Could The Venom Franchise Be In Trouble?! A Sony Leader Speaks Out

MOVIE NEWS – Tom Rothman has revealed details about Venom 3 that will surely disappoint fans of Tom Hardy’s Venom franchise…



It seems that the third Venom film – officially titled Venom: The Last Dance – will indeed be the character’s last dance. Sony Motion Pictures Group President Tom Rothman has confirmed that this film will end the Venom franchise led by Tom Hardy. Speaking to Deadline recently about Sony’s upcoming schedule, which includes the Spider-Verse films, 28 Years Later and The Karate Kid, Rothman stated that The Last Dance will be the last outing for Eddie Brock and his alien symbiote friend, and he also revealed the scope of Sony’s Spider-Man universe movie.

“The third and last Venom, is going to be huge,” said Tom Rothman in the interview.

Sony’s somewhat questionable Spider-Man spinoff universe began with Venom in 2018. It stars Tom Hardy as Marvel’s villain/anti-hero, who starts out as a guerilla journalist before unwittingly merging with a symbiotic alien with deadly powers. Despite mixed reviews, the first Venom movie was a huge success. It brought in $856 million at the worldwide box office.

Thus, the sequel was released in 2021. Directed by Andy Serkis, Venom 2. – Vérontó (Venom: Let There Be Carnage) allows the audience to meet Brock and his alien buddy again when the journalist tries to restart his career by interviewing the serial killer Cletus Kasady (Woody Harrelson). The latter becomes the host body of an alien symbiote named Carnage. Like its predecessor, the second part received very mixed reviews, but the audience loved it again. It grossed just over $506 million worldwide, becoming the seventh highest-grossing film of the year.


The swan song of the Venom franchise hits theatres in October


Venom: The Last Dance is written by the writer of the first two parts, Kelly Marcel. Marcel also wrote the script for the third and final part based on Tom Hardy’s story. In addition to Hardy, Juno Temple, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and Clark Backo will appear in as yet unnamed roles.

Although the details of the plot are not yet known, the final sequel will see Hardy again in the dual role of Eddie Brock and Venom.

Various images from the set have seemingly revealed that Venom: The Last Dance will pick up right after the events of the MCU outing Spider-Man: No Return, in which Brock was sent to Tom Holland’s universe before being flown back to his own.
