Scheduled to premiere in theaters this September, Tom Hardy will be back to reprise the role of Brock in the sequel to 2018’s Venom set in the Spider-Man Universe but will the sequel head to Netflix? It should do but it’ll depend on where you live.
Venom, a film based on Spider-Man Universe's comic book villain, stars Avi Arad and Kelly Marcel, as well as Tom Hardy.
Although the movie had been originally scheduled to be released in October 2020, delays caused by multiple issues have meant that it will now release in theaters in September 2021.
For those in the United States, you sadly won’t be getting Venom 2. Venom 2 will not be coming soon, at least for now.
Netflix was able to sign an output agreement with Sony Pictures, but this only applies for theatrical releases in 2022. Instead, releases in 2021 will first head to Lionsgate’s Starz platform first.
There’s potential Venom: Let There Be Carnage could be pushed back to 2022 which would mean that the movie does get to come to Netflix in the first window (full list of what’s expected from Sony Pictures to Netflix US here) but for the moment, that won’t be the case.
Further down the line Venom could come to Netflix as part of Netflix’s ability to get access to previous library titles but whether Venom 2 will be included isn’t known.
Venom 3 should come to Netflix US much quicker given the new deal and that’s reportedly happening with Hardy confirmed to be returning for a third movie.
This is the easy answer.
We have not seen any Sony Pictures deals with countries other than the United States, but we do know that the majority of Sony movies are available on Netflix outside the US.
The first Venom was released in 2018 and is available on Netflix Canada and Australia. It also had a brief stint on Netflix UK from August 2020 to February 2021.
Assuming that’s still the case with 2021 releases, we should see those three Netflix regions mentioned get Venom: Let There Be Carnage in 2023 at the earliest.
That’s all we have for now (sorry it’s a lot of guesswork based on previous title releases) but we’ll keep you posted on if and when Venom 2 comes to Netflix as and when we get it.
