Speaking to Esquire, the 43-year-old star - who plays the leading role of Eddie Brock, aka Venom - explained that he's already planning ahead and he wants there to be a Venom/Spider-Man face off at some point as well.
"I'm thinking about the third movie," he told the publication, adding: "Because I think you need to write that at the same time.
"A third won't be greenlit until the second is successful, but the studio [was] really, really pleased with number two."
Potentially good news, then - and it's reason enough for us to get even more excited for the September release of Venom: Let There Be Carnage.
When asked whether a meet-up with Spider-Man - Venom's nemesis in the original Marvel comics - could be a possibility, he went on to add: "I would be remiss if I wasn't trying to steer any kind of connectivity.
"I wouldn't be doing the job if I wasn't awake and open to any opportunity or eventuality or be excited by that.
"Obviously, that's a large canyon to leap, to be bridged by one person alone, and it would take a much higher level of diplomacy and intelligence, sitting down and talking, to take on an arena such as that.
"Should both sides be willing, and it be beneficial to both sides, I don't see why it couldn't be. I hope and strongly, with both hands, push, eagerly, towards that potential, and would do anything to make that happen, within what's right in business.
"But it would be foolish not to head towards the Olympic Games if you were running 100 metres, so yeah! I want to play on that field."
He's a smart man, isn't he?
Hardy returns once again as Eddie Brock, a journalist who plays host to the alien symbiote Venom. The film also features Michelle Williams and Woody Harrelson.
We first saw Harrelson as Cletus Kasady, a prisoner who has his own symbiote buddy - called Carnage - at the end of the first film, which prepared everyone for the plot of this sequel.
The film - like so many other things - was delayed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
It will be released on 15 September in the UK and 24 September in the US.
