If you’ve been asking when will Venom 2 come out – you’re in luck! Because the Venom 2 release date has gotten moved up by two weeks!
What caused Sony to move up the film’s debut? Fans can thank Marvel’s Shang Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings! The four-day box office totals for the movie came in at $90 million – and made over $75 million in its first 3 days alone!
Could the release date get pushed again? We hope not. But here’s what we know about the film for sure.

Venom 2 Release Date
Venom: Let There Be Carnage will now premiere two weeks earlier, on October 1, 2021. Sony believes that Shang Chi‘s success shows fans’ willingness to return to the theaters, despite Covid concerns.
Venom 2 was originally scheduled to release in October 2020, and was pushed last year until June 2021, then September, then October 15th, and now October 1st.
Sony released the first Venom film in 2018 and made $855 million worldwide. Its box office total made it the sixth highest-grossing film in the world.
Venom 2 Runtime
Another interesting news story making headlines for the film is its runtime. It’s surprisingly short. The film clocks in at just 90 minutes. To put that in perspective, the first film was eight minutes short of two hours.
One additional comparison, it’s rumored that Marvel’s upcoming Spider-Man: No Way Home is two and half hours. While we’re no stranger to long Marvel movies, 90 minutes seems really short.
Tom Hardy recently spoke to press saying that he was already thinking about another sequel. “A third won’t be greenlit until the second is successful, but the studio was really, really pleased with number two.” Hardy confirmed.
Sony still oversees the rights to several Marvel characters, including Venom, Morbius, and Kraven the Hunter. Will we eventually see a crossover for Spider-Man and Venom? There’s always a chance we’ll see it in a third film, but we won’t be seeing it in Venom 2.
