Tom Hardy has signed on to do three Venom films for Sony Pictures. The actor confirmed that in an article on the movie published in Total Film (as transcribed by ComicBookMovie).
"I'm open to whatever you want to do with it. We've signed up for three of them. So it's very much an open case," said Hardy. "We'll see what people's responses are to it. I think it's an awesome character. I love playing both of them. It's an amuse-bouche, and for Sony, it's the Venom-verse launched in isolation, as it were.
"We all prepped for it to be a standalone universe. So whatever Sony want to attach to it at a later date, it's a fulcrum piece," Hardy continued. "But let's see what happens when it lands."
Venom director said that the 'Venom-verse' as Hardy calls it was built with the option to expand.
"We definitely are thinking about this world as a big evolving world, and we want it to have the option of going in different directions. You'll have to see what groundwork has been laid."
Fleischer warns people not to expect big world-building pieces in Venom however.
"The movie's just all about Venom. so that's what we're focused on. It's introducing Eddie and Venom. And then as to where it goes from there? We'll have to see..."
Venom is scheduled to open in theaters October 5.
