Tom Hardy Shares Image of Venom 3 Script Featuring His Story Credit

Tom Hardy is becoming a bigger part of the Venom franchise by co-writing the script for Venom 3. Hardy will be working with regular Venom writer Kelly Marcel on the new movie and shared an image of the script’s front page on his social media account but had the title of the movie blocked out. It is not yet known who else will be back for the new film, although there has been plenty of interest from the likes of Andy Serkis, who could return to direct the next appearance of Hardy’s symbiote.

Sony’s Spider-Man-related movies have been hit and miss, and while Venom has been one of the biggest earners outside of the Spider-Man movies themselves, the films haven’t exactly brought a vast amount of praise from critics. After the humiliation of Morbius, Sony will be hoping that the next run of movies, including Kraven the Hunter, Madame Web, and of course, Venom 3, will be able to get things back on track.


While Venom: Let There Be Carnage brought Tom Hardy’s anti-hero within touching distance of Tom Holland’s Spider-Man. By the end of Spider-Man: No Way Home, Venom, or at least Hardy’s version, had been returned to his rightful place, but that doesn’t mean that Venom won’t face off against a Spider-Man at some point in the future. Andy Serkis commented on the possibility of crossovers last year. He said:

“There’s so much potential in the Venomverse for really interesting journeys before the kind of the inevitable happens. I think Kelly and Tom have been thinking about what is the next stage of the journey anyway. They would have thought of… They would have had some plans for where they could possibly go after this… You’ve got to. When you’re going into a franchise, you’ve got to think about the arc, of course. You can’t think about them just individually.”

Venom 3 Could Be Tom Hardy’s Final Outing in the Marvel Franchise

While Tom Hardy has been contributing to the latest Venom script, his time as the character could well be reaching the end of his journey, as he posted the same script image on his Instagram stories for a short while, along with the caption “Last Dance.” While it could mean that Venom will be moving away from Hardy’s version of the character and will reappear with a new actor in tow as a future MCU Spider-Man movie, no one knows, but Hardy has previously suggested that he has always wanted to start heading towards that goal. He previously said:

“I would be remiss if I wasn’t trying to steer any kind of connectivity. I wouldn’t be doing the job if I wasn’t awake and open to any opportunity or eventuality or be excited by that. Obviously, that’s a large canyon to leap, to be bridged by one person alone, and it would take a much higher level of diplomacy and intelligence, sitting down and talking, to take on an arena such as that. Should both sides be willing, and it be beneficial to both sides, I don’t see why it couldn’t be. I hope and strongly, with both hands, push, eagerly, towards that potential, and would do anything to make that happen, within what’s right in business. But it would be foolish not to head towards the Olympic Games if you were running 100 meters, so yeah! I want to play on that field.”
