Sony Pictures has once again moved Venom: Let There Be Carnage released date. The Spider-Man spinoff film which moved from late June to September 17, has now been pushed back to September 24. This means Venom 2 will hit theaters approximately three weeks after Marvel Studios’ Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, which recently moved to September 3.
The Venom sequel changing its released date will avoid clashes between the two Marvel-related films, however, chances are it will pit the movie with Denis Villeneuve’s Dune (October 1), and Daniel Craig’s final James Bond movie, No Time to Die (October 8). Both films being released only a few weeks after Venom: Let There Be Carnage may affect the film’s box-office revenue.
Directed by Andy Serkis with a screenplay from Kelly Marcel, Venom: Let There Be Carnage stars Tom Hardy as the titular antihero Venom, Woody Harrelson as Carnage, Michelle Williams as Anne Weying, Reid Scott as Dan Lewis, and Naomie Harris as Shriek. Stephen Graham (The Irishman; Snatch) and Sean Delaney (Killing Eve; Midsomer Murders) have also been cast in a pair of undisclosed roles.
