Venom 2 Has a Shocking Post-Credit Sequence, and Sony Wants You to Know It

Venom 2 Post-Credit Scene Confirmed by Sony as Big Shock

Here’s the weird thing about all of this: Press interviews for Venom: Let There Be Carnage have been happening all week and a screening attended by io9 did not have a post-credits scene. In fact, journalists are still under embargo to not share their thoughts on the film at all, either in review or via social media. So somehow this particular sentiment—from an actor—not only gets around any studio embargoes but does the one thing (most) users on social media are trying not to do: discuss spoilers.

And yet, this obviously builds a ton of hype and interest for the film. Fans are already excited to see the return of Tom Hardy’s Venom and the full-scale debut of Woody Harrelson’s Carnage, a long-awaited fan-favorite from Marvel Comics. Now though, there’s this added layer. What exactly happens in the end credit scene? If you look at the replies to that tweet a few people claim to know, and there are many other tweets and Reddit threads about it. If you’re curious, you can read on past our spoiler warning, but do note this is an unconfirmed rumor. io9 has reached out to Sony to see if there’s any additional comment.

According to the rumors, the scene sees Eddie Brock and Venom watching TV. On that TV is none other than…Tom Holland as Spider-Man, confirming that Venom exists in the same universe as the Marvel/Sony Spider-Man films and, by extension, the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This isn’t exactly the most surprising post-credit scene since director Andy Serkis has acknowledged fan anticipation for a showdown. But, if true, this could be the start of some very exciting things.

Insomniac’s Next Spider-Man Game Will Bring Venom to the Party

Playstation Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 to Feature Kraven, Venom

In a press release that dropped following the teaser’s debut, Sony announced that Candyman’s Tony Todd is set to voice Spider-Man 2‘s Venom alongside Yuri Lowenthal and Nadji Jeter, who will reprise their respective roles as Peter and Miles. Spider-Man: Miles creative director Bryan Intihar and game director Ryan Smith both returned to oversee the new game.

According to the press release, Spider-Man 2 will see both series develop new skills and abilities, as well as acquire a variety of new suits as part of a story that pits them against at least one of Spider-Man’s most iconic foes who’s yet to make the jump to Insomniac’s games. Though the teaser only provides but so much in terms of the game’s story, both Peter and Miles’ being featured together as Spider-Man strongly implies that you’ll be able (or perhaps have to) play as both characters in order to fully complete the game. Whether this means that Miles and Peter will have alternate paths meant to enhance the game replayability or whether Spider-Man 2 will incorporate some interesting two-player game mechanics remains to be seen.

Currently, there is no scheduled release date for Spider-Man 2, but more information about the game is sure to be released in the coming months.

After Spider-Man, Wolverine Will Star in Insomniac’s Next Big Marvel Game

Marvel Wolverine Game Announced for PS5

Scant as the teaser is in the way of narrative details, it immediately gives you a sense of what Wolverine’s finalizes aesthetics will look like, and a taste of what the game’s action might feel like. Given how Insomniac’s Spider-Man games have mined their titular heroes’ rogues galleries and lore fairly deeply, it’s likely that Wolverine will feature a number of X-Men characters with particularly close ties to Wolverine and delve into plots inspired by the comics focused on him. What’s going to be particularly fascinating to learn more about is what sort of world Insomniac creates for Wolverine to exist in, and whether the studio will develop an innovative way for him to move about it the way it did for Peter Parker and Miles Morales.

There’s currently no projected release date for the new Wolverine game, but we’re sure to hear more details about it in the coming months.
