The original release was in October last year
The film was originally going to hit screens in October 2020. Later, it was delayed to June 25 this year, which would have clashed with Vin Diesel's Fast & Furious 9. To avoid it, Venom was moved to September 17. Now, Sony Pictures has announced the new schedule: "#Venom vs. #Carnage. The face-off begins exclusively in theaters October 15. #Venom: Let There Be Carnage."
