It’s official. ‘Venom: Let There Be Carnage’ has been delayed by 3 weeks, to October 15.

Earlier today, Variety reported that the sequel to 2018’s ‘Venom’ would be delayed, over concerns about the growing Delta variant. This was mainly spurred by the box office failure of DC’s ‘The Suicide Squad’, which made $26M on opening weekend, well below the projections of a $30M opening.

It’ll be interesting to see how the box office moves over the coming weeks, mainly ‘Free Guy’. If that film flops at the box office, expect more studios to start shifting their release calendars again.

Venom: Let There Be Carnage now releases on October 15, 2021.
