s screen, with Peter Parker’s face on it. Will Venom 3 be set in the same universe, making it the first Sony film (apart from the Tom Holland trilogy) to be set in the MCU? Or will Venom somehow be transported back to his own universe?
