At first glance, the idea of a “Venom” film that is almost wholly unconnected to the “Spider-Man” universe may have appeared outlandish to some.
“Venom” and “Venom: Let There Be Carnage” have made symbiotic antihero one of Sony’s most essential Marvel characters, as well as the star of a billion-dollar series, since their release in 2018 and 2021 respectively.
The future of Eddie Brock seems tremendously bright thanks to Tom Hardy’s definitive take on the twin roles. And as “Let There Be Carnage” winds down, fans are wondering what Venom will be up to in his upcoming third outing, which is all but certain.
Even while the final film’s mid-credits twist hinted at where the series and the main character might go from here, there have been few definitive answers. That being said, let’s dig right in and see what we can learn about the yet-untitled “Venom 3.”
Venom 3: Release Date
Despite the problems that Covid-19 has produced with virtually every movie production, the first Venom movie was released in 2018 and the second one is scheduled for release in 2021. In the current state of affairs, we’d be astonished if the next film was released before 2024 at the earliest.
While Venom: Let There Be Carnage hasn’t garnered a great reception from critics, it has fared much better with fans, who have given it an 84 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes. It also did well at the box office, collecting over $286 million worldwide, despite its release during the pandemic.
Who will return in Venom 3?
Since the second “Venom” film ended with Eddie Brock and his titular symbiote going through some major changes in their lives, there are currently few firm answers as to the cast of a prospective third picture.

Carnage (Woody Harrelson) and Shriek (Naomie Harris) appear to have been killed in the climax of the second film, but “Venom: Let There Be Carnage” hints at a future for Stephen Graham’s Patrick Mulligan, who in the comic book becomes an antihero named Toxin.
With Venom and Eddie finally coming into the Marvel Cinematic Universe in “Let There Be Carnage,” the spotlight will be on Marvel and Sony to see how Hardy does against Tom Holland’s Spider-Man.
Will Spider-Man feature in Venom 3?
No. At this point, it doesn’t seem like Eddie will meet Wallcrawler from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He could run into another Spidey in his realm, but since Venom was returned to his own dimension after No Way Home, the chances of him running into Tom Holland’s Spidey are small.
The symbiote did leave a fragment of itself in the MCU, so it’s possible that Marvel’s Spider-Man will run into it at some point.
What will be the storyline of Venom 3?
There is no official plot for Venom 3 right now, but owing to the end of Venom: Let There Be Carnage, we can get a sense of the movie’s direction. After a potentially fatal injury, Detective Mulligan, who had been a kind guy up until that point, opens his eyes and they are light blue.
This suggests that Mulligan, like his comic book counterpart Toxin, will one day become toxic. Like Carnage and Venom, Toxin is intended to be an offspring of Carnage. Essentially, this means that Venom is the great-grandparent of Toxin, but don’t dwell on that for too long.
In essence, Toxin combines the best traits of its ancestors, making it a formidable opponent. Films, even if they aren’t innately evil, may not show this reality off, to begin with.
