- Filming for Venom 3 has resumed after a 118-day strike, with Tom Hardy confirming his return to the set on Instagram.
- Venom 3 is set to be released on November 8, 2024, suggesting a rush to meet the deadline.
- Sony Pictures will dominate the superhero film scene in 2024, with Madame Web and Kraven the Hunter.
Tom Hardy has announced that he has returned to the set of Venom 3, after the film’s production was halted earlier this year due to an actors’ strike. After 118 days, the strike has ended and multiple productions, including Venom 3, have resumed filming. Hardy took to Instagram to share an image from the set, confirming that filming directed by Kelly Marcel is back underway.
Venom 3 is slated for a November 8, 2024 release date, which could explain the urgency in resuming filming. Plot details are scarce, but following the post-credit scenes of Venom: Let There be Carnage and Spider-Man: No Way Home, it seems unlikely that the story will explore the multiverse as previously believed. Hardy’s anti-hero character Eddie Brock must adjust back to life in his own world after a brief MCU appearance, but there is no official confirmation of the story yet.
Joining Hardy in Venom 3 are Juno Temple and Chiwetel Ejiofor, although their roles have not been disclosed. New cast members are expected to be announced now that filming has resumed.
In 2024, Sony Pictures will dominate the superhero film scene with three releases: Madame Web, Kraven the Hunter, and Venom 3. Madame Web, starring Dakota Johnson, is set for a February 14 release and follows a paramedic with clairvoyant abilities. Kraven the Hunter, featuring Aaron Taylor Johnson as the titular Spider-Man villain, will be released on August 30 and focuses on Russian immigrant Sergei Kravinoff’s journey to become the best hunter in the world.
Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse was also originally scheduled for a 2024 release, but due to production delays, it does not have a release date yet. It is expected to reach theaters in 2025 or 2026.
