Sony’s Venom: Let There Be Carnage has pushed back its release over concerns due to the COVID-19 Delta variant. The film will now release on October 15, 2021 instead of September 24, 2021.
Deadline is also reporting that they are hearing rumblings that Sony might be considering releasing Hotel Transylvania 4 straight to streaming for the same reason.
In Venom: Let There Be Carnage, Tom Hardy returns to the big screen as the lethal protector Venom, one of MARVEL’s greatest and most complex characters.
Directed by Andy Serkis, the film also stars Michelle Williams, Naomie Harris and Woody Harrelson, in the role of the villain Cletus Kasady/Carnage.
You can watch a trailer for the film below:
The Walt Disney Company and Sony Pictures Entertainment recently announced a multi-year content licensing agreement for U.S. streaming and TV rights to Sony Pictures’ new theatrical releases across Disney Media & Entertainment Distribution’s vast portfolio of platforms including its streaming services Disney+ and Hulu. Because of this new deal, once “Venom: Let there Be Carnage” runs through its theatrical and home video release, and has completed its “Pay 1” deal with Starz, the film will eventually be available for a limited time on Disney+ and Hulu.
