It’s a big year for Sony’s Spider-Man-adjacent comic book universe. The year started with Madame Web connecting them all (if not at the box office, where it’s yet to reach the $100 million mark worldwide) – and this summer, we’ll see Aaron Taylor-Johnson make his debut as the title character of J.C. Chandor’s Kraven The Hunter. And beyond that, there’s a third film to come from the ‘SPUMC’ (as it was once known) in 2024 – Tom Hardy’s third outing as Venom. Now, some fresh details have emerged about what’s in store.

The film has received the official title Venom: The Last Dance – a title that indicates a possible trilogy-capping final chapter. Or, perhaps, a Magic Mike-esque bout of male stripping. Perhaps even both. The film – both written and directed by Kelly Marcel, who co-wrote on Venom and Venom: Let There Be Carnage – also has a new release date, set to hit screens on 25 October. The film, as previously reported, also sees Juno Temple, Clark Backo and Chiwetel Ejiofor entering the fray – the latter most likely not playing his Doctor Strange villain Mordo.

It remains to be seen how The Last Dance (wait, will there be a Julia Stiles hip-hop dance sequence?) might address Eddie Brock’s brief appearance in the MCU. At the end of Let There Be Carnage, he was blasted into the main Marvel universe thanks to Doctor Strange’s spell in No Way Home, before being swiftly zapped back to the Sony-verse again come the end credits. It was such a fleeting trip, it could be glossed over entirely. We’ll find out for sure this October.
