Venom: Let There Be Carnage or Venom 2 has already started showing in US theaters and people are already excited about the post-credits scene. There is only one post-credits scene in this film, and that determines Venom’s future in the Marvel universe. As we know, until now Marvel comics characters are held by two major studios, namely Sony Pictures and Disney.
Sony Pictures owns SPUMC or Sony Pictures Universe of Marvel Characters; while Disney through Marvel Studios has the MCU aka the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Quoted from Screenrant, the Venom: Let There Be Carnage post-credit scene could be a hint about Eddie Brock and Venom’s future in the MCU. In this scene, a malfunction effect is shown that is similar to the visuals presented in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.
The effect of this malfunction may indicate a shift in the universe. Plus, the scene shows a television news scene showing the character of J. Jonah Jameson (played by J.K. Simmons) reading the news about Peter Parker’s identity as Spider-Man. Tom Holland’s version of Spider-Man also appeared in the news without a mask.
Because so far the story of Spider-Man is still in the MCU, this post-credits scene is also said to be a big code for Venom’s entry into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Although it has been previously stated by Sony and Disney that Spider-Man: No Way Home will be the last Spider-Man film in the MCU, this scene seems to hint that something else will be presented by the two major studios that hold the copyright for Marvel characters. The comics.
There has been speculation that the agreement between Disney and Sony Pictures in the final Spider-Man film project in the MCU did involve Venom. However, until now Sony Pictures and Disney have not spoken about the collaboration.
What is certain is that in the next Marvel Cinematic Universe and SPUMC films, the multiverse concept will definitely be expanded and explored further. Previously, the multiverse had been explained through the Loki series and was further emphasized in the Spider-Man: No Way Home trailer. The second Doctor Strange film will also focus on the multiverse, so the possibility of collaboration between the two studios in the future is quite large.
