Spider-Man Boss Confirms Sony Is Working on a Third Venom Film

Spider-Man producer Amy Pascal has confirmed that a third Venom movie is in the works.

In an interview with Collider, Pascal was asked about when audiences could expect to see a follow-up to Venom: Let There Be Carnage. "We are in the planning stages right now," she answered. "But what we are focused on is getting everybody to come and see No Way Home." Interviewer Steve Weintraub assured Pascal that, considering the amount of hype surrounding the MCU's third Spider-Man movie, that wouldn't be a problem.

In the mid-credits stinger for Let There Be Carnage, Eddie Brock and Venom were somehow transported from their continuity into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, where they caught sight of J. Jonah Jameson revealing Spider-Man's secret identity to the world. Since a confrontation between Venom and Spider-Man seemed inevitable, Weintraub asked Pascal how long Sony and Marvel were planning this crossover. Pascal gave what Weintraub called a "politician answer," saying, "We all talk of the wonderful movies that Sony makes and there's the other characters, there's the Marvel Universe, there's our Spider-Verse movies and we're all very careful to work with each other in a way that is additive for everybody."

Head of Marvel Studios Kevin Feige gave a more director answer, saying the crossover was in the works since the first Venom movie became a surprise box office smash in 2018. "You look at the obvious comic connotations between Venom and Spider-Man and it is inherent," he said. "So the minute Sony made their Venom movie and it worked as well as it did, and Tom Hardy became as iconic as he has become as Venom, then the obvious question is then, 'How do we start to merge them?'"

Star Tom Hardy has already stated that he is "deeply invested" in making more Venom movies, while director Andy Serkis said he has "a few ideas of [his] own" about how to round out the trilogy. Serkis added that a confrontation between the Web-Slinger and the Lethal Protector was definitely in the cards. "It's going to happen, the question is when," he said. "We don't want to rush it." Outside of a crossover, Let There Be Carnage also teased Detective Patrick Mulligan becoming another symbiote/human hybrid, the villain Toxin, as well as a potential empire of symbiotes to threaten the world.

Venom: Let There Be Carnage is available on VOD, with a home video release set for Dec. 14. Spider-Man: No Way Home arrives Dec. 17 in theaters.
