Venom: Let There Be Carnage premiered in October 2021. Tom Hardy’s Eddie Brock faced out against Woody Harrelson’s Carnage in a violent blockbuster. A dramatic post-credits sequence in which Venom appears to cross into the MCU. This is also where he saw his first view of Tom Holland’s Spider-Man, making this the film’s most memorable moment for most fans.
It was a monumental moment, one that spawned a slew of speculations about what it all meant. What if the Green Goblin and Doc Ock team up with Tom Hardy’s symbiote to take down the web-slinger? Venom’s inclusion in the MCU sets the stage for even more important crossovers between Marvel and Sony. What were the motivation behind the huge crossover tease wh for multiverse as a handle and current tool?
Following the credits of Venom: Let There Be Carnage, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige spoke with Collider about the significance of the post-credits scene that included a Venom cameo from the MCU.
Venom and Spider-Man’s comic overtones mixed with Tom Hardy’s “iconic” Venom portrayal. Furthermore, the franchise’s popularity helped make the surprise sequence work.
“Well, I mean you look at the obvious comic connotations between Venom and Spider-Man, and it’s inherent. So the minute Sony made the Venom movie, and it worked as well as it did, and Tom Hardy has become as iconic as he has become as Venom, then the obvious question is how do we start to merge them.”
Tom Hardy as Venom may have a cameo in the MCU. However, it’s not clear what’s going on in that scenario. Feige, on the other hand, is accurate. Spider-Man and Venom are inseparable. In the end, the two were guaranteed to contact one other at some point.
Many people are excited to watch how Tom Hardy portrays it in the film with Holland’s Spider-Man when it comes to the symbiote. Spider-Man has been confirmed to face a Venom variant at some point in the future. If only Spider-next Man’s adventure could shed some light on what’s going on, fans will have a better idea of what to expect in the coming months.
Aside from the fact that this crossover (and the supposedly improved connection between Marvel Studios and Sony) would be excellent, it would almost be preferable to pave the way for Marvel’s take on the symbiote, one that isn’t tied to another studio’s chronology.
