Tom Hardy’s Venom 2 now has an official working title.
Tom Hardy’s symbiotic sequel is reportedly gearing up to start production in November according to Production Weekly. But Venom 2 has already been given an official working title for when shooting starts and it’s “Fillmore.”
While Fillmore doesn’t immediately have any comic book ties or easter eggs relating to Tom Hardy’s Venom, the only notable reference is The Fillmore music venue in San Francisco. Since the first Venom film saw Tom Hardy’s Eddie Brock living in San Francisco, that seems like the only logical connection.
Tom Hardy is set to reprise his role as Eddie Brock in the upcoming Venom sequel. Andy Serkis will direct and Kelly Marcel will pen the script for Venom 2 with Tom Hardy’s co-stars set to include returning actors Michelle Williams and Woody Harrelson. It is widely believed Sony intends to release Tom Hardy’s Venom 2 on October 2, 2020, a date the studio is currently holding for an untitled Marvel project.
The first Venom movie follows Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock as he attempts to revive his journalism career by investigating the Life Foundation only to come into contact with an alien symbiote that bonds with him, granting him powers and transforming him into the titular anti-hero. It’s the second iteration of Venom seen on the big screen as Topher Grace played the character in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 3.
Venom is currently available on Digital HD, 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack, Blu-ray Combo Pack, and DVD.
