The makers also dropped a new poster to announce the new release date.
The sequel to the 2018 anti-hero film saw Hardy in the role of journalist Eddie Brock, who unites with an alien symbiote to form Venom.
It stars Hardy in the titular role, with Harrelson as the antagonist Cletus Kasady aka Carnage, who made a last-minute cameo in ‘Venom’.
Actor-director Andy Serkis is directing the follow-up to the sleeper hit, which earned more than USD 856 million globally.
This announcement comes after the success of Marvel’s ‘Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings‘. The superhero film made a splash at the box office with a weekend collection of USD 71 million and an international collection of an estimated 150 million.
