Venom: Let There Be Carnage is definitely amongst the most awaited superhero movies of the year. This movie has one of the most interesting one-on-one fight sequences from comic books. The first film in the series wasn’t a massive success with the critics but clearly did make an impact on the fans. This was the first in a series of movies that belong to the Sony Spider-Man universe. Venom: Let There Be Carnage is definitely a success based on the performances. The duel showdown between Venom and Carnage definitely did give us something that we really expected it to be. Reviews for the movie seem to be mixed again and it’s obvious, we will definitely enjoy the movie. But more than the movie, there is a chance that we might actually get to see a lot more than we had expected. Let’s take a look at the Venom 2 post-credits scene and see its implications.

Venom Post-Credits Scene
Superhero movies have had a long relationship with post-credits scenes. These scenes give us a hint at what to expect next from the franchise. It is rather amusing that we are so used to it that we wait at the cinema halls for the post-credits scenes. The post-credits scene for Venom gave us our first look at Cletus Kasady, played by Woody Harrelson, as he confronts Tom Hardy’s Eddie Brock. This was rather important as this kept fans excited about the future of the franchise. It hyped us for the showdown between Cletus Kasady’s Carnage and Eddie Brock’s Venom.
Before we jump into the real details, let’s discuss one of the most essential post-credits scenes that we have seen in recent times. Spider-Man: Far From Home gave us the biggest cliffhanger in the post-credits. We saw Spider-Man’s true identity is revealed in the news and also Peter is blamed for the death of Mysterio. There had been no hint at what to expect from the Marvel Cinematic Universe following this until we saw the trailer for the next Spider-Man movie, Spider-Man: No Way Home. Here we get to see that Spider-Man actually uses the help of Doctor Strange to make everyone forget about his true identity. Due to some error, the Multiverse is opened and we witness some of the villains from the previous Spider-Man movies make an appearance.
Venom 2 Post-Credits Scene
Venom: Let There Be Carnage has one of the biggest events in superhero movies as its post-credits scene. This event marks equal importance for both Eddie Brock who plays Venom and Sony’s Spider-Man universe. In the post-credits scene, we discover Eddie Brock laying on a bed of a hotel room watching a series on TV. Venom says that he loves that TV show and they start to talk about having secrets. Venom says, “we all have a past, Eddie,” and Eddie asks him if “he’s hiding stuff from him.” Now, this is where things get important as Venom drops a bombshell.
Venom says, “80 billion lightyears of hive knowledge, across universes, would explode your tiny little brain.” Eddie was so confused and he asked “what does that even mean.” This is where we were going to find out about the Klyntar planet and Venom’s backstory. But as Eddie confirmed that he was ready to know, Venom said, “Well, let me give you a taste then. Just the smallest fraction of the things we symbiotes have experienced.” And right at this moment, we see the trademark glitch of the multiverse that we saw in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. A bright yellow light shines from outside, and everything changes as things phase in and out.
Eddie’s room gets altered as he ends up in a new hotel room and the news on the TV report is similar to Spider-Man: Far From home about Spider-Man’s true identity except it also shows footage of Spider-Man without his mask. This news is reported by J. K. Simmons’s J. Jonah Jameson. The scene ends with Venom licking Peter Parker’s face on the TV. This is a clear indication that Eddie Brock has been transported from his universe to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
How Did This Transportation Happen?
As to what causes this transportation remains a mystery. One can say it might have been due to Venom as he was making the mind-merge with Eddie so that he can endow some of his knowledge upon him. But it seems that this transportation was out of both of their hands. There is a chance that this was triggered due to what we got to see from the trailer of Spider-Man: No Way Home and this means that there is a chance that Venom quite possibly might appear in the movie.
One important detail to be focused upon is the fact that the Symbiote has been aware of the multiverse even though Eddie Brock wasn’t. This became clear when the Symbiote said, “80 billion light-years of hive knowledge across universes”. There is a chance that Venom might be aware of Peter Parker or Spider-Man. This could play a key role in No Way Home as the symbiote hive mind might actually possess the knowledge regarding the multiple Peter Parkers across the multiverse.
This was long expected to happen considering both Venom and Spider-Man: Far From Home are produced or co-produced by Sony. Considering the latter is the second last usage of Tom Holland’s Spider-Man by Marvel. Sony might actually be planning to form its own world and bring Tom Holland into it. It seems there are quite a lot of exciting events awaiting us as the Spider-Man: No Way Home movie will be out at the end of the year.
