Venom 2 has an official title as Sony Pictures announces the film will be titled Venom: Let There Be Carnage.
They’ve also given Spider-Man spinoff film a brand new release date pushing it into the summer of 2021 on June 25th, the vacated date for The Batman which jumped to Oct 1st, 2021.
Andy Serkis is taking over directing duties from Ruben Fleischer with Tom Hardy returning as Eddie Brock and Michelle Williams back as Anne Weying.
Woody Harrelson plays killer turned super-villain Celtus Kasady aka Carnage with Naomie Harris playing Shriek.
Producer Matt Tolmach had suggested they would be open to an R-rating but the June release might stick to a PG-13 as the last installment earned an impressive $856 million at the worldwide box office.
There is an expectation that post-production and visual effects likely couldn’t be completed by October due to the pandemic. It’s also unknown if they planned on doing reshoots before locking down the final cut.
