VENOM: THE LAST DANCE Crew Gift Seemingly Reveals The Threequel's Sinister Villain

VENOM: THE LAST DANCE Crew Gift Seemingly Reveals The Threequel's Sinister Villain VENOM: THE LAST DANCE Crew Gift Seemingly Reveals The Threequel's Sinister Villain

The Venom: The Last Dance stunt team was gifted a very cool piece of merch for the upcoming threequel, but does it confirm who Eddie Brock will square off with in the movie? Find more details right here...

Shooting has wrapped on Venom: The Last Dance and with a little over five months before it arrives in theaters, we're hoping an official first look is somewhere on the horizon. 

Sony Pictures could do with a win after delivering flops like Morbius and Madame Web, but only time will tell whether the Venom threequel can give them one. After all, most fans aren't expecting much from Kraven the Hunter, a movie recently pushed back to December 13. 

Now, a first look at the stunt team's crew gift has been revealed and it may reveal Venom: The Last Dance's big bad. 

As you can see in the X post below, green is being used for the "3" in the movie's logo, while three green slashes can also be seen across the Symbiote's unmistakable face. 

Looking at the comics, we have to believe this is meant as a reference to Lasher. First appearing in the pages of Venom: Lethal Protector #4 in 1993, he's an offspring of Venom, created by the Life Foundation's attempts to replicate the success of the Venom symbiote.

Lasher's human host is Ramon Hernandez, a mercenary who was given the symbiote along with four others, forming a superpowered team tasked with protecting the company. 

While the character isn't as well known as Carnage, for example, this wouldn't be the first time Sony has plucked a relatively obscure symbiote from the comics to pit against Eddie Brock. In the first movie, he clashed with Riot, a baddie equally unknown to general audiences. Of course, while this merch points to Lasher, we may also see Scream, Agony, and Phage. 

Chiwetel Ejiofor (Doctor Strange) has landed a lead role in the threequel, though there's currently no word on who he's playing; the most popular theory online is that he's been cast as The Jury's General Orwell Taylor. Juno Temple (Ted Lasso) and Clark Backo (Letterkenny) have also boarded the threequel in undisclosed roles.

We're also expecting Michelle Williams to reprise her role as Anne Weying, a.k.a. She-Venom. 

As well as returning as Eddie Brock, Tom Hardy also co-wrote Venom: The Last Dance's story with director Kelly Marcel before she later penned the screenplay. Produced by Amy Pascal, Avi Arad, Matt Tolmach, and Hutch Parker, the movie is scheduled to arrive in theaters on October 25.

@Evansly - and another nameless forgettable symbiote, like the first movie.

I actually can’t remember the first villain’s name lol.

They squandered Carnage. What could’ve been a lasting franchise, is just a tepid action flick.

The first was good enough, had potential; Eddie & Venom made the film, as obviously the bad guy is just generic & forgettable. But by the second it all went to hell. The “relationship” metaphor was hit way too strong. Turning the movie into a romcom. A romcom featuring Carnage isn’t exactly Maximum Carnage.

@Matchesz - masked symbiote spiderman throughout and when the mask comes off at the end its revealed to be Garfield.

can Sony aka Amy and Avid not use Spider-Man or something or are they just absolute morons.

MisterDoctor217 - 5/10/2024, 1:15 PM
They should have gone with a non-symbiote villain I think.

It’s like the same all over again.

Or at least they should have not killed Carnage so quick and have him be a secondary villain in this movie.

But another Symbiote ?
Idk about that man
The1st
The1st - 5/10/2024, 1:38 PM
@MisterDoctor217 - They could of leaned into the Life Foundation or even the King of the Symbiotes storyline...even set up Agent Venom. Their hands have been tied though since they committed to making a Venom movie w/no Spidey imo. Yet, somehow...Spidey's characters continue to return, sans the wall crawler.

Yeah that’s true , Agent Venom would have been cool , but yeah Sony fumbled the ball all the time unfortunately

So...not Knull or Spider-Man? Or even Toxin? Like what the hell? With Knull especially, if this is supposed to be the last venom movie and you're not going to have Spider-Man in it (Probably) Then why not go for Knull? He is basically Venoms big bad at this point. Why in the [frick] would you go for a no name [frick]er like that? Oh yeah cause you wasted Carnage in the second movie and tried to make him sympathetic. Which is the complete opposite of his character. Ugh. This [frick]ing studio man.

TheVisionary25 - 5/10/2024, 1:21 PM
@Mrcool210 - while I didn’t like Let There Be Carnage , I never thought Cletus was sympathetic in that.

Also to be fair , having Knull would be weird since they have not really built up any kind of otherworldly threat besides the symbiote
Mrcool210
Mrcool210 - 5/10/2024, 1:23 PM
@TheVisionary25 - It may be weird but it would be a bigger threat overall and actually feel like a proper conclusion. With this guy what instead of Venom being freaked out it's a red one he will be freaked out it's a green one?. Besides the hive mind they establish in LTBC could play into Knull a little bit.

All this to say they should just have the villain be Spider-Man, but they won't. They will tease that they will. But they won't
TheVisionary25
TheVisionary25 - 5/10/2024, 1:29 PM
@Mrcool210 - oh I get it

If anything , they should have saved Carnage for the last one but oh well.

I’m surprised they aren’t doing Toxin seemingly since Stephen Graham doesn’t seeem to be back for this and they set him up in the last one.

I could see that…

Maybe Chiwetel Eijiofor’s Orwell Taylor (if that is who he is playing) has his own symbiote army but still wants Venom so he sends his own people after Eddie , one of which is Lasher?.

I could see Juno Temples or Clark Backo’s character as a part of that

Anyway , I have no interest in this regardless as of now since I haven’t really been a fan of this version thus far.

Wish they'd just go balls deep and give us Knull.
CorndogBurglar
CorndogBurglar - 5/11/2024, 8:20 AM
@HashTagSwagg - This entire series has been about screwing up characters.

Venom with no Spider-Man

Venom acting like a clown

Riot being way more generic and dangerous than he should be

Carnage being an absolute joke

What makes anyone think they would have done Knull any better?
HashTagSwagg
HashTagSwagg - 5/11/2024, 9:14 AM
@CorndogBurglar - Lets see, do I want to see a movie that goes more in depth about the Symbiotes and their origin and give us a conclusion to what they'd set up the previous two films when they had them hint at other symbiotes and what they'd do if they got to earth or do I want another copy paste Venom film about yet another single bad symbiote. I mean I'm not expecting Oscars but which film would you say sounds like the more interesting watch?

The plot of the movie should've been something along the lines of this:

Venom and Eddie are caught by the US Government and the symbiote is forcefully removed from him.

Venom, who is given a drug that reduces his ability to control his host, is given to a high ranking soldier, Flash Thompson, and is dubbed "Agent Venom." Meanwhile, Toxin/Mulligan seeks out Eddie, now readjusting to civilian life (or in prison, whichever works better), for advice on how to better bond with his new symbiote self.

A secondary villain is introduced in Mr. Negative. Agent Venom tries to take him down, but Toxin gets in the way. They fight, leading to Mr. Negative to accidentally deliver a killing blow to Eddie.

Unbeknowst to Mr. Negative, attacking Eddie inverts the latent symbiote residue within his body, and turns him into Anti-Venom. Anti-Venom quickly takes care of Mr. Negative and a free for all brawl ensues between the three symbiotic characters. The only thing that stops the fight is an alert from the symbiote hive-mind. The Anti-Christ (Anti-Venom) has been born and Knull is coming to kill it.

The final act is an all-out symbiote invasion, and Eddie convinces Flash to allow Venom to take full control. Upon the three defeating Knull. By defeating Knull, Venom becomes the king of the Symbiotes, gaining Knull's wings and his iconic white spider symbol. Venom tries to take Eddie back as his host, but they are no longer compatible due to Eddie's Anti-Venom. They are forced to say their final goodbyes to each other, with Venom vowing to change the Symbiotes because humanity has changed him, and Eddie vowing to defend the Earth alongside Toxin because Venom changed him.

The final shots are Anti-Venom and Toxin doing a final swing of their own, meanwhile Venom leading his army to war flying high in the air.

@KelvTwelve - seems like a lot for one movie.

Also I rather Mr Negative be saved for a proper Spider Man film

@KelvTwelve - My man, that is way too good of a plot for this movie.

Like seriously, sounds super awesome - which is why Sony would never do it.

Which is fine because I want Martin Li to be in a Spidey film anyway.
