Sony has delayed Venom 2 once again. The Spider-Man anti-hero won’t be released anytime sooner. At least not until September this year.
The Tom Hardy film was initially supposed to arrive in October 2020. And now Sony has pushed Venom 2 even further, for September, mainly due to COVID-19.
It’s hard for the fans, but that’s the scenario at the moment amid a growing pandemic.
‘Venom 2’: Everything you need to know
One main reason is the ongoing pandemic that has forced everything to shut down. Most of the cinema halls are closed across the globe.
Despite introducing vaccines and a rollout in many countries, the actual situation is still impossible to ignore. Safety measures are as necessary, just like the last year.
Most importantly, people are also feeling hesitant in going outside, in fear of getting infected.
Thus, there’s no other option instead of delaying Venom 2.
Now, it won’t arrive on June 25th, but on September 17th, 2021.
The second reason for postponing its release is Fast and Furious 9. Since it’s also a Sony title, two simultaneous debuts would have led to chaos at the box-office.
And definitely, Sony knows how to do business.
Speaking of Venom: Let There Be Carnage, it stars Tom Hardy, who will reprise his role of Eddie Brock. Renowned actor and filmmaker Andy Serkis is the director this time. He replaced Ruben Fleischer.
Fans are hoping for a great film with a good story and performance. The first part’s best thing was only Hardy’s charismatic portrayal of the Marvel anti-hero.
So it will be interesting to see how the next installment eventually turns out to be.
Be ready for more Marvel content
Meanwhile, there’s not just Sony with its ambitious superhero universe in the works. MCU, as always, is also working on its vast slate.
On the one hand, in its store, Sony has Venom 2, a possible Sinister Six franchise, and a future Silk TV series.
On the other hand, Marvel Studios has an endless list of hugely anticipated titles.
Speaking of ambition, then some of the new projects under the MCU are Loki, Ms. Marvel, Moon Knight, and Secret Invasion. A Wakanda-based series, Ironheart, Armor Wars, and She-Hulk are other exciting entries.
On the movie side, too, the line-up looks stellar with the likes of Eternals, Spider-Man: No Way Home, and Thor 4. Next year will also see the eventual arrival of even more potential blockbusters like Black Panther 2, Captain Marvel 2, and Blade.
