Yesterday Sony made an announcement that Venom: Let There Be Carnage will be released on 1 October 2021. The original release date was set for 15 October. However, after the recent success of Marvel’s Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, the date was moved.
The Thrilling Sequel to Venom
The trailer for the follow-up shows Tom Hardy returning as Venom/Eddie Brock. But this time we are introduced to a new supervillain played by the fantastic Woody Harrelson. Harrelson’s character, who is known as “Carnage”, escapes from an asylum of sorts and it seems that Eddie is the only one who can stop him.
Andy Serkis directed the Venom sequel and commented back in February that the movie would be “thrilling”.
“I really can’t say too much about it but we’re 40 days into shoot and it’s really thrilling. We’ve got the magnificent Tom Hardy at the centre of it and we see a deepening of the relationship between him and Venom,” he said.
Robert Richardson, who is the Cinematographer for the film, is known for working magic. Richardson has won three Acadamy Awards for his work, and here he explains his lack of hesitation in working on this film:
“I watched it again, then they sent me a script and I felt like, yeah, I would say yes anyway to Andy just because I would say yes to Andy, but I also think it’s a great … I think it’s unexplored yet, and it’s going to explode, and this film, I think, will help it explode, because you have a remarkable central character with Venom, but now you’ve got Woody Harrelson, who’s going to obviously make his own little entrance here, and we’ll see what else comes in with the Sony Marvel collaboration.”
Be sure to catch Venom: Let There Be Carnage to experience the thrill for yourself.
