Tom Hardy Shares New Venom 3 Set Photo As Filming Starts Again-TGN

This article covers a developing story. Continue to check back with us as we will be adding more information as it becomes available.


  • Sony’s Venom 3 has resumed filming after the SAG-AFTRA strike, with Tom Hardy sharing a new set photo to celebrate.
  • Hardy’s photo reveals a connection between Venom 3, Venom: Let There Be Carnage, and Spider-Man: No Way Home.
  • It remains unclear if Venom 3 will reference Eddie’s journey to the MCU, but more information is expected to be revealed as filming continues.



Sony’s Venom 3 starts filming again after the SAG-AFTRA strike concludes, and Tom Hardy shares a new set photo from the Marvel movie to celebrate. Venom 3 was confirmed by Sony in Spring 2022, and started filming in 2023 prior to the strike, but production paused while the actors union renegotiated their contract. In the film, Hardy returns as Eddie Brock, joining other members of the Venom 3 cast, which includes newcomers to the franchise Juno Temple and Chiwetel Ejiofor.

On Instagram, Tom Hardy shared a photo of himself back in costume on the set of Venom 3. He’s joined in the photo by the movie’s director, Kelly Marcel, who previously worked on the scripts for Venom and Venom: Let There Be Carnage before stepping into the role of director. Check out the image below.

Hardy’s caption includes a heart emoji and the stylized version of the movie’s unofficial title, written out as “V3NOM3.” He’s wearing the same tee and Hawaiian shirt combo that were seen in previous Venom 3 set photos, indicating he’s back in costume as Eddie Brock.

What Tom Hardy’s New Venom 3 Set Photo Reveals

Beyond Hardy’s photo showcasing some of the fun dynamic between himself and Marcel, it also offers a better look at his Eddie Brock costume. The logo on the t-shirt is more clearly visible and further teases a connection between Venom 3 and the Venom: Let There Be Carnage credits scene as well as the Spider-Man: No Way Home credits scene. In the former, Eddie and Venom are transported to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, where they see Spider-Man on TV. Though it was expected the scene would lead to a confrontation between Venom and Spider-Man in the MCU, the No Way Home credits scene saw Eddie being transported back to his home universe by way of Doctor Strange’s spell.

Since Hardy is wearing the same costume in the Venom 3 set photo as he did in the credits scenes where he traveled to and from the MCU, it stands to reason that part of the upcoming Sony Marvel movie will take place around the same time. What’s unclear is whether it’s before or after traveling to the MCU, though it makes more sense to be after. It’s also not yet known whether Venom 3 will actually reference Eddie’s short trip to the MCU, but it would be confusing to dress him in the same outfit and not at least pay lip service to his multiversal adventure.

With Venom 3 now filming again, hopefully more will be revealed about the Marvel movie and how it connects to the MCU or Sony’s Spider-Verse — if at all. The movie is currently scheduled for release in a little less than a year, so more will no doubt be revealed in 2024. For now, Hardy, Marcel and the Venom 3 cast and crew are back on set and working toward finishing the movie ahead of its release next year.
