Amidst a wave of setbacks in Hollywood, Sony has officially announced the full title of 2018’s Venom sequel as Venom: Let There Be Carnage along with the film’s new release date set for June 25, 2021 via a teaser on YouTube.
The teaser can be seen here:
Although originally set for release on October 2, 2020, Venom: Let There Be Carnage derives its title from the mid-credits scene at the conclusion of the original film. The scene introduces Cletus Kasady (Woody Harrelson), the villain who similar to Eddie Brock becomes bound with an extraterrestrial parasite known as Carnage.
What became a surprise breakout success upon its release in 2018, Venom starring Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock, earned a massive $856.1 million worldwide which warranted a sequel almost instantly.
The new film is directed by Andy Serkis, who is known for his motion-capture appearances as Gollum in The Lord of the Rings and Hobbit films and as Caeser in the Planet of the Apes prequel series.
