Tom Hardy’s upcoming third and potentially final Venom film is seemingly adding quite a bit of talent, as Ted Lasso’s Juno Temple has been revealed to have a role in the upcoming threequel. Not just that but she is seemingly taking on a lead role opposite Hardy, but there’s now ord on who she might be playing. It seems negotiations are still underway and her casting remains tightly under wraps as per usual with these kinds of announcements.
Andy Serkis surprisingly isn’t returning to direct the third entry, as it’ll be directed by Kelly Marcel, who was the writer of the series since the first entry. She and Hardy have worked on the screenplay for the film with the usual Sony crew back to produce, which includes Amy Pascal, Avi Arad, Matt Tolmach, and Hutch Parker. There is no word if anyone else from the previous entries will return in the upcoming sequel.
Venom is a curious entry in Sony’s hope to expand its own Spider-Man universe. It originally set out to do so but mostly did its own thing and is the only project that is acknowledged by the mainline Marvel Cinematic Universe with Hardy’s appearance in the Spider-Man: No Way Home post-credit sequence. There’s a chance that the thrid entry is the final one as a last hurrah for this take on the character before Marvel is allowed to make use of that little tease at the end of the Spider-Man crossover film.
