These developments all however ensured a Venom sequel would come by the pipeline, however Sony did not formally affirm any particulars within the wake of the unique’s stunning success. Now, nevertheless, they’re beginning to take the required steps to get the following installments of their Marvel-based universe by growth.
In line with Justin Kroll of Selection, Sony secured launch dates for “Marvel-Spidey spin-offs.” The primary is a “non-sequel” on July 10, 2020, whereas the second is a “sequel” slated for October 2, 2020. Take a look at his Twitter submit within the area under:
Kroll’s speculation these dates are for Venom 2 and Morbius is sound, because it traces up with Sony’s plans. The latter, which stars Jared Leto because the titular character, is aiming to begin production in February 2019. Leto even teased the start of production is true across the nook, sharing a video on social media the place he shaved off all his facial hair. Moreover, Venom producers Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach said Morbius would be their next movie out of the gate, so it is sensible for it to land in July 2020. As for Venom 2, there have not been many updates to report on that entrance, although October 2020 is an affordable window for it to premiere. After the unique dominated the autumn season, Sony can be sensible to stake declare to related territory now whereas they nonetheless can. The field workplace competitors is much less intense throughout October, which might make it simple for Venom 2 to develop into one other huge hit for the studio.
For Sony, the very fact they’re in a position to do that has to come back as a serious aid. Prior to now, they’ve tried (and failed) to spearhead a comic book guide franchise with the 900 Marvel characters they personal the rights to. After The Superb Spider-Man 2, Sony wanted to strike an unprecedented cope with Marvel Studios to revive Peter Parker’s cinematic repute. There’s nonetheless a protracted method to go earlier than Sony’s Marvel Universe turns into fully-formed, however at the least the artistic group is aware of they’re heading in the right direction and might make one thing that’ll join with audiences across the globe. If Venom 2 receives higher evaluations than its predecessor, there is not any telling how excessive it could possibly go.
