And so, it shouldn't be surprising today to see that Sony has officially started work on the film's sequel, which was already teased in Venom's ending credits sequence. She will also executively produce the film.
According to Variety, Marcel is getting a "significant" payday for Venom 2, though a specific figure was not disclosed. In all, Venom brought in a staggering $855 million, becoming the sixth-highest-grossing film of 2018.
Venom marked the first instalment in a shared cinematic universe dubbed "Sony's Universe of Marvel Characters", and Sony is next moving ahead with a Morbius, the Living Vampire movie starring Jared Leto, which is scheduled for release on July 10th 2020.
If you liked Tom Hardy's sci-fi blockbuster Venom, you'll be thrilled to know that a sequel may have received the official green light. What's more is that Michelle Williams is expected to return as well, with Woody Harrelson locked in to portray Carnage, who'll act as the pic's main villain. It's unlikely we'll see original Venom director Ruben Fleischer return as he will likely be busy shooting the Zombieland sequel.
The sequel is to be produced by Avi Arad, Matt Tolmach, and Amy Pascal. She now has a handful of films in development, including an Elvis Presley biopic and Disney's "Cruella".
