Venom: Let There Be Carnage has now passed the first film’s gross at the domestic box office

Sony is on a roll with their Marvel films as of late. The first Venom film starring Tom Hardy was a surprise hit after grossing $213.515M domestically and $856M worldwide. Let There Be Carnage arrived in October and was recently re-released in theaters following Spider-Man: No Way Home‘s historic box office performance.

Venom 2 fared well at the box office when it first arrived amidst the ongoing pandemic, scoring the highest opening weekend at the time. Following the re-release, the Venom sequel has now topped the first film’s domestic total with $213.517M. However, Venom 2 still hasn’t made as much worldwide as its predecessor, currently sitting at $502.017M.

Tom Hardy’s Venom last appeared in Spider-Man: No Way Home:

“For the first time in the cinematic history of Spider-Man, our friendly neighborhood hero’s identity is revealed, bringing his Super Hero responsibilities into conflict with his normal life and putting those he cares about most at risk. When he enlists Doctor Strange’s help to restore his secret, the spell tears a hole in their world, releasing the most powerful villains who’ve ever fought a Spider-Man in any universe. Now, Peter will have to overcome his greatest challenge yet, which will not only forever alter his own future but the future of the Multiverse.”

Directed by Jon Watts from a script written by Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers, Marvel’s No Way Home stars Tom Holland, Zendaya, Jacob Batalon, Tony Revolori, Martin Starr, J.B. Smoove, Marisa Tomei, Jon Favreau, Benedict Wong, Benedict Cumberbatch, Willem Dafoe, Alfred Molina, and Jamie Foxx, with Andrew Garfield, Tobey Maguire, and Tom Hardy.

Spider-Man: No Way Home is now playing in theaters, while Venom: Let There Be Carnage is available on all home media formats. Stay tuned for all the latest news surrounding Sony’s plans for Venom and their other Spider-Man characters.
