VENOM: LET THERE BE CARNAGE's Runtime Has Been Revealed, & It's One Of The Shortest CBMs Of All Time

The official runtime for Venom: Let There Be Carnage has been revealed, and Sony Pictures' upcoming sequel is clocking in at just 90 minutes, making it one of the shortest CBMs of all time...

Nowadays, it's rare to see a comic book/superhero film (or really any major studio blockbuster) come in at under 120 minutes. In fact, most of 'em clock in closer to 2 and a half hours. We have some good news for those who feel movies are just too damn long these days, however, because Venom: Let There Be Carnage is looking to buck that trend.

With tickets for Venom 2 now on sale, AMCand Fandango theater sites have listed the movie with a 90 minute runtime. This is full 22 minutes shorter than its predecessor, and makes the Sony Pictures sequel one of the shortest comic book movies of all time.

For some context, the shortest MCU releases are Thor: The Dark World and The Incredible Hulk (both 112 minutes), while Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) is the DCEU's shortest entry (108 minutes). You'd actually have to go all the way back to 2007's Fantastic Four: The Rise of the Silver Surfer to find a CBM that comes close, and even that's 92 minutes-long.

This shouldn't be taken as a reflection on the quality of the movie, of course, but it is unusual - especially for a sequel that's set to introduce several new characters while expanding on the dynamics established in the first film.

We recently found out that Venom 2's release had been pushed forward by two weeks, and will now open on October 1. The movie is rated PG-13 for "intense sequences of violence and action, some strong language, disturbing material and suggestive references."
