Venom’s sequel “Venom: Let There Be Carnage” has been pushed back once again as Fast 9 took over its releasing slot. While the movie was initially planned for June 25th, 2021, the new release date of September 17th reveals that it has been delayed for three months.
This is not the first instance of Venom’s release delay, as once the movie was ready to release on October 29th, 2020, but the release got delayed for many months. Now the movie has been delayed for a little less than a year all in all, which is crazy. While many movies have had to face delays in their schedule because of COVID-19, it seems there are other troubles at play with the sequel to Tom Hardy’s Venom.
Andy Serkis has taken the directorial helm over from Ruben Fleischer, who will be projecting a new view of the movie. Tom Hardy is set to come back as Venom, while Woody Harrelson will be filling in the role of the infamous Carnage, a Marvel villain that has been compared with the likes of DC’s Joker.
The movie will still have considerable competition to deal with, as it will be releasing at the same time as Death Of The Nile as well as Boss Baby: Family Business. Hopefully this was the last of the delays that we’ve seen, but judging by the fact that there’s no real trailer for Venom 2, that might not be the case.
