Sony’s upcoming Venom: Let There Be Carnage, which will see Tom Hardy return to the role of Eddie Brock, has been delayed for the third time.
Sony was quick to begin work on its own universe of Marvel characters following the critical and commercial success of 2018’s Venom. Last year, the studio planned to release two follow-up films with Jared Leto’s Morbius set to hit theaters in July and Venom 2 scheduled for October 2020. Unfortunately, 12 months after the Coronavirus pandemic first began to cause lockdowns in Europe and America fans are still waiting for both films to release.
Production on Venom: Let There Be Carnage began back in January 2019, and the film had wrapped filming before COVID-19’s emergence. In April, Sony announced that the film would be delayed from its October 2020 release date to June 25th, 2021. Earlier this month, the film was pushed back for a second time to September 17th.
In a surprise move from Sony, Venom: Let There Be Carnage has now been delayed again. The film will now release one week later on September 24th.
Fingers crossed, this will be the last delay for the hotly anticipated Tom Hardy sequel.
