A day after Warner Bros Studios announced new release dates for its DCEU Umbrella. Sony Studios announced a delayed Venom will take over The Batman’s July 2021 spot. And superhero fans had another set of release dates to follow.
Highlights! Sony Studio announces Venom 2 replaces The Batman’s previous release date for fans
- There Wil Be Carnage
- Marvel’s Involvement in Venom
Sony has announced the delay of director Andy Serkis’ Venom sequel. The title has been set to Venom: There Will Be Carnage. Previously the movie set to release in October 2020 is now pushed to June 25, 2021.
The timing of the announcement makes Tom Hardy’s Venom a perfect replacement for Batman’s delayed release.
There Will Be Carnage
The Tom Hardy starrer got its title in place, Venom 2: Let There be Carnage. The title follows up the end credit scene of Venom where Carnage was introduced. The sequel pits Venom against Carnage, played by Woody Harrelson. Naomie Harris, “Moonlight” Oscar nominee is also a new addition as Shriek, Carnage’s love interest.
There is no further information provided by Sony Studios. Given the delay of the movie, fans won’t be getting a trailer or any glimpse into the story for months. No marketing or promotion plans or even a poster in place for the movie as of now.
Venom’s Presence in the MCU
Sony reportedly wanted to have Tom Holland’s Spider-Man’s cameo in Venom origin movie. But the Marvel-Sony deal couldn’t work out then but maybe this time fans will get to see their friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man in the sequel.
However, it’s not certain that Venom 2 will tie into the Marvel Universe or not! With Morbius set in the Sony-Marvel Universe, fans are expecting the movie to tie into a further Spider-Man timeline.
Movie critics were not kind to the 2018 tentpole starring Tom Hardy as the notorious Spider-Man villain. But the movie anyhow went on to become a worldwide smash hit with just over $850 million at the box office.
As Hardy’s Venom replaces Pattionson’s Batman with the new release date fans would certainly have some superhero drama next July.
