Third ‘Venom’ Feature Said To Be “In The Planning Stages”

It looks like a Venom trilogy is on the way.

The Eddie Brock and Venom love/hate relationship still has plenty of steam left, if you listen to what SpiderMan producer Amy Pascal recently said. The Marvel Cinematic Universe filmmaker let the symbiote out of the bag during a recent interview with

Pascal–during a conversation about the upcoming (and much-anticipated) SpiderManNo Way Home–dropped a strong hint about a third Venom film. “We are in the planning stages right now,” she said, ” but what we are focused on is getting everybody to come and see No Way Home.”

Venom star Tom Hardy seemed to agree with those sentiments during another interview. “These things usually come in threes,” the actor said. “I think it’s really important to think that one, two and three are the same–the same story, the same film. So that you don’t surprise yourself by suddenly having to do a third from nowhere.”

Andy Serkis–the director of this year’s blockbuster VenomLet There Be Carnage–is on the same page. “I think there’s so much potential in the Venomverse for really interesting journeys,” he said. “When you’re going into a franchise, you’ve got to think about the arc, of course. You can’t think about (each movie) individually.”

VenomLet There Be Carnage–directed by Serkis from a screenplay by Kelly Marcel–follows Eddie Brock (Hardy), the host of the symbiote Venom, as he battles another symbiote, Carnage, inhabiting the body of serial killer Cletus Kasady (Woody Harrelson).

Carnage–which last month broke the $200-million barrier in domestic box offices–has now earned more than $430 million worldwide.
