Venom 2 doesn’t need to let there be carnage when the whole movie industry is already in disarray due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. With film productions temporarily shut down all around the world, Sony Pictures was also forced to push back the release date of its high-profile Venom sequel despite the film wrapping production. Like all big comic book films, Venom: Let There Be Carnage would have to go through an extensive post-production process that involves reshoots. But as the pandemic wears on, Venom 2 producer Dan Wilson is unsure of when those reshoots could reasonably be finished.

Yesterday brought the disappointing news that Venom 2 was being pushed back eight months from a theatrical release in October this year to a mid-summer release in 2021. But there was also some good news along with it as the title for the sequel was revealed to be Venom: Let There Be Carnage. Just in case you doubted that this over-the-top, on-the-nose title wasn’t real, an official Venom 2 title teaser has been released by Sony Pictures confirming that there will indeed be Carnage next summer.

We all knew the Venom sequel was going to feature the villain Carnage. After all, the red-skinned symbiote and his partner-in-murder Cletus Kasady are the Marvel anti-hero’s most well-known villain. And the first film’s hilariously ill-conceived credits sequence featured a cameo appearance from Woody Harrelson, complete with a red wig seemingly borrowed from Party City, as an imprisoned Kasady. He even promises that “there’s going to be carnage” in a line of dialogue written by humans and approved by a massive company.
But now, the sequel’s title is doubling down on this fact. Venom 2 is no more. Say hello to Venom: Let There Be Carnage, a movie title also written by humans and approved by a massive company. Anyway, the title reveal comes coupled with the news that the film has been delayed from late 2020 to mid-2021 because of, you guessed it, the coronavirus pandemic.

When Venom came to a close, Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy) came face-to-face with Cletus Kasady (Woody Harrelson) and all of his curly red-haired glory. The vicious criminal gave us the oh-so-very subtle tease of his future as the super villain Carnage in this comic book universe (which may or may not be part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe?) with the line, “When I get out of here, and I will, there’s gonna be carnage.” Now it seems we have confirmation of the character’s escape in the first Venom 2 set photo, as revealed by Venom star Tom Hardy himself.

Now we know who will be playing the character (probably): Naomie Harris. Harris is in talks to join the film opposite Harrelson, Tom Hardy, and Michelle Williams, with Andy Serkis directing.

Venom may have been flogged by critics to the tune of 29% on Rotten Tomatoes, but it landed perfectly fine with audiences, landing a score of 80% from users on the review aggregation site and raking in over $856 million at the worldwide box office. As expected, Sony Pictures is moving forward with a sequel, and if the original film’s director Ruben Fleischer is to be believed, they’re on their way to a crossover with Venom meeting Spider-Man from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

You can’t wreak carnage without a little Shriek. Quite literally in the case of the Venom sequel, which has just added a second villain to join Woody Harrelson‘s bewigged Carnage. The end credits of Sony’s surprise 2018 hit Venom heavily pointed to Carnage as the main Venom 2 villain, but reports have emerged that Carnage will be joined by his frequent comic book partner in crime (and in love), Shriek.
