Sony is pushing back its Venom sequel release from this fall to summer 2021. The studio also announced the movie’s official title: Venom: Let There Be Carnage.
The pic had been set to hit theaters Oct. 2. It will now bow June 25, 2021, the date formerly occupied by Warner Bros.’ Batman reboot.
Venom 2 is the latest high-profile tentpole to see its release date changed because of production delays caused by the coronavirus pandemic. There also is a backlog of product to release because of massive theater closures.
Sony announced its most recent calendar change 24 hours after Warner Bros. postponed the bow of Matt Reeves’ The Batman from June 25, 2021, to Oct. 1, 2021.
Andy Serkis is directing Venom: Let There Be Carnage, which sees Tom Hardy reprise his role as the titular character. In 2018, Venom turned into a sleeper hit at the global box office on its way to earning $856 million.
