Fans were utterly upset after Sony Pictures announced that the scheduled release date for the highly anticipated sequel of Venom would be pushed back. Thanks to Tom Hardy, the fans have something to look out for until the movie arrives. The 42-year-old star recently took Instagram to reveal the teaser title and the logo for the upcoming sequel, and fans are now excited, already.
As soon as the studio revealed that the title for the sequel would be entitled as Venom 2: Let There Be Carnage, the British star unveiled the spooky logo featuring a blood-red transition in the logo—resembling the blood brought by Woody Harrelson’s serial-killer turned symbiote.

In recent weeks, there have been talks about the possible release of Venom 2’s trailer, but it looks like this won’t be happening anytime soon due to the rescheduling of the release date. Venom 2: Let There Be Carnage will feature another deadly and ruthless Marvel supervillain, Cletus Kasady / Carnage—a serial killer later turned into alien symbiote, Carnage.
Woody Harrelson’s Carnage was teased in the mid-credits of 2018’s Venom when Eddie Brock / Venom (Tom Hardy) pays a visit to Cletus Kasady in prison. Kasady then promises Brock that there will be Carnage once he escapes the prison. While Tom Hardy and Woody Harrelson will reprise their role from the previous films, it was reported that director Ruben Fleischer wouldn’t return for the movie as he had his commitments for 2019’s Zombieland: Double Tap.
Mowgli’s director Andy Serkis in August 2019, confirmed that he would direct the sequel from a screenplay by Kelly Marcel. Michelle Williams and Reid Scott will reprise their roles from previous films, whereas Naomi Harris would portray Kasady’s love-interest and supervillainess, Shriek.
The movie has been pushed back to seven months from the original release date and will hit theaters on June 25, 2021.
