Mumbai, October 23 - Sony Pictures is expanding its Marvel Universe and announced two new untitled Marvel films for the 2023 release. While the studio already has "Kraven the Hunter" for January 2023, it has also added release dates for unannounced projects on June 23, 2023, and October 6, 2023.
While it is unclear when Sony intends to reveal what movies will fill those dates, fans have already started speculating that one of the two could be the third film in the Venom series. If the speculations are on spot, then the sequel to "Venom: Let There Be Carnage" might fill October 2023 release date as both Venom movies thus far have had October release dates.
The third "Venom" movie is a no-brainer that it is going to be made in a live-action franchise featuring characters from the Spider-Man family, after "Venom: Let There Be Carnage" is going strong at the box worldwide. However, it will come out in October 2023, remains a secret yet. The June 2023 release date again remains the secret, and again the speculations are that it could be filled with the 4th Spidy movie in the MCU (pure rumors).
Meanwhile, Sony has pushed Columbia Pictures' "A Journal for Jordan" to Dec. 25 of this year. The film was previously slated to premiere in New York and Los Angeles on Dec. 10 before getting a wide release on Dec. 22. Additionally, TriStar Pictures' The Nightingale, previously scheduled for release on Dec. 23, 2022, has now been delayed indefinitely.
On the other hand, Sony/Marvel's "Spider-Man: No Way Home" is scheduled to release on December 17, 2021, and "Morbius" is slated for January 28, 2022. After the two new Sony/Marvel movies in 2023, Marvel will now have 7 films slated to release in the year.
