If Venom: Let There Be Carnage’s increased runtime is any indicator, anyone expecting excessive amounts of Symbiote-covered mayhem will need to modify their expectations.
Recently, Venom: Let There Be Carnage’s U.S. release date was moved forward due to a series of unforeseen delays, but it turns out it won’t take that long to get to theatres.
Venom 2, directed by Andy Serkis, has been announced ahead of Tom Hardy’s return as Eddie Brock. That’s a lot shorter than the previous movie, which lasted an hour and 52 minutes, and Spider-Man: No Way Home, which is rumoured to be two and a half hours long.
After all, Sony recently rebranded its Marvel character movies that aren’t part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe under Spider-Man. However, it has also worked with Marvel Studios on Spider-Man projects, including Venom and Morbius.
It was announced last month that Sony had rebranded its comic-book movies under the ‘Sony Pictures’ Universe of Marvel Characters’ umbrella.
Let There Be Carnage won’t feature a crossover between Spider-Man and Venom, although there’s still the chance of a third Venom film.
Tom Hardy recently revealed that he was already “thinking about” a third film in the franchise. My friend suggested writing it at the same time.
There will be no third unless the second is a hit, but the studio was ecstatic with number two,” she said. It’s another sign that Venom: Let There Be Carnage is finally coming to theatres. Let There Be Carnage, originally scheduled for release in October 2020, has been delayed numerous times due to the continuing coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.
Many dates have been moved around in the fall of 2021 and even temporarily into 2022 before settling on the current date of October 1, 2021. Venom: Let There Be Carnage releases in theatres on October 15 in the United Kingdom and October 1 in the United States.
