Later this year, Sony Pictures will be releasing the third film in its “Venom” series, which sees Tom Hardy return as journalist Eddie Brock, along with the alien symbiont.  No plot details for the third film have been announced.

While Sony Pictures has had some great box office success with the three “Spider-Man” movies that were made in conjunction with Marvel Studios, its solo offerings have been very hit-and-miss.  While the first “Venom” movie was a huge success, “Madame Web” and “Morbius” were box office duds, and with superhero fatigue now a major concern for the studios, who have oversaturated the market with shows and films over the past few years, it looks like Sony is also pulling back on how much Marvel related content it puts out.

Sony has already delayed the release of “Kraven The Hunter” a couple of times, and earlier this week, it was revealed that the “Silk” series had been cancelled as well, though it was pushing ahead with a “Spider-Man: Noir” series. 

Recently, Sony Motion Pictures Group chairman Tom Rothman spoke with Deadline at the Cannes Film Festival, where he revealed that the next “Venom” movie will be the last in the series.

The third and last Venom, is going to be huge.

He also confirmed that the next two big releases featuring Spider-Man are what they are focused on:

Let me tell you when the last of the Spider-Verse movies comes with Phil Lord and Chris Miller, it’s going to be a significant event, as will the next Tom Holland Spider-Man film.

“Venom: The Last Dance” is set to arrive in cinemas on October 25th, 2024. Due to Disney’s Pay Two Window deal in the United States, we should expect the movie to arrive on Disney+ around two years later.

The first “Venom” movie is also available to stream on Disney+ in many countries around the world, which was part of a global streaming deal for some limited, non-exclusive access to a small select number of Marvel films.

Roger’s POV: Personally, I think it makes sense for Sony to pull back its plans for its Spider-themed universe.  Simply putting out superhero movies expecting them to become billion-dollar hits is no longer guaranteed, and Sony’s villain-focused movies aren’t working, since fans want to see these villains facing off with Spider-Man, it makes sense for Sony to scale back its plans, though that doesn’t necessarily mean we couldn’t see Venom also make the jump to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, considering the use of the multiverse and the little easter egg in “Spider-Man: No Way Home” with a tiny part of Venom remaining behind.

What do you think of the “Venom” series coming to an end?  Let me know on social media!
