Put the carnage on hold.
Sony Pictures this week said the much-delayed (and super-hyped) Venom: Let There Be Carnage will lose another release date, as reported by Variety. The sequel to the 2018 box office smash Venom is now expected to land in theaters Oct. 15–the release date of Halloween Kills–instead of the previous debut date of Sept. 24.
But, keep in mind that this Marvel Comics-based movie has already been bumped back several times due to the pandemic, so mark that date in pencil on your calendar. Movie theaters–along with every other aspect of our lives–are still feeling the impact of COVID-19, and moviegoers are understandably hesitant to visit their local multiplexes.
Venom: Let There Be Carnage–directed by Andy Serkis from a screenplay by Kelly Marcel–finds journalist Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy) struggling to adjust to life as the host of the alien symbiote Venom.
As part of this effort, Brock interviews jailed serial killer Cletus Kasady (Woody Harrelson), who lashes out and bites Brock’s hand. What Kasady tastes, as he puts it, is something other than blood. This exchange leaves Kasady as the host of another symbiote, Carnage, and the terror really kicks in.
The Marvel Comics character of Venom was introduced as a living alien costume in The Amazing Spider–Man No. 252 back in 1984, and had its first full appearance in issue No. 300 (1988) of that comic book.
