Tom Hardy’s Eddie Brock is gearing up for another thrilling adventure in Sony’s Spider-Man Universe with the highly anticipated Venom 3. After the impressive box office success of both “Venom” and “Venom: Let There Be Carnage,” which collectively raked in over $1.4 billion worldwide, fans are eagerly anticipating the next installment.

When Will Venom 3 Arrive?

According to Deadline, Venom 3 is presently slated for a July 12, 2024 release date. Filming for the movie commenced in June 2023, with Tom Hardy, who also co-wrote the film, confirming production’s start via Instagram. However, the project faced a setback when it was temporarily halted due to the Screen Actors Guild strike in Hollywood. Given the ongoing industry strikes and Sony Pictures’ willingness to adjust release dates, fans should stay prepared for potential changes.

Who’s Returning and Who’s New in the Cast?

While limited casting details have been officially announced, several actors are expected to appear in Venom 3. Here’s a rundown of the confirmed and rumored cast members:

  1. Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock: Returning as the iconic Marvel character Eddie Brock, Tom Hardy’s Eddie grapples with the symbiotic alien Venom within him, transforming into an anti-hero.
  2. Michelle Williams as Anne Weying: Although not officially confirmed for Venom 3, it’s likely that Michelle Williams will reprise her role as Anne Weying, Eddie’s ex-fiancée who briefly becomes She-Venom.
  3. Stephen Graham as Detective Patrick Mulligan: Stephen Graham is rumored to appear as Detective Patrick Mulligan, a character who may have survived the events of Venom: Let There Be Carnage.
  4. Juno Temple: Juno Temple, known for her role in “Ted Lasso,” has been cast in an undisclosed role in Venom 3.
  5. Chiwetel Ejiofor: MCU star Chiwetel Ejiofor, who previously portrayed Baron Mordo in “Doctor Strange” films, is set to join the cast, but his role remains unknown.
  6. Owen Wilson (Rumored): Owen Wilson, famous for his role in “Loki,” is rumored to be part of the cast, although his role is yet to be confirmed.

What’s the Buzz About the Villain in Venom 3?

While no official announcement has been made regarding the villain in Venom 3, there are speculations and hints. According to a report from My Cosmic Circus, the working title for Venom 3 is “Orwell,” which may refer to Marvel Comics character Orwell Taylor. In the comics, Taylor seeks vengeance against Venom after the anti-hero kills his son during a prison break. Taylor forms “The Jury,” a group determined to eliminate Venom.

Insider Daniel Richtman suggested that Chiwetel Ejiofor could play Orwell, further fueling the speculation that Orwell Taylor could be the antagonist in the film.

Will Spider-Man Appear in Venom 3?

Despite the interconnectedness between Sony’s Spider-Man Universe and the MCU, Tom Holland’s Spider-Man is unlikely to appear in Venom 3. While there were plans for a crossover, Marvel Studios ultimately pulled the plug on it. However, the door for connections between the two universes remains open. Holland’s Spider-Man is currently focused on his own Multiverse adventures, making a cameo in Venom 3 seem unlikely at this point.

What to Expect in the Plot of Venom 3?

Detailed plot information for Venom 3 is still a secret. The film will deviate from its San Francisco setting, with locations in London and Cartagena, Spain. Tom Hardy referred to the project as a “last dance,” suggesting it could be the conclusion of his journey as Eddie Brock. While it’s the “final chapter” in the Venom story, Hardy has also hinted that more Venom stories could emerge in the future.
