Venom: Let There Be Carnage is now out in theaters, and to say it ended with a game-changing post-credits scene would be an understatement. (MAJOR SPOILERS FOLLOW!) Venom 2 ends with Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy) and Venom having to go on the run, after Brock’s secret is revealed to the world during his final battle with Carnage (Woody Harrelson). While Venom hides out on a remote tropical island trying to pass the time, the post-credits scene reveals a major twist, as Venom is a sudden blip in the Marvel Multiverse suddenly brings Tom Hardy’s Venom into the same reality as Tom Holland’s Spider-Man!
Venom 2’s end credits scene simply does the stage setting for Spider-Man and Venom to (finally) co-exist in the same reality. However, Marvel fans are freaking out about all the larger implications that come with this twist in the franchise – starting with the upcoming Spider-Man: No Way Home!

To be a fly on the wall of Venom 2 theater screenings today… Actually, we think the post-credits scene will play out just like the above in most theaters…

If nothing else, Venom: Let There Be Carnage has pulled off the trick of leaping over negative criticisms to lure Marvel fans in with a major post-credits scene promise. And it’s working!
Do You Smell What Sony’s Cooking?

Sony is quickly ensuring that its “Sony Spider-Man Universe” franchise is on Marvel fans’ must-watch list. And it is ALSO working!
venom HAS to be in no way home, like i’m pretty sure he got transported into the mcu because of strange’s spell just like all the other spider-man villains pic.twitter.com/Mq8DnY9ouN

That multiverse merging effect in Venom 2’s post-credits scene was a dead ringer for what we see Doctor Strange conjure in Spider-Man: No Way Home – and also what we saw in Loki and WandaVision. The Marvel Multiverse – it’s ALL Connected!
Spider-Man vs. Venom Movie
Totally My Prediction/Opinion
Venom will not be the villian in no way home as to what I think no way home will focus on multiverse sinister six.
But venom can be used for a future spidey vs Venom movie pic.twitter.com/VP36pe3TPH

For some fans, having Tom Hardy’s Venom wedged into Spider-Man: No Way Home is too Spider-Man 3. Now an entire Spider-Man and Venom movie? That’s more like it…
Spider-Man: No Short Runtime
If the Venom 2 end credit scene is accurate then Spider-Man man no way home needs to be atleast 4hrs pic.twitter.com/tZDnRiGuOP

Seriously: A Doctor Strange crossover, Multiverse Sinister Six, visit from Venom – and an actual Peter Parker/Spider-Man story? No Way Home’s runtime is going to be crazy!
We Are We So Divided These Days?
(more spoilers) well, on the bright side, he was transported to the mcu. i guess it’s better than not being canon at all, but i’m still pissed that everything needs to be divided into separate universes now

This fan isn’t happy with retconned (or temporary) unity of franchise – he just wants one, happy, Marvel Universe.
Winter Needs to Be Coming…

As you can see, word is starting to leak about Venom showing up in Spider-Man: No Way Home, and fans can’t get that moment soon enough.
