Sony has revealed that the release of Venom 3 is planned for summer 2024, sooner than initially expected, to the delight of fans. The awaited sequel to Venom is set to compete at the box office with Disney’s Mufasa: The Lion King and Universal’s Twisters. Despite a directorial change and the addition of Chiwetel Ejiofor to the cast, Sony shows optimism in delivering the eagerly awaited sequel.
Sony, amidst a flurry of release date declarations, has stated that Venom 3 is set to premiere in the summer of 2024. The third instalment in the Tom Hardy-led series, following 2018’s Venom and 2021’s Venom: Let There Be Carnage, will make its debut on July 12, 2024.
Since its announcement in 2022, Hardy’s Eddie Brock and his symbiotic counterpart have been preparing for their big-screen comeback with Venom 3 progressively moving towards production. The revised release date will undoubtedly excite fans of the anti-hero, as it pushes the sequel’s release earlier than initially planned. Last month, actress Juno Temple had shared that the forthcoming production was planned for an October 2024 release. The English actress also expressed her enthusiasm about commencing filming “very, very soon.”
Venom 3 faces a considerable challenge, being the first time the narrative of Brock and his symbiote ally will air in the summer. The previous instalments both debuted in theaters at the beginning of October in their respective years, grossing $856 million and $502 million at the global box office respectively. However, it’s crucial to remember that the revenue from Let There Be Carnage was influenced by post-pandemic circumstances. When Venom 3 hits theaters, it will compete with Disney’s Mufasa: The Lion King and Universal’s Twisters, both slated for release on July 5 and July 19, 2024, which places Venom 3 right in the middle, battling for box office earnings.
Venom 3 will witness a shift in the director’s chair for the project. Kelly Marcel, who had written the scripts for the previous films, is taking over as director. Alongside changes in the creative team, the cast list has been updated as well, with Chiwetel Ejiofor of Marvel fame joining the crew. Despite production setbacks due to the ongoing strike, the choice to advance the release date implies Sony’s confidence in delivering the sequel on time.
