Due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, the sequel to ‘Venom’, the 2018 Tom Hardy-starred Spider-Man spin-off, titled ‘Venom: Let There Be Carnage’ has been pushed back eight months, from October 2, 2020, to June 25, 2021.
By postponing the movie until next year, Sony has reshuffled nearly every movie scheduled to release in 2020. Sony also follows in the footsteps of Warner Bros owned DC Films, and Disney owned Marvel Studios.
Across Hollywood, studios are adjusting their release calendars as cinemas remain closed due to the coronavirus pandemic. The global health crisis has also caused almost every film to pause production, meaning some company’s tentpoles might have not been completed in time for their original debut.
Andy Serkis is directing the follow-up to “Venom,” The first film became a surprise box office hit, earning $855 million globally. ‘Venom: Let There Be Carnage’ stars Michelle Williams as Venom’s ex-fiancée Anne Weying, Reid Scott as Anne’s boyfriend Dr. Dan Lewis, and Naomie Harris as new villain and Kasady’s love interest, Shriek.
