Sony sets 'Venom: Let There Be Carnage' for summer 2021

If you’re a fan of brain-eating alien symbiotes, we’ve got some good news and some bad news. The good news is that the previously untitled Venom sequel is untitled no more. Get ready for Venom: Let There Be Carnage! Unfortunately, however, the film will be arriving a little bit later than originally anticipated. Although Sony Pictures had October 5 earmarked for the Marvel Comics adaptation, the sequel will now hit theaters June 25, 2021.

UPDATE: Sony has just released the title treatment for Venom: Let There Be Carnage. Check it out in the player below!

Andy Serkis takes the director’s chair for Venom: Let There Be Carnage, which promises the return of Venom stars Tom Hardy, Michelle Williams and Woody Harrelson. As teased at the conclusion of the 2018 original, the sequel will continue the transformation of Harrelson’s character, Cletus Kasady, into the ultra-violent creature known as Carnage.

Before Venom: Let There Be Carnage arrives, fans will have the opportunity to return to Sony’s corner of the Marvel multiverse with Morbius. Daniel Espinosa directs Jared Leto, who plays the title Spider-Man foe. Look for Morbius to hit theaters beginning march 19, 2021. If you haven’t seen it, click here to check out the first Morbius trailer.
