“Venom 3” Resumes Production as Tom Hardy Shares Photo

Good news, symbiote fans! Tom Hardy has revealed that production on Venom 3 is back at it. Hardy’s Eddie Brock and his alien alter ego Venom will be serving up a fresh film in late 2024.

Hardy took to social media this past Friday to share a photo and announce that production on the third film in the franchise has started back up again thanks to the resolution of the 118-day actors strike.

“The Last dance — thankfully we are back to shooting,” Hardy wrote in an Instagram post, which showed a photo of himself, co-writer/director Kelly Marcel, and stunt double Jacob Tomuri. “It’s been and continues to be a lot of fun this journey — there’s always hard turns to burn when we work but doesn’t feel as hard when you love what you do and when you know you have great material and the support at all sides, of a great team.”

Hardy paid special mention to Marcel, who is a longtime Venom scribe and is now finally directing a feature herself:

“I want to mention very briefly how proud of my director, writing partner and dear friend Kelly Marcel I am,” Hardy wrote, “watching you taking the helm on this one fills me with pride, it is an honour. Trust your gut, your instincts are always spot on.”

Venom 3 will find Hardy’s Eddie Brock/Venom mixing it up with some new friends, including Juno Temple and Chiwetel Ejiofor. The film was initially slated for a July 12, 2024, release date, but the dual strikes pushed it back, so now you can expect it on November 8, 2024.
