Juno Temple Circling “Venom 3” Role Alongside Tom Hardy
If there’s one thing we’ve learned from Ted Lasso, it’s that both Keeley Jones and the woman who plays her, Juno Temple, can do it all. So why not mix it up with an alien symbiote and the unlucky sap who hosts him?
Temple is in talks to join Tom Hardy in Venom 3, which would mark her debut in a Marvel film after a very successful run on Apple’s darling comedy. The film will be directed by longtime Venom scribe Kelly Marcy, who is making her directorial debut and working off a script she’s writing based on a story she and Hardy crafted.
Details at this time are being guarded by Venom himself, but The Hollywood Reporter scoops that Temple might be playing an existing Marvel character. Could this mean we’ll be getting more Juno in the MCU? One can hope.
Sony is expanding their Spider-Man Universe with a host of upcoming projects, including Kraven the Hunter, Madame Web, and even a movie Donald Glover is producing and will star in about the villain the Hypno-Hustler. Venom (2018) was initially conceived as a completely stand-alone project, but its sequel, Venom: Let There Be Carnage (2021), and the Jared Leto-led Morbius (2022) established, via mid-credits, a connection to the Spider-Man Universe and the MCU via the multiverse.
Temple has appeared in major comic book movies before—she had a role in Christopher Nolan’s trilogy capping The Dark Knight Rises (2012), as well as in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For (2014).
Temple’s become a star thanks to her Emmy-nominated work as Keeley Jones on Lasso and has the fifth season of FX’s excellent anthology series Fargo coming out next.
