As speculation has surfaced in recent days, it has just been confirmed that Venom: Let There Be Carnage has been delayed. Instead of September 24, the film is now scheduled to premiere on October 15.

Now, just when we thought we were close to seeing Tom’s Symbiont once again, Sony Pictures has made this decision, which concerns fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

With Venom 2’s delay, Spider-Man fans have started to get worried. The film is scheduled to open this December, a couple of days after Venom: Let There Be Carnage‘s new October release date. So can Tom Holland’s film be the next rescheduling victim?

Bringing a live-action Spiderverse for the first time, the film has all the potential to break box office records. The theories involving Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield have certainly not diminished.

Sony’s decision could drastically impact the MCU, as Spider-Man: No Way Home needs to be released before Doctor Strange: Into the Madness Multiverse. Should there be a new wave of postponements, fans can look forward to a string of date changes once again.

In the film industry, January and February are considered “dumps” within the release landscape. Movies distributed around this time are considered to be strong candidates to have a box office flop. If Sony does indeed change the date of Spider-Man 3, fans shouldn’t be surprised if the film is only released in March.

So far, Marvel seems to be managing to keep its commitment to Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, which is scheduled to open in theaters on September 2. However, if things worsen, we could see a postponement of Eternals, Spider-Man: No Way Home, and consequently all future films.
