Development and pre-production

Star Tom Hardy stated in August 2018 that he had signed on to play in three Venom films. In September 2021, Hardy stated that the producers would have to continue to develop Sony’s Spider-Man Universe (SSU) in future films but said they were also interested in crossing over with the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) more. Venom: Let There Be Carnage (2021) director Andy Serkis expressed interest in returning to direct another Venom film and felt there was more to explore with Venom in future films before the character could meet Spider-Man in a future crossover film,[10] including further exploration of the Ravencroft Institute and other potential villains being held there. In October, Tom Holland said he and producer Amy Pascal had discussed him possibly reprising his MCU part as Peter Parker / Spider-Man in future Venom sequels, after he made a cameo appearance in Let There Be Carnage via footage from the MCU film Spider-Man: No Way Home (2021). That December, Pascal said they were in the “planning stages” of Venom 3.

Sony Pictures announced the film was in development at CinemaCon in April 2022. In June, Hardy confirmed that Kelly Marcel was writing the screenplay after previously working on the prior Venom films and that he was co-writing the story with her. Hardy was set to be paid $20 million for his participation. Serkis was unable to return as director due to his commitments to Animal Farm, which he had delayed working on Let There Be Carnage, and Marcel signed on in October to make her directorial debut with the film, which was expected to finish the Venom trilogy. She was also set to produce the film alongside Avi Arad, Matt Tolmach, Pascal, Hutch Parker, and Hardy, all doing so through their various production companies Arad Productions, Matt Tolmach Productions, Pascal Pictures, Hutch Parker Entertainment, and Hardy, Son & Baker. Columbia Pictures also creates in association with Marvel Entertainment. Hardy stated in February 2023 that pre-production work had begun. Juno Temple began negotiations to join the cast in an undisclosed “lead role” in April. The next month, filming was supposed to begin in June in London, and Chiwetel Ejiofor joined the cast along with Temple. In June, the film was set for release in October 2024.


Principal filming began on June 26, 2023, at Los Mateos in Cartagena, Spain, as well as at the Calblanque Regional Park, under the working title Orwell. Fabian Wagner serves as the cinematographer after previously working as an additional cinematographer on Let There Be Carnage. The start of the 2023 SAG-AFTRA strike in mid-July 2023 led in filming being halted. Later that month, the film was set to release on July 12, 2024. When the actors’ strike finished in early November 2023, Sony delayed the film to release on November 8, 2024, filling the November 2024 date that the studio had previously reserved for an untitled Marvel film. Production was ready to resume at that time. Filming restarted on November 16. In February 2024, Clark Backo joined the cast in an undisclosed role, and Temple said at the end of the month that filming was nearly finished.


In March 2024, the film was renamed Venom: The Last Dance and its release date was moved forward to October 25, 2024. The first teaser trailer, released in June, revealed Peggy Lu and Stephen Graham were reprising their respective roles as Mrs. Chen and Patrick Mulligan from prior Venom films, as well as the castings of Rhys Ifans, Alanna Ubach, and Cristo Fernández. Ifans previously played Curt Connors / Lizard in Sony’s The Amazing Spider-Man (2012) and No Way Home, while Fernández appeared in No Way Home as a bartender who interacts with Brock after he is transported to the MCU via the multiverse. Germain Lussier at io9 questioned if the appearances of Ifans and Ejiofor, who played Karl Mordo in the MCU, were less worried about continuity with the MCU and were instead commentary on the multiverse, rather than being related to their prior roles. Molly Edwards of Total Film was also confused by the reference to the mid-credits scene of No Way Home in the trailer, since the Venom films are set in a different continuity than the MCU.

Release Theatrical Venom: The Last Dance is set to be theatrically released by Sony Pictures Releasing in the United States on October 25, 2024, in IMAX and other premium large formats (PLFs).The film was originally supposed to be released in October 2024 before it was given a release date of July 12, 2024, when Sony adjusted their release schedule due to the SAG-AFTRA strike. After the strike finished, the film’s release was delayed to November 8, 2024, before it was moved forward and returned to the October 2024 timeframe.

Home media

Sony signed deals with Netflix and Disney in April 2021 for the rights to their 2022 to 2026 film slate, following the films’ theatrical and home media dates. Netflix signed for exclusive “pay 1 window” streaming rights, which is usually an 18-month window and included future Venom films following Venom: Let There Be Carnage. Disney signed for “pay 2 window” rights for the films, which would be streamed on Disney+ and Hulu as well as aired on Disney’s linear television networks.
