When “Venom 3” was briefly teased at Cinema Con 2022, fans of Sony’s Spider-Man spinoff movie were excited and relieved. But since then, we’ve only gotten a few brief teases of what the film will hold. Of course, the last time we saw Tom Hardy’s Eddie Brock and his trusty companion Venom, the pair went on adventures through the multiverse. Sony’s Venom leads ended up in the MCU, but not for long. At the end of Spider-Man: No Way Home, Eddie Brock returns to his own universe. And we assume that’s where we’ll find him (and most of Venom) in the third Venom film.

Here’s everything we know about Venom: The Last Dance.



According to Variety, the official title for the third Venom film is Venom: The Last Dance. This seems a bit ominous, tbh.

Venom: The Last Dance‘s Plot

At this time, we don’t know anything specific about Venom: The Last Dance‘s plot. We only know that Eddie Brock is back in his own universe after his MCU visit. We assume Venom has also traveled back with him, despite the little gob of Venom goo left behind in the MCU. While we do not doubt that the new MCU Venom bud will seek to cause Tom Holland’s Peter Parker a lot of trouble in a potential Spider-Man 4, that likely won’t factor too much into Venom: The Last Dance.

Tom Hardy

Tom Hardy did tease a behind-the-scenes image of Venom: The Last Dance, which involves Eddie yelling at a wolf. Whether this will prove meaningful, we’ll have to wait and see. Whatever awaits us in Venom: The Last Dance, we can bet it will involve more of Eddie Brock and Venom snarking at one another and a great mix of comedy and tragedy.

A recent behind-the-scenes photo shared by Hardy also hints at the timeline of the movie. The image Hardy revealed shows his Eddie Brock wearing the same shirt as he was wearing when he was cast back into his own universe from the MCU’s world. This, of course, happened during the mid-credits scene of the most recent Spider-Man movie. The shared wardrobe seems to confirm the movie will pick up directly after the events of Spider-Man: No Way Home.

Venom: The Last Dance‘s Cast

Thankfully, Tom Hardy will return as Eddie Brock for Venom: The Last Dance. Alongside him, Ted Lasso’s Juno Temple has joined the movie, as will Chiwetel Ejiofor. We don’t know details on either of their roles yet. Clark Backo is also slated for an undisclosed role.

Regarding returning actors, there has been no news yet of any actors other than Tom Hardy reprising their Venom or Venom: Let There Be Carnage roles.
