UPDATED 8/24, 6:15 p.m. ET: Venom: Let There Be Carnage is being delayed until 2022, Vulture reports. Sources told the outlet that it’s being pushed from its most recent release date of October 15, to January 21 of next year. 

Per Vulture’s sources, Sony is waiting until after CinemaCon to make the announcement, in an attempt to project a sense of calm to movie exhibitors about the upcoming fall movie season.

And while the Delta variant could threaten the release of some pretty major movies, studio insiders tell Vulture that huge tentpoles like Dune and Top Gun are unlikely to be delayed.

The second trailer for Venom: Let There Be Carnage has arrived, showcasing more of Woody Harrelson’s serial killer-turned Marvel supervillain.

The Andy Serkis-directed sequel to 2018’s Venom sees the return of Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock and his titular alter-ego. As the trailer suggests, Brock is still struggling with playing host to Venom, while also squaring off against Harrelson’s Cletus Kasady, aka Carnage. Fans were first introduced to the character in a post-credits sequence in the previous film.

Let There Be Carnage also features Michelle Williams returning as Brock’s ex-girlfriend, and Reid Scott as her new partner. New additions to the cast also include Naomie Harris as Frances Barrison, aka Shriek, and Stephen Graham as Mulligan, a detective hoping to work with Brock. After a series of lengthy delays attributed to the COVID-19 pandemic, Let There Be Carnage hits theaters on September 24.

Just last month, screenwriter Kelly Marcel revealed to Empire Magazine that Tom Hardy has received a “story by” credit for the superhero sequel. 

“This is new for him, to get credit,” Marcel said. “ut it’s not new for him to be this involved. He’s absolutely 100 percent committed to everything that he does. He’s married to Venom. He loves this character. He’s very involved in what he thinks should happen.” The two got together and had “lengthy conversations” to figure out how Carnage and Venom would face-off, and while Hardy did not write the script, he appeared to help plan out the framework for the whole thing.

"He doesn’t get a pen and write,” Marcel added. “We spent months breaking the story together on FaceTime, riffing on ideas, seeing what worked, seeing what didn’t. Then I took everything we spoke about and holed up somewhere for three months quietly, knocking out a script.”
