What That ‘Venom 2’ Post-Credit Scene Means For Tom Holland’s Spider-Man
The highly anticipated, Sony-driven, sequel has finally hit theaters with fantastic reactions, but what’s captured the headlines is one very vital moment; so Let’s talk about what that Venom 2 post-credit scene means for Tom Holland’s Spider-Man.
The Tom Hardy starring Venom series has become a surprise hit for comic book film fans, with the symbiote antihero engrossing a new generation of fans to the humorous and monstrous alien hero.
Hardy’s Eddie Brock has been the first of Sony’s recently devised Spider-Man universe of films; with the studio retaining the rights to several Spider-Man villains and characters, along with the web-slinger himself.
It was the final scene shown to fans who have seen the film that presented an interesting development in this ongoing Sony-led Marvel universe; so let’s discuss what exactly that Venom 2 post-credit scene means for Tom Hollands Spider-Man.
We will be talking about the post-credits scene of Venom: Let There Be Carnage, So this is your SPOILER ALERT!
It has been reported by many outlets and viewers of the film that the scene shows Tom Hardy’s Eddie Brock and his Venom Symbiote partner, both appearing in a hotel room where they see an image of Tom Hollands Spider-Man on the television.
There is a lot to unpack about the scene itself, Venom seeming to recognize the MCU Peter Parker, and what this entire scene means for the upcoming Spider-Man: No Way Home; but it also begs the question, what does this mean about Sony’s future with the Spider-Man property.
As many of us know, Spider-Man’s appearance within the MCU occurred because of an unprecedented agreement between Sony and Disney in which the character was, in a way, loaned to Disney for use within their films.
It acted as a mutually beneficial arrangement, with Disney able to introduce one of MArvels most vital and beloved characters back into the Marvel family, and it allowed Sony to receive the benefit of the Marvel excellence in their films.
This agreement, however, always came with the understanding that Sony would, at some point, get the character back into the Sonyverse; to use within their own cinematic universe based around the MCU’s choices with the character.
With this Venom 2 post-credit scene, it appears that time is nearly upon us.
With rumors of many previous Spider-Man film villains appearing in Spider-Man: No Way Home, it wouldn’t be a stretch to imagine Venom now making his way into the film; culminating into a branch reality in which Tom Hollands Peter Parker exists within Sonys evergrowing cast of Marvel characters
The big question is; will it work? That being something that can only be seen with time.
Tom Hollands Spider-Man is so engrained within the MCU, it is difficult to imagine that character, not within the universe, but it isn’t an impossibility; considering the popularity and adoration the two Venom films have received, perhaps Holland’s Parker can thrive in his own Marvel Universe.
What do you think? Do you want Venom to show up in Spider-Man: No Way Home? Are you excited for a Tom Holland Spider-Man Universe at Sony? Let us know below!
