Directed by Andy Serkis, the sequel will see Tom Hardy reprise his role as Eddie Brock
Venom: Let There Be Carnage is changing its release date once again. But this time, the news is an exciting one, with the makers of the movie announcing an early release date.
The news was announced through the official social media handle of Venom: Let There Be Carnage. “Save the date. #Venom: Let There Be #Carnage is exclusively in movie theaters on OCTOBER 1. Experience it in 3D, premium large formats, and IMAX. Tickets on sale Wednesday,” said the official tweet.
The exciting announcement also came with a new poster for the flick. After a number of delays due to the pandemic, the sequel to Venom will now arrive on October 1 rather than October 15.
While Venom first appeared as an antagonist in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 3, the sentient alien symbiote got a standalone movie in 2018. The movie follows Eddie Brock, a journalist who comes in contact with an alien symbiote, to form the anti-hero, Venom.
While the first movie was not a favourite among fans or critics, the makers have pinned high hopes on the sequel. Venom: Let There Be Carnage is directed by Andy Serkis, who is known for his amazing performances such as Gollum in The Lord of the Rings trilogy.
While the sequel will see Tom Hardy reprise his role as Eddie Brock/Venom, the movie will also see Woody Harrelson as Cleetus Kasady, a serial killer who later becomes Carnage. Venom: Let There Be Carnage also features Michelle Williams, Naomi Harris, Ried Scott and Steven Graham among others.
