We’ve got some casting news for you!

Venom producer has confirmed that Tom Hardy is on board the Venom sequel.

2018’s Venom was definitely a surprise hit, grossing more than films like Wonder Woman and Thor: Ragnarok, bringing in more than $800 million worldwide. 

“I can say that Tom Hardy will be back, magnificently playing that character as no one else can,” producer Amy Pascal told Fandango. “When you think of Venom, you’ll never be able to think of anyone but Tom Hardy sitting in that bathtub of lobsters. And once you saw Tom Hardy do this character, that’s all you needed to know.”

There are no concrete details of the sequel story line but it’s safe to assume that convicted serial killer Cletus Kasady played by Woody Harrelson, who made an appearance in the end scenes of the original, will make a comeback.
