Sony Pictures has officially delayed Venom 3 following the conclusion of the SAG-AFTRA strike, but the company hopes to begin filming soon to avoid further delays.
Venom 3 was originally slated to hit theaters in July 2024. However, with the SAG-AFTRA strike hitting smack dab in the middle of the studio’s filming schedule, it was clear the film would experience delays. It’s now been confirmed by Sony Pictures that the film will be pushed back to November 8, 2024, with hopes to resume filming before the year’s end to make the new release date.
Interestingly, this delay puts Venom 3 less than 3 months out from Sony Pictures’ other Spider-Man villain film in 2024: Kraven the Hunter. Given the Venom franchise has had a largely positive reception among fans, it’s possible this movie could serve to cannibalize sales for the Kraven film if moviegoers opt to wait for the well-tested character.
What to expect from the next Venom movie
Avi Arad, Matt Tolmach, Amy Pascal, and Hutch Parker are producing Venom 3. The four were also involved with the first two Venom movies, which were directed by Ruben Fleischer and Andy Serkis. Kelly Marcel is making her directorial debut with the third installment.
Venom and its follow-up Venom: Let There Be Carnage earned a combined $1.36 billion at the worldwide box office. Following their release, Tom Hardy reprised his role as the anti-hero for the post-credits scene of Spider-Man: No Way Home, setting up the long-awaited arrival of the Symbiote suit for Tom Holland’s Peter Parker.
