Venom: Let There Be Carnage, the sequel to 2018’s Venom starring Tom Hardy, has been delayed.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, while the film was initially slated for theaters on October 2, 2020, fans will now have to wait until June 25, 2021.
Like many productions, the sequel has run into issues due to quarantine orders and the shut down of non-essential businesses while the world deals with Covid-19.
Both Tom Hardy (Peaky Blinders) and Michelle Williams (Fosse/Verdon) returned for the sequel which will also star Naomie Harris (28 Days Later) and Woody Harrelson (Zombieland). Harrelson made a brief appearance in a came at the end of the first film.
Plot details have been somewhat scare concerning Venom: Let There Be Carnage but it is safe to say that we will finally be seeing what we hope will be a quality Venom/Carnage showdown and with actors like Hardy and Harrelson in the role, it’s bound to be a hell of a ride.
While the first film got off to a slow slow start reporting only $80 million against its $100 million budget, it went on to gross over $856 million worldwide so it will be interesting to see how the new film plays at the box office.
