Venom 2 October Release Date Confirmed by New Let There Be Carnage Poster

We have all been concerned about Venom: Let There Be Carnage as there were reports that the sequel will once again be delayed. Luckily, fans won't have to wait much longer for the upcoming Sony film. The new poster for Venom 2 confirms that the movie will hit theaters in October.

The second Venom film was initially scheduled to premiere in October last year. However, Let There Be Carnage had been repeatedly pushed back due to COVID-19. Although the movie was expected to hit theaters in September, there were speculations that it would be delayed yet again because of SARS-CoV-2 Delta variant.

Luckily, Venom 2 will only be delayed by a month. The new poster for the sequel offers a cool look at the main characters and confirms the new release date. Check it out below.

It might just be another month but this means that Venom 2 has now been pushed back a full year from its original release date. We're really hoping that the film will not be pushed back any further. However, the most recent delay is understandable as a precaution for the Delta variant, which continues to pose a danger these days.


Venom 2 will bring back Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock, Michelle Williams as Anne Weying, and Woody Harrelson as Cletus Kasady. The sequel will also introduce Naomie Harris as Shriek, Kasady's love interest and a potential villain who could play a larger role in future movies.

Venom: Let There Be Carnage will premiere exclusively in theaters on October 15, 2021.
