Venom: Let there be Carnage may be delayed once more, and it will not arrive until 2022
According to many reports, the release of Venom 2: Let There Be Carnage might be delayed until January 21, 2022.
Multiple inside sources have told Variety that the long-awaited and highly anticipated Venom sequel would be scrapped altogether from the 2021 release schedule, even as studios grapple with whether or not to release films exclusively in cinemas. Despite the fact that COVID-19 is still in the early stages of development, Variety believes that this is a possibility.
Sony has not issued an official confirmation, and according to the story, the corporation will hold off until after the annual CinemaCon show before making any announcements.
The Jared Leto film Morbius is presently scheduled to premiere in January 2022, thus if Venom is delayed, the movie would likely adjust its release date to coincide with Venom’s new release date in January 2022.
If true, this will be Venom’s fourth postponement. The film was originally scheduled to release in June, but was subsequently delayed to September 17, then September 24, and most recently to October 15.
As vaccines became more widely available in the United States, production companies began distributing films solely in theaters once more, or at the very least experimenting with hybrid distributions between cinemas and digital distribution. For example, Black Widow was released in both cinemas and Disney Premiere Access, and it received positive reviews.
New surges with the Delta Variant, on the other hand, have the potential to negatively affect return to cinemas, as seen by the fact that some high-profile releases, such as Black Widow, have had lower than projected box office returns.
In light of this situation, some movie studios may be forced to contemplate more delays until customers are once again comfortable watching movies in cinemas, according to the Wall Street Journal.
