‘Venom 3’ – Kelly Marcel Directing the Next Installment in the Franchise

Tom Hardy will be back as Venom in Sony’s upcoming Venom 3, and Deadline breaks the news today that Venom and Venom 2 writer Kelly Marcel will be directing the third movie.

In addition to writing, Kelly Marcel also produced the first two Venom movies. She’s on board to produce Venom 3 as well, and Marcel also wrote the screenplay for the new film.

Deadline reports, “Plot details are unknown other then Hardy returning as the lethal protector Venom following the first two films grossing a combined $1.36 billion worldwide at the box-office. It is also unknown who will be joining Hardy from previous films or if any characters from the Sony Pictures Universe of Marvel Characters will be joining the film.”

Ruben Fleischer directed Venom, with Andy Serkis directing Venom: Let There Be Carnage. The 2021 sequel saw Tom Hardy’s Venom do battle with Woody Harrelson’s Carnage. The sequel also made it clear that these Venom movies are taking place within the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe, so we expect to see some more connections in the upcoming third movie.

Stay tuned for more on Venom‘s third installment as we learn it.

Avi Arad, Matt Tolmach, Amy Pascal, and Hutch Parker are also producing Venom 3.
