Venom is set to sink its razor-sharp teeth into the cinemas all around the world this week.
Although Sony Pictures’ upcoming superhero movie isn’t connected to the Marvel Cinematic Universe – at least not yet – “Venom” will still toss in a double dose of goodness. That’s right movie geeks, there are 2 post credits scenes so stay in your seats once the film ends.
(There are spoilers ahead, so read at your own risk.)
First up is a mid-credits scene that teases on what audiences can expect for “Venom 2”. It’s feature another supervillain played by Woody Harrelson. Tom Hardy’s Eddie Brock, who is still a journalist, is seen at the famous San Quentin prison to interview serial killer Cletus Kasady, who becomes the iconic Carnage.
The red-haired wig baddie asks Brock if he “wants to hear the carnage,” referring to his murders. As their conversation is taking place, a piece of the Venom symbiote sneaks up towards the villain. Is clear from the name-drop who Kasady’s alter ego is going to be.
The next post-credits scene is not “Venom”-related, but still will be of interest to Marvel fans. It focuses on the animated “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse”, which will be debuting on the big screen this coming December. Movie-goers will get a look at more Spidey related characters including Spider-Gwen and Spider-Man Noir.
