Tom Hardy returns to his battle with alien Venom in the sequel “Venom: Let There Be Carnage,” which is now playing. This time, Hardy’s character Eddie Brock, who plays host to the symbiotic creature, also faces Venom’s enemy Carnage. The first “Venom” was a commercial hit, grossing $856 million at the worldwide box office despite some not-so-great reviews. Sony Pictures quickly put into motion plans for a sequel, and now “Venom 2” is ready to be unleashed upon the world.
With such a high-profile release, many may be wondering how it may be viewed. Is “Venom 2” streaming? When is it on Digital? Will it be streaming anytime soon? These questions and more are answered below.
Is “Venom 2” Streaming?
“Venom 2” is not currently available for streaming. Its theater-only release echoes similar theatrical exclusives in the past for Sony Pictures like “Escape Room 2” and “Peter Rabbit 2.”
“Venom: Let There Be Carnage” was exclusively released in movie theaters. If we assume “Venom 2” will follow the same rollout as Sony’s other theatrical releases, it won’t be on a streaming service anytime soon.
Will “Venom 2” Be on Disney+?
No, “Venom: Let There Be Carnage” will not be available to stream on Disney+. It’s not a Marvel Cinematic Universe movie, and is produced solely by Sony Pictures, so Disney does not have the license to stream it on their service.
