Movie Pushed Back To June 2021

The freshly-titled Venom: Let There Be Carnage that was slated to hit theatres this Autumn has now been pushed back until 2021.

The sequel will find Andy Serkis in the director’s chair, while Tom Hardy will once again star as the titular character. Woody Harrelson, Colin O’Farrell, Michelle Williams, Reid Scott and Naomie Harris will also appear in the film.

Sony has just dropped this teaser –

For those uninitiated into the Spider-Man universe, Carnage is a red, even more villainous version of the supervillain Venom. In the film, he will be played by Harrelson, who was seen pummeled with bullets during a shoot on O’Farrell Street.

Sony is trying to use what they have to build their own shared universe, with a handful of projects in the works such as Morbius which will star Jared Leto and a Kraven The Hunter movie among others.

Today’s Venom announcement comes after Disney pushed back the releases of numerous Marvel movies, including Black Widow, Thor: Love And Thunder and Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness. On Monday, Warner Bros. also made several moves with DC Comics flicks, including shifting The Batman back a few months in 2021 and pushing Shazam! 2 to later in 2022.

Wonder Woman 1984, No Time To Die, In The Heights, F9 and Mulan are among the other 2020 films that have been postponed or moved back amid the pandemic.

Venom: Let There Be Carnage will now premiere on June 25th, 2021.
