With actor Tom Hardy revealing that the first draft of the script is finished, Venom 3 is progressing quickly.
In June 2022, barely eight months after the publication of Let There Be Carnage, the actor, who portrays retired journalist and symbiote presenter Eddie Brock, posted a screenshot of the document’s front cover to his Instagram account.
Although Kelly Marcel is given a sole writing credit, which indicates she had a stronger say in the movie’s finer points, the image reveals that Hardy himself and Kelly Marcel came up with the plot.
Marvel has contributed to a variety of projects, ranging from Disney’s Cruella to the obscene drama Fifty Shades of Grey, and she co-wrote the screenplays for both of the previous Venom movies.
The third entry’s title is hidden by an image of Venom, whose mouth spreads out to resemble the number three, in the photo.
Another significant mystery is the identity of the film’s director since Andy Serkis has not yet said if he would return to oversee more bloody symbiote-fueled mayhem.
According to producer Amy Pascal in December 2021, Venom 3 was in the “planning phases,” but Sony Pictures was more concerned with the success of Spider-Man: No Way Home, in which Hardy’s character had a fleeting appearance.

Release date & Rumors for Venom 3
It appears like Hardy is trying to bring his series back to theaters soon, maybe as early as next year, but for now, this is only conjectured in light of Hardy’s most recent update, which reveals a draft of the Venom 3 screenplay does exist.
In a previous interview with Digital Spy, Hardy stated: “These things [typically] happen in threes. Everyone has to be as successful as the previous one if there is to be a new one since they are highly dependent on the success of each one and are thus unlikely to occur again.
But if you walk into something assuming that one, two, and three are the same—the same plot, the same film—I think it’s incredibly significant. so that you won’t catch yourself off guard when you unexpectedly need to do a third.
“There needs to be some continuity into a third, fourth, and fifth, but if someone says ‘no,’ that’s great,” he continued. Move on to something else and let it go.
Although it’s unclear what’s happening with the Sony Pictures Universe of Marvel Characters, we get closer to full integration with the MCU and its universe with each new installment. Previously, Venom had his franchise; however, some unfriendly allies are about to join him.
There are now appearances for everyone from Spider-Woman to Madame Web, as well as Daniel Espinosa’s Morbius, Aaron Taylor-Kraven, Johnson’s, and more on the list. If the SPUMC (quite the name) and the MCU meet, things will get much more convoluted, and we predict fatalities, just as some Fox projects were shelved when Disney acquired the studio.
In addition, persistent rumors that a separate Sinister Six film is finally in the works continue to circulate. Venom will undoubtedly be included in its line-up, whether it’s a full-fledged comeback for Alfred Molina, Jamie Foxx, and Willem Dafoe alongside Hardy and a few others or something that will come together after Morbius with Jared Leto and Michael Keaton.
Significantly, the multiverse is positioned as a continuous story thread for the MCU. Don’t anticipate it to be a one-and-done as the Infinity Stones were involved in the prior three steps.
The post-credits scene makes no mention of anyone else joining the main MCU outside the would-be reporter and his symbiote, whatever is happening with Eddie and the multiverse. Before returning to their tale in Venom 3, it seems sensible to take care of whatever unfinished business they may have there.
Venom 3 will presumably debut after February 2023 given that the entire universe scenario will continue at least until Jonathan Majors’ return for Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. Disney and Sony are slogging through a slew of additional storylines that are all tied to a much broader world even though it was just three years between Venom and Let There Be Carnage. Fortunately, all indications are that the slippery symbiote and his human host will have lengthy lives within the Venom-Verse and beyond.
