A $20 million salary is typical for celebrities of his caliber

Furthermore, a $20 million pay package is typical for stars of his caliber. His peers, such as Vin Diesel, Chris Hemsworth, and Ryan Reynolds, are paid similarly for their roles in Fast X, Extraction 2, and Spirited, in both. As of this writing, it's unclear whether Hardy has any contracts tied to Venom 3's box office income.

The actor could work out a profit-sharing arrangement

As Tom Cruise and many others have done, the actor could start negotiating a potential revenue contract as well as a first-dollar gross contract, which could increase his earnings. However, it is highly improbable that data would be made public.

Given that Hardy has appeared in notable projects for nearly 25 years, it makes sense for Sony to invest in his widely recognized star power, especially after both of Sony's Venom collaborations with him proved profitable.

In his Sony Spider-Man Universe debut

The actor made $7 million in his Sony Spider-Man Universe debut, and while his Let There Be Carnage salary has not been officially announced, it is expected to be in the $15-17 million range.

Having taken these figures into consideration, a $20 million payout for the upcoming Venom 3 film isn't necessarily a big jump; somewhat more, it is an expected increase.
