As the delta variant of COVID-19 continues to derail plans for entertainment companies around the world, the theatrical release of Sony Pictures’ Venom: Let There Be Carnage has been pushed back yet again according to Variety, this time to October 15, 2021. This puts the movie’s current release date at over a year after the initial release date of October 2, 2020. Prior to today, the movie was set to premiere September 24.
Venom: Let There Be Carnage is the upcoming sequel to 2018’s Venom, a movie that divided audiences but nevertheless left some viewers hungry for more. While Venom uses Marvel Comics characters, the movies do not take place in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, as they are part of Sony’s licensing deal with Marvel that goes back decades and allows them the use of Spider-Man and Spider-Man adjacent characters.
Despite tepid reviews, Venom was a giant success for Sony, generating $855 million worldwide. In addition to Tom Hardy returning as the titular Eddie Brock/Venom, the sequel is set to star Woody Harrelson, Michelle Williams, Reid Scott and Noamie Harris and will introduce Marvel Comics favorite Carnage to moviegoers.
