Venom 2

Recommended Posts

Links to our threads on Spider-Man 3 (2007) and Venom (2018).

Somebody observed a little while ago that making a sequel to Venom could be tricky, as the film -- which is currently the 7th-highest-grossing Marvel-based movie ever overseas (behind Avengers 1+2+3, Iron Man 3, Captain America: Civil War and Black Panther, in that order) and the 10th-highest-grossing worldwide (also behind Spider-Man 3, Spider-Man: Homecoming and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2) -- seemed to be so *unintentionally* funny that making a sequel which *intentionally* stayed true to the spirit of the original film, and captured the so-bad-it's-funny vibe that some audience members liked, could be a little difficult.

‘Venom’ Sequel in Works With Kelly Marcel Returning to Pen Script (EXCLUSIVE)
Following box office smash “Venom,” Sony Pictures is putting the wheels in motion for a sequel to the antihero adventure. The studio has tapped Kelly Marcel, one of the screenwriters from the first movie, to pen the script.
Sources close to the negotiation tell Variety that, although an exact amount couldn’t be unveiled, Marcel’s deal was a significant one. She will also executive produce the follow-up, which will see Tom Hardy return as the eponymous symbiote. Marcel was also a producer on the first pic. . . .
“Venom,” hailing from Sony Pictures’ arsenal of Marvel characters, grossed a massive $855 million worldwide. The news comes after the studio recently dated an untitled Marvel sequel for October 2020. Comic-book enthusiasts put the pieces together to assume that slot was for “Venom 2,” giving it the same release date as its predecessor.
Michelle Williams is expected to rejoin Hardy, as is Woody Harrelson, who will portray Carnage in the sequel. . . .
Prior to “Venom,” Marcel was best known for adapting another box office hit, “Fifty Shades of Grey.” She currently has a handful of films in development, including an Elvis Presley biopic and Disney’s “Cruella.” . . .

And of course everything looked fine in the text editor but then the formatting got screwed up after I hit the publish button, and now there is no way to fix anything without writing everything all over again. Bah.
