Venom producer says “no timetable” for the sequel as yet

Sony kicked off its Universe of Marvel Characters last year with the release of Venom, the Tom Hardy-headlined film defying critics and putting the shared Spider-Man-themed universe on a firm footing with a whopping worldwide box office haul $855 million.

With those kinds of numbers, it came as little surprise when Sony announced an October 2nd 2020 release for an ‘Untitled Marvel Sequel’, which – seeing as Venom is the only Marvel movie available to Sony for a sequel at present – seemed to indicate that the symbiote would be back on the big screen next year.

Well, it seems that this date isn’t set in stone, as producer Amy Pascal has now revealed to Comic Book that while Venom 2 is “in the works”, there is currently “no timetable” for its production or release.

Zachary Levi Wants to Play Nathan Drake in The Uncharted Movie If Tom Holland Doesn't Work Out

What would you all think about Zachary Levi playing Nathan Drake in the Uncharted movie? The actor recently shared that he would love to play the adventurous character. As you know, Tom Holland is currently attached to play a young version of the character, but Levi would gladly step into the role if things didn’t end up working out with Holland.

Sony Says They’re In No Rush To Make Venom 2

Venom overcame an (extremely unfair) critical mauling to become an $856 million smash, with audiences worldwide taking to the bromance between Tom Hardy and a slimy alien goo monster. It was a superhero movie with a distinct personality, anchored by a very fun dual performance from Hardy and a witty script. But with the film proving to be a hit and ending with a teaser for a sequel starring Woody Harrelson’s Carnage, you’d expect a follow-up to be fast-tracked. So far though, we’ve heard nothing about Venom 2.

We’ve had word that Sony are targeting an October 2nd, 2020 release date for the project, which should mean that it’s some way through pre-production and would go before the cameras later this year. But now, in a recent interview, studio chief Amy Pascal has explained that the film is “in the works” but that there’s “no timetable.
