In a picture shared on Instagram, Hardy showed the cover of a script, the name of which was crossed out and instead drawn over with a small design of Venom sticking his tongue out, with the tongue ending in the number “3.”

Venom 3‘s story will once again come from Tom Hardy and Kelly Marcel, who provided the story for 2021’s Venom: Let There Be Carnage. Marcel has been on hand as a writer for all three Venom films now, with Hardy once again set to return as Eddie Brock.

It’s unclear exactly what Venom 3 will be about when it eventually lands in theaters, but after 2021’s Spider-Man: No Way Home, fans have been speculating that Hardy’s Venom and Spider-Man will finally meet. While Hardy has been advocating for that to happen for some time, it still remains to be seen whether or not either Tom Holland or Andrew Garfield’s version of the superhero will make an appearance.

Following its theatrical release on October 1, Venom: Let There Be Carnage broke pandemic box office records by becoming 2021’s second highest-grossing film in the U.S. with a domestic gross of over $200 million and a worldwide gross of over $480 million. Venom: Let There Be Carnage was directed by Andy Serkis from a screenplay written by Kelly Marcel, based on a story by Tom Hardy and Marcel. It features the return of the Oscar-nominated actor as the titular lethal protector.
