Fans Confused by Mordo’s Role in Venom 3 Trailer

Venom

Marvel fans are puzzled by a character’s appearance in the trailer for Venom 3.

On Wednesday (3 June), Sony unveiled the first look at Venom: The Last Dance, the third and final installment in the Spider-Man spin-off franchise. Historically, Sony’s Spider-Man universe existed separately from the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) due to licensing rights. However, recent collaborations between the studios have blurred these boundaries. For instance, Tom Hardy, the star of the Venom series, made a cameo in a mid-credits scene of Spider-Man: No Way Home, set in the MCU. Now, in the trailer for The Last Dance, another MCU character appears, causing confusion among fans.

The trailer features Chiwetel Ejiofor reprising his role as Karl Mordo, originally introduced in Doctor Strange and seen again in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. This time, however, Mordo is dressed in military gear, leading a team of operatives to capture Venom. This portrayal is a stark contrast to the Mordo seen in the Doctor Strange films, suggesting he might be a different version of the character.

This has led to confusion among fans, especially since Mordo appears at the same location as Venom from the No Way Home post-credits scene. This implies that The Last Dance is set within the MCU, yet the inconsistencies suggest otherwise. Some fans speculate that this might be an alternative version of Mordo, raising questions about continuity. One fan commented, “So you’ve got Chiwetel Ejiofor in Venom 3 as a new character, which takes place in its own universe. But right here he’s in the MCU & he’s not playing Baron Mordo, who he previously played in the MCU… & he’s taking back the symbiote that was left in the MCU. Good Job Sony!” Another fan added, “I have questions. Like, why cast the actor that plays Mordo? Why was not-Mordo in 616 collecting the symbiote? Doesn’t that ruin No Way Home’s end credit scene?”

Moreover, another MCU enthusiast expressed on X/Twitter, “Am I the only one finding it weird that Mordo is now in Venom: The Last Dance? Not complaining though because I like the guy, but the multiverse is making it weird.”
