Just when we thought Venom: Let There Be Carnage wouldn’t be delayed again, it’s being delayed again, but just by three months.

Originally this Venom sequel was supposed to be released a few months ago, in October of 2020, but Covid happened and it killed more movie release dates than anything else. The release date for Venom 2 was pushed due to the lockdowns that closed movie theaters worldwide. It was then set to release on June 25, 2021.

Andy Serkis is being brought on board to direct the Venom sequel. The movie is using a screenplay from Kelly Marcel, who co-wrote the first movie. Tom Hardy returns as Eddie Brock, the hard-hitting journalist. He’s also the host for the alien symbiote
known as Venom. Woody Harrelson is a new face in the sequel and stars as Cletus Kasady. Who, for those not familiar turns into Carnage, another alien symbiote. However, Kasady is a psychotic serial killer.

Rounding out the cast for the Venom sequel is Michelle Williams as Anne Weying, Reid Scott as Dan Lewis, and Naomie Harris as Shriek.

The first Venom movie released in 2018 and was directed by Ruben Fleischer. Although the first movie was considered successful by the box office numbers, bringing in $856 million worldwide and being one of the highest-grossing movies that year, critical reception was mixed. Fleischer wasn’t pleased with the negative reviews it got. He is excited to see where Serkis goes with the sequel,

“If anything, I would have changed the critics’ reaction to it,

“I was really bummed that people didn’t like it because it’s a crowd-pleasing movie and I’m not sure if there was just blowback against Sony or people just worship Marvel. But I was really surprised that the critics [were gunning for it] because audiences really enjoyed the movie. And so many people who’ve seen it just appreciated that it was a fun superhero movie. So I was a little surprised. I don’t know what they were expecting.”

He then added, speaking of Serkis –

“I was kinda happy to let somebody else take over. And I’m excited to see what he does with it.”

Venom: Let There Be Carnage is set to release on September 17, 2021 and it’ll have all the bells and whistles, including 3D, Imax, and premium large-screen formats.
