What the Post Credits Scene of Venom Meant
THIS POST MIGHT CONTAIN SPOILERS!
Well, it seems like Sony could not keep that many surprises when it came to Venom. And it’s obvious that a large majority of us has been following the Venom updates vividly. Now that you are aware with all rumors that circulated the film, it’s time to take a step beyond. And reveal some even greater secrets. For those who have watched Venom, the post-credits scene will not really do anything. But for those who are still unaware of it, some great thrill and excitement is on the way.
Venom has two post-credits scene. The first prepares us a for a sequel and a recognizable villain. But the other one has probably nothing to do with this film at all. Rather, it serves as a teaser for the upcoming animated feature film Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.
An Explanation For The Post-Credits Scene
For the past few years, the mid and post-credits scene has gained immense importance. Especially, when it come to superhero movies. Although, Marvel was initially most popular for this, it’s now common to almost every major movie studio. And that’s mainly because when these credits roll, they hint towards future films. Probably that is what makes this post-credits scene fun and exciting since they give us something to devour until the next great film comes out. So, isn’t that basically what happened with Venom?
The Mid-Credits Scene
The mid-credits scene is not just a teaser for the sequel, but also an epilogue for Venom itself. As Brock takes his motorcycle trip to San Quentin Prison to interview a mystery convict, the prison guards warn him. And when the mystery convict is revealed to the world, it is none other than Cletus Kasady. Kasady is played by Woody Harrelson. And for Marvel Comic book fans, it is known that Kasady is the villain who goes by the name of Carnage. Before the screen fades back to black, Harrelson looks directly into the camera to share that there is going to be a carnage. That makes it pretty obvious that Venom is going to have a sequel. And now we know who the villain will be in the next one.
The Post-Credits Scene
The post-credits scene that takes the screens during the end comes with a comic book–style title card. And it reads, ‘Meanwhile in another universe…’
This scene is animated and revolves around the young boy that comic book fans will have no trouble recognizing. It is Miles Morales-the Spider Man from the alternate Marvel universe. But he soon made his way into the main universe. This post-credits scene hints towards the upcoming animated feature film Spider-Man: Into The Spider Verse. The movie is all set to hit theaters on December 14th this year.
Here, you can see Miles Morales getting chased around the city by a villain. Accidentally, he would knock over an older Peter Parker before getting chased again. The bright tone and humor you can see in this scene matches directly with what we are expecting in the upcoming animated movie. This post-credits scene has little or nothing to do with Venom after all. But nonetheless, it was exciting to watch and made sitting through the credits worth something.
