Doctor Strange star Chiwetel Ejiofor joins Tom Hardy in Venom 3, the upcoming sequel for the Sony/Marvel franchise.

Deadline reports that Chiwetel Ejiofor has signed on to star in Venom 3 alongside Tom Hardy.

There’s no word on who Chiwetel Ejiofor will be playing in Venom 3, but the actor is no stranger to comic-book movies. He played Karl Mordo in Doctor Strange and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Juno Temple (Ted Lasso) is also set to star in Venom 3.

According to Tom Hardy, pre-production on Venom 3 began in February. Kelly Marcel, who wrote Venom: Let There Be Carnage and co-wrote the first film with Jeff Pinkner and Scott Rosenberg, will take over directing duties for Venom 3. She also wrote the screenplay based on a story she developed with Tom Hardy.
