So now that Warner Bros. has moved The Batman off its June 25th 2021 release date, what do you think happened next? Suddenly, Sony has swooped in and decided that’d be a perfect place to move their upcoming Venom sequel, which now has an official title to along with its delayed release date.
According to Deadline, Sony has moved the sequel, newly-titled Venom: Let There Be Carnage, off its October 2020 date and to June 25th 2021. Taa-daa!! So you lose one superhero movie that weekend, and get another one, albeit with more head-chomping goodness courtesy of Tom Hardy.
The title makes it absurdly clear that Woody Harrelson’s villain, Cletus Kasady aka Carnage, will be the sequel’s chief baddie. I mean, they’re practically hitting us over the head with it. Why they didn’t just go with “Maximum Carnage” or something is beyond me.
One thing to note: the June date is ridiculously close to the July 16th 2021 release for Spider-Man 3. Don’t be surprised if Sony decides to move that to later in the year.
