Sony Sets November 2024 Date For ‘Venom 3’ As SAG-AFTRA Strike Ends

Maybe you missed it, but the SAG-AFTRA strike is over! And that means to expect a flurry of announcements as productions get rolling again. One of the first major films to plant a new flag is Venom 3, which Sony has now set for a November 8th 2024 release. The Marvel sequel had previously been pegged for July 14th, but the strike made that an impossibility.

Tom Hardy is obviously back as Eddie Brock, the struggling journalist who turned “lethal protector” when bonded with a very-hungry alien symbiote.  Hardy also developed the Venom 3 story and co-wrote the script with the film’s director, Kelly Marcel.

2018’s Venom was a huge hit for Sony with $856M worldwide, establishing their Marvel spinoff universe with Spider-Man adjacent characters. 2021’s Venom: Let There Be Carnage fared less successfully with $506M but also arrived at a tough time for theaters in general. Expect more details on the Venom 3 storyline and Hardy’s co-stars to arrive soon. Chiwetel Ejiofor and Juno Temple had previously been cast but it’s unclear if that will stick considering all of the delays.  [Deadline]
