The "Venom" sequel, which was scheduled to open on September 24 in the US, will now premiere on October 15.

According to Deadline, the delay comes as the coronavirus cases are skyrocketing in the US due to the delta variant.

The film will see Hardy return as journalist Eddie Brock, who unites with an alien symbiote to form Venom.

Actor-filmmaker Andy Serkis has directed the movie from a script written by Kelly Marcel.
