"Venom" Officially Has A Sequel In The Works

A Venom sequel is officially in the works

That's why we're pleased to report today that Hardy will be back for Venom 2, which is now in development.

Say what you like about Venom - and the internet at large has, both for and against - but the Tom Hardy-starring comic book anti-hero movie made almost $1 billion at the worldwide box office. The outlet's informants also indicated that the terms of Marcel's agreement with Sony will see her serve as an executive producer in addition to the lead screenwriter.

Marcel co-wrote the script for the first film alongside Jeff Pinkner and Scott Rosenberg, basing the story off the Marvel Comics created by Todd McFarlane and David Michelinie.

But while Hyundai's concept is moving forward, it's unlikely to be appearing at a local dealership any time soon. Hyundai says it showcases technology that will be able to "take people where no vehicle has been before".

Venom was far from a ideal movie. Tom Hardy will return and so will Michelle Williams (hopefully with more to do this time) and Woody Harrelson as Carnage after his mid-credits debut in Venom. Looking at his interviews, he was frustrated during the first film's production over the decision to cut out most of the material he had the most fun shooting, which all sounded like the most colourful, outrageous stuff. A director has not yet been set, but Variety muses that Venom director Ruben Fleischer would be a maybe to return, as he is already busy with the long-awaited sequel to Zombieland. Hell, you could even say that Sony's standalone superhero romp was a bit of a chaotic mess, but one thing's for sure: Tom Hardy brought his A game and offered up one helluva performance.

Sounds like there's more juice left in Venom yet.
