There is some bad news for fans of the Marvel movie, Venom. Sony Pictures has just confirmed that the release date for Venom 2 will be delayed, and they have not yet announced a new release date. In this blog post, we will talk about what happens now with venom 2 as well as how it could affect other movies in the marvel cinematic universe.
Sony might have chosen to delay Venom: Let There Be Carnage’s release date
Sony has delayed the release of Venom 2 amidst soaring Delta variant spikes. The sequel to 2018’s blockbuster sees Tom Hardy return as Eddie Brock, the human host to a powerful alien symbiote who is attempting to rekindle his journalistic career while also acting as an integral vigilante in society.
After attempting to interview serial killer Cletus Kasady, a failed execution releases the symbiote Carnage and lets him terrorize New York City, go on a murderous rampage through San Francisco.
Hollywood hotshot Woody Harrelson has been confirmed to be returning in the sequel of action horror film Venom and will share screen space with cast members Michelle Williams, Reid Scott, and Peggy Lu. Venom: Let There Be Carnage marks the cinematic debut of Kasady’s love interest and super-powered villain Shriek, played by Oscar nominee Naomie Harris.
Though the production wrapped earlier this year and is slated to be released in October 2021, COVID-19 has pushed back the release of the sequel multiple times; most recently delaying it from September to October.
Other Major Details
A new analysis byÂ The Hollywood Reporter, (quoted from the article) “What was initially expected to be just an isolated outbreak of gastroenteritis has spread nationwide and become the largest norovirus crisis in United States history, with cases reported in at least 42 states.”
Sony has reportedly delayed the release date for its superhero film Venom. Sony officials, at the time of writing, have given no confirmation that we won’t see the movie in October.
Even as vaccines have gone out and some films, including F9: The Fast Saga and Free Guy, have seen box office success, recent Delta variant spikes are raising alarms for potential theatergoers.
Much anticipation surrounded James Gunn’s Suicide Squad, and the film received critical acclaim following release, but it performed below expectations at the box office, only grossing $118 million against its $185 million budget. In its second weekend, it fell 71% to a fourth-place tally of just $7.5 million, with a domestic total now at approximately $155 million while international totals are yet uncounted.
With Venom 2 taking priority over Morbius and with the original film being shelved, it is understandable that Sony Pictures might want as much box office success for Venom: Let There Be Carnage as possible to keep their Marvel Universe financially sound.
