Sony Pictures has decided to push back the third Venom movie. This announcement comes on the same day that SAG-AFTRA approved a tentative deal which sees the 118-day strike come to an end.
The third installment of the Venom franchise was originally set for a July 12, 2024 release date but will not be released later in 2024.
The new release date for the third Venom movie is now November 8, 2024.
While the third movie is still currently untitled, Kelly Marcel, who wrote and produced the first two Venom movies is directing the upcoming movie from a screenplay she wrote. Marcel and Hardy developed Venom 3’s story and produce alongside Avi Arad, Matt Tolmach, Amy Pascal, and Hutch Parker.
The first Venom movie released in October of 2018 and was directed by Ruben Fleischer. The first Venom movie grossed a massive $856 million at the worldwide box office. The second Venom movie which was directed by Andy Serkis and featured Carnage saw the film take a hit amid the pandemic but still earned $502 million which for being released in the midst of a pandemic is still a decent number to make at the box office.
During CinemaCon in 2022, Sony confirmed that a third movie in the Tom Hardy-led franchise was moving forward. Aside from the announcement of Hardy’s return, the plot of the third movie is being kept under wraps.
The last time we saw Hardy’s Eddie Brock and Venom was in the credit sequence in 2021’s Spider-Man: No Way Home.
