The news came less than an hour after Disney and Marvel Studios announced that their latest film, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, exceeded expectations at the box office and brought in $90M domestically during the four-day holiday weekend. Clearly, Sony thinks that the Tom Hardy-led film can put up similar or even better numbers.
Due to the rise of the delta variant, in August, the studio had pushed the film from September 24 to October 15. The first Venom film grossed over $800M worldwide after being released in October 2018.
Along with Hardy, Venom: Let There Be Carnage will star Woody Harrelson as Cletus Kasady (AKA Carnage), Michelle Williams as Anne Weying, and Naomie Harris as Frances Barrison (AKA Shriek). Andy Serkis served as the film’s director.
