While little is currently known about the nature of this delay, it likely has something to do with the COVID-19 pandemic. During the past year, fans have seen numerous other films push their release dates back in response to the pandemic.
According to a tweet from Aaron Couch of The Hollywood Reporter, Venom: Let There Be Carnage, the sequel to 2018’s symbiote smackdown, has been delayed to September 17, 2021. The film was originally set to release on June 25, 2021.
More significantly, however, back in September of last year, Sony Pictures Entertainment Chairman Tony Vinciquerra actually commented that the company wouldn’t be releasing any of their larger blockbuster films until the pandemic was over, making a June release date implausible.
