A Venom 2 has officially been greenlit and writer Kelly Marcel has been tapped to pen the script. Along with Jeff Pinker and Scott Rosenburg, Marcel wrote the script for 2018’s Venom. Tom Hardy has also been confirmed to return to reprise his role has Eddie Brock/Venom, as have Michelle Williams and Woody Harrelson.
A director has not yet been confirmed, but with the first film’s director, Ruben Fleischer, working on his Zombieland sequel, we’re perhaps expecting to see someone new in the director’s chair.
Venom made over $850 million at the box office, so despite being a lacklustre adaptation, it’s no surprise to see a continuation. Plus, the post-credits scene with Woody Harrelson as Carnage was quite exciting, so we’re glad that he’ll get his chance to shine in the sequel.
Venom 2 will be released in October 2020.
