Hardy's Venom is nearly two years removed from his last big-screen appearance in the post-credits scene from Spider-Man: No Way Home, which gave him his quick moment of MCU glory as the Multiverse got its first true shine.
And while there are no signs pointing to where Eddie Brock and his alien companion will go in Venom 3, their trip to another dimension is going to have a profound impact on their next wild adventure together under Sony Pictures.
Venom 3 Set Photos Highlight Tom Hardy
Twitter user @SpiderMan3news shared the first set video from Venom 3, showing Tom Hardy in action as Eddie Brock/Venom.
Hardy is shown walking down a road next to some old buildings, seemingly wearing a Hawaiian shirt and sandals.
Interestingly, the outfit actually looks similar to the one he wore during his post-credits scene from Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures' Spider-Man: No Way Home. That film ended with Brock going back to his own universe after Doctor Strange fixed his spell making the world forget about Peter Parker, which could be where this scene picks up.
The full video can be seen below:
Where Will Tom Hardy's Venom Go in Venom 3?
With Tom Hardy teasing that Venom 3 will be the "last dance" for him in this memorable role, the big question now is what exactly Eddie Brock will be up to as he finds himself back home in his own universe
The only other imagery from the set of Venom 3 teased that the movie will take place during Día de los Muertos, which could be where this video picks up with Eddie considering how dark it is outside.
Fans also wait for more information on which new characters will be seen alongside Hardy, as Doctor Strange's Chiwetel Ejiofor and Ted Lasso's Juno Temple are reportedly in play to appear next to him in this Sony production.
And with a couple of epic battles already under his belt after his fight against the alien Symbiote Riot in Venom and Woody Harrelson's terrifying take on Carnage in Venom: Let There Be Carnage, only time will tell who he faces this time around.
Venom 3 is rumored to be released in theaters in October 2024.
