‘Venom: Let There Be Carnage’ Ducks ‘F9’, Moves To September 2021

Well, we kinda knew this would happen, but we’re not getting the epic summer showdown between F9 and Venom 2 that we were hoping for. Sony Pictures, not wanting to eat the exhaust of Vin Diesel’s car fumes, have moved the antihero sequel from June 25th to September 17th.

Venom: Let There Be Carnage becomes the second of Sony’s upcoming superhero slate to be shifted, following Morbius which arrives in January 2022.  They studio also has the Marvel-produced sequel Spider-Man: No Way Home, making for a trio of Sony Spidey flicks arriving within the span of a few months.

In addition, Sony has moved another film featuring Woody Harrelson, only this one has been taken off the board.  The Man from Toronto, the action-comedy pairing Harrelson with Kevin Hart, has been removed from the schedule for now. It had been set for September 17th but with Venom now in that spot it seems Sony wants to find the perfect spot where it won’t collide with their other upcoming films.
