Tom Hardy's Venom won't be out in theaters until later this year, but Sony is already planning two more movies with the anti-hero.

In an interview with Total Film Magazine, Hardy revealed that he's signed a multi-movie contract.

"I'm open to whatever you want to do with it. We've signed up for three of them. So it's very much an open case," he told the magazine, according to ComicBookMovie."We'll see what people's responses are to it. I think it's an awesome character. I love playing both of them. It's an amuse-bouche, and for Sony, it's the Venom-verse launched in isolation, as it were. We all prepped for it to be a standalone universe. So whatever Sony want to attach to it at a later date, it's a fulcrum piece. But let's see what happens when it lands."

So far, Venom has earned a mixed reaction from fans. While the trailer drew goosebumps, the film's possible PG-13 rating might hurt those looking to watch the bloodthirsty character go off. And even if it ends up doing badly in the box office, it wouldn't be the first time Sony had to scrap plans. Back in 2005, they had contracts done for three Fantastic Four movies but stopped after two.  Venom does look more promising—especially since Woody Harrelson is reportedly going to portray Cletus Kasady aka the villainous Carnage. But we'll know for sure when the movie drops.

Venom arrives in theaters on Oct. 5.
