“Venom 3” Taps “Justice League” & “Game of Thrones” Cinematographer Fabian Wagner

Cinematographer Fabian Wagner is no stranger to the realm of superheroes and super epic action. The Justice League and Game of Thrones DP has been tapped to lens Sony’s Venom 3, The Hollywood Reporter scoops. He’ll bringing a very suitable skillset that includes crafting some of the most breathless action set pieces ever scene on the small screen, to say nothing of his work helping Zack Snyder (eventually) realize his vision for his superhero team-up.

The Emmy-nominated Wagner, who lensed one of the best Game of Thrones episodes of them all, “Battle of the Bastards,” will be working with Venom and Venom: Let There Be Carnage scribe Kelly Marcel, who will be making her directorial debut here. Tom Hardy returns, of course, as Eddie Brock/Venom, everybody’s favorite investigative journalist/alien symbiote tag team. Marcel will direct off her own script and share story credit with Hardy.

We spoke with Wagner about his efforts on Zack Snyder’s Justice League, who brought Wagner on board in part because he loved his work in the larger-than-life Game of Thrones. Yet Wagner’s not just comfortable working on maximalist epics—he’s also lensed episodes of Netflix’s The Crown and BBC’s Sherlock. With Venom 3, he’ll likely get to flex all his cinematography muscles; Venom remains one of the most singular, oddball antiheroes in the Sony/Marvel canon, and while his appetite for destruction is outsized, so, too, is his fondness for a quip.

Venom 3 is slated to arrive in October 2024.
