There were a few burbles of foreboding before Venom turned up late last year, but the huge appetite for Tom Hardy's Eddie Brock and his lobster tank-dunking saw those burbles forced back down the burblers' throats, and the film took a stonking £671 million global box office return.

Now the new burbling is about a potential sequel, and now we've got the first confirmation that Hardy will be back as Brock for another film.

"I can say that Tom Hardy will be back, magnificently playing that character as no-one else can," producer Amy Pascal told Fandango. But what was it about Venom that worked, Amy?

"It's a couple of things," Pascal explained. "One of them is that Sony did a great job creating that franchise and giving it a life and giving it its own world. Then there's Tom Hardy. When you think of Venom, you'll never be able to think of anyone but Tom Hardy sitting in that bathtub of lobsters. And once you saw Tom Hardy do this character, that's all you needed to know."

Pascal's been a producer on all of the post-Andrew Garfield Spider-Man films - Homecoming, Into the Spider-Verse and the upcoming Far From Home - and said that "everybody would love to see" Spider-Man come up against Venom in a future film but didn't give much more away than that. The dream of a multiverse-enabled team-up between Spider-Men Garfield, Tobey Maguire and Tom Holland remains open.
