The coronavirus pandemic has caused production for TV shows and films to get shut down. In addition, the upcoming movies that are already set to arrive got delayed months from their original release date with theater chains forced to be closed. Venom 2 seemed to be holding onto its October 2020 debut, but the sequel has now been pushed to 8 months.

Per The Hollywood Reporter, Sony recently announced that Venom 2 will now be released on June 25, 2021. This adds one of the most-anticipated comic book films to the 2021 slate, which already has a lineup of big films that were delayed as well. Morbius has been moved to next year as well, and Spider-Man 3 is speculated to face a delay in production too.

The sequel also got its official title, Venom: Let There Be Carnage, which is, of course, a nod to the popular Spider-Man villain, Carnage. The mid-credits in the first film teased the character's arrival and promises the transformation once he escapes prison.

Not much is revealed about the upcoming film, but set photos and videos from Let There Be Carnage have teased Woody Harrelson's portrayal of the character, and fans can't wait to see his transformation as the red symbiote via CGI. Aside from that, Tom Hardy will reprise his role as Eddie Brock, and Andy Serkis will serve as the director.
