Venom sequel is definitely coming despite those awful reviews

A Venom sequel is officially in the works

The movie wasn't anyone's idea of a critical success (it got only 28% on Rotten Tomatoes), but it did the one thing it was supposed to do: make a lot of money.It's now sitting at $855 million, only $30 million less than another recent movie in the Spider-Man universe, Spider-Man: Homecoming, which was by all accounts a much better movie. It might not have been exactly critically acclaimed, but it definitely had its fans and there's a lot to admire in what Tom Hardy did with the character.

Michelle Williams and Woody Harrelson are also expected to return for a Venom 2 but as of yet, no director has been named.

A sequel to 2018's Venom has been in the gestation stage since the comic book spin-off became a semi-surprise smash, defying expectations that it was too weird (or simply not good) to make Aquaman money.

According to Entertainment Weekly, Sony have given the go-ahead for a second installment with Kelly Marcel rehired as the scriptwriter and an executive producer. He will be busy with Zombieland 2, and that could limit his availability for Venom 2. Venom 1 was directed by Rubin Fleischer, but it's not confirmed yet if he's coming back for the sequel. The first Deadpool was great, but that was mostly thanks to Ryan Reynolds' performance and the material he was given to work with. The film fared much better with audiences, however.

Sounds like there's more juice left in Venom yet. Carnage should certainly allow for that and it would be great to see more of She-Venom after the tiny hint in the first movie.
