Venom: Let There Be Carnage Release Date Moved Forward

Rumours of a Venom sequel release date change have been around for some time now. This is because Hollywood was looking at the Labor Day weekened to see if it can boost the confidence of American audiences returning to theaters after the rise in covid-19 cases. These rumors turned out to be true, but not in the manner many expected.


Sony has changed the release date of Venom: Let There Be Carnage from October 15, which was its original release date. The studio is not delaying Venom: Let There Be Carnage, contrary to previous rumors. This is a common theme for Fall 2021, as audience hesitancy comes into the season, and rising covid-19 case in key states. Hollywood has had to deal with more disruption. Let There Be Carnage decided instead to release the Carnage two weeks earlier than expected and will now be available on October 1.

Deadline reports that rumors had suggested that Sony might consider a 2021 exit to allow Andy Serkis to follow up on the 2018 surprise hit. After Shang-Chi broke all estimates to bring in $90 million over Labor Day weekendbreaking any pandemic records in the process, the studio believes that Marvel fans will be willing to accept masks and vaccine mandates in order to get back to the theaters when Fall begins. Woody Harrelson and Tom Hardy will star as Eddie Brock/Venom/Carnage. The original Venom had a mixed reception and a second-best October debut record of $80.2 million. (It actually held that record for one year until the Jokers 2019 debut). It will be interesting to see how Let There Be Carnage does. There is still a pandemic, despite renewed confidence. However, Sonys are at least certain that Marvel heroes will continue where their fans go.
