Released in our theaters in 2018, Venom with Tom Hardy is the first film devoted to an enemy of Spider-Man. With 856 million dollars earned worldwide for a budget of 100 million, Ruben Fleischer’s film quickly made Sony want to start the sequel.

4 years later came out Let Be carnage, in which Eddie Brock (Hardy) and his symbiote face the terrible serial killer Cletus Kasady played by Woody Harrelson.

Directed by Andy Serkis, this sequel totals 502 million greenbacks for a budget of 90 million. A completely honorable result for a film released in the midst of a pandemic.

Last December, producer Amy Pascal announced to Collider who asks him about the possibility of a third opus to Venom: “We’re in the planning stages right now, but what we’re really focused on is getting everyone to come see No Way Home..”

Venom 3 is therefore in the early stages of development for the moment, but if we refer to the post-credits scenes of Andy Serkis’ film and that of Spider-Man: No Way home, it could well be that the symbiote finally meets Tom Holland’s Spider-Man…

As a reminder, the character, created in 1986 by David Michelinie and Todd McFarlane, has already fought Spider-Man, then played by Tobey Maguire, in Spider-man 3 by Sam Raimi. Topher Grace played the anti-hero.

WARNING, the rest of this article contains spoilers for Venom 2 and Spider-Man: No Way Home.

Venom is coming to the MCU…

In the post-credits scene of Venom 2: Let be carnage, Eddie and Venom find themselves on a quiet desert island. While watching a telenovela in their hotel room, the symbiote makes a revelation to his sidekick: “We all have a past.”

“80 billion light years from a hive of knowledge across the universes would blow your little brain”he nevertheless specifies to his host before proposing “a small fraction of what we symbiotes have experienced.”

The room then begins to shake, and the two characters find themselves in the same place, arranged differently. The television broadcasts the diary of J. Jonah Jameson (JK Simmons), editor of the Daily Bugle. The latter then reveals to the whole world that Peter Parker is hiding under the mask of Spider-Man.

Spider-Man’s identity is revealed to the world.

A revelation made at the very end of Far From Home, when Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal) managed to have him accused of his death.

We then discover that Eddie/Venom fell victim to Doctor Strange’s spell and was parachuted into the world of the MCU. This scene means that Tom Holland’s Spider-Man and Venom should finally meet.

In an interview with Collider last December for the release of No Way Home, Kevin Feige, the boss of Marvel, confirms the meeting of the 2 heroes:

From the moment Sony produced Venom, the film did so well, and Tom Hardy became so iconic as the character, it became clear that they had to meet.

And the first post-credits scene of Spider-Man: No Way Home seems to confirm this theory. We see Tom Hardy, leaning on a bar chatting with the bartender who tells him that in this world “there are a ton of people with superpowers”.

Eddie then discovers the existence of Iron Man, Hulk and Thanos and deduces that he must go to New York to speak to Spider-Man. But the latter is suddenly sent back to his world, not without having left a black drop on the counter. A piece of the symbiote therefore remained in the world of Peter Parker…

…but Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy) is sent back to his world

We then understand that the journalist inhabited by Venom was in another universe and that the latter was integrated into the world of Spider-Man and the Avengers because of the fate of Doctor Strange.

But when the wizard changes his spell so that no one remembers that Peter Parker is Spider-Man, all the villains who have come to do battle with Spider-Man are sent back to their world.

The piece of symbiote left by Eddie on the counter nevertheless suggests that a version of Venom remained in the MCU. It remains to be seen which actor will play the alien symbiote in this world.

Tom Hardy having been returned to his universe by Doctor Strange, it is not him who should take the role if a meeting between Spider-Man and Venom does indeed take place.

No release date has yet been announced, but Sony has already reserved slots for June 23 and October 6, 2023, for Marvel films whose titles have not yet been revealed. One of these dates could therefore correspond to the American release of Venom 3.
