Whilst the release dates of many movies have been shifting over the past few weeks due to the current health emergency (including the MCU Phase 4 movie line-up being delayed earlier this month), the previously untitled Venom 2 was still set to hit the big screen on October 2nd. Unfortunately, that’s all changed, according to Deadline, who have reported that sequel to the 2018 blockbuster starring Tom Hardy as the alien symbiote enemy of Spider-Man has now moved to June 25th, 2021.
It’s not all bad news, however, as Deadline also revealed that the movie now has an official title: Venom: Let There Be Carnage.
If you’ve been following along closely with all of the release date re-shuffling, you’ll notice that the new date of June 25th next year for Venom: Let There Be Carnage was the planned date for The Batman, which has now shifted to October. It also means that the Venom sequel will once again follow the upcoming Morbius, which was moved from July of this year to March 19, 2021.
Both Morbius and Venom: Let There Be Carnage are predicted to setup up the release of Spider-Man 3 next July, which makes for a busy few months for Sony/Marvel MCU fans — although a Spider-Man 3 delay could still be announced in the future.
Venom: Let There Be Carnage is now set to release on June 25th, 2021.
