‘Venom: Let There Be Carnage’ Possibly Moving To 2022

If you were hoping Venom: Let There Be Carnage‘s recent delay to October would be the end of it, well, there’s some bad news. With coronavirus concerns growing again, Sony Pictures is eyeing another move that would send the anticipated Marvel sequel to January 21st 2022. This would be the fourth time the movie was delayed.

Vulture has noted multiple sources on this one, and it honestly makes a lot of sense. When Sony first pushed Venom: Let There Be Carnage from September 24th to October 15th, it was obviously just a stop-gap measure, the same kind we saw multiple studios make throughout 2020. But a delay of only a few weeks is not going to be long enough to rebuild confidence in a return to theaters.

An official announcement could come after CinemaCon is over, as that is where Sony is showing footage of their upcoming Morbius film right now. Why is that relevant? Because the Jared Leto-led film is currently scheduled for January 28th 2022 and would have to be moved later into the year.
