Sony Pictures has approved a sequel to the two films. The production company has announced its plans for the future of the Venom and Ghostbusters films.
The studio announced Monday that it has made a sequel to Venom and Ghostbusters at CinemaCon at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas.
After the first two Venom films broke box office records, audiences awaited the sequel. The first film starring Tom Hardy made an impressive $213.5 million domestically and $856 million worldwide from its $100 million budget.
The studio greenlit its 2021 sequel Venom: Toxic Fury 2 (Venom: Let There Be Carnage). The sequel did the same at the box office.

Ghostbusters: Afterlife, on the other hand, brought a new breath to the series by connecting new characters to the characters in the original film. The cast includes Paul Rudd, Carrie Coon, McKenna Grace, Finn Wolfhard, Logan Kim and original Ghostbusters stars Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, Annie Potts and Sigourney Weaver.
Despite its star power, the film opened strong at $44 million, but grossed just $129.3 million at the domestic box office and $197.3 million worldwide. However, an agreement was reached to continue the series.
At this time, no information has been given about the directors of the films, their vision dates, or when filming will begin.
