The Spider-Man: No Way Home writers discussed Tom Hardy’s Venom leaving some symbiote in the MCU.
In the mid-credits scene for Spider-Man: No Way Home, we see Eddie Brock AKA Venom (Tom Hardy) in a bar asking a bartender about some of the recent history in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). At the end of Venom: Let There Be Carnage, he was transported from his reality into the MCU from the Multiversal chaos that was unleashed given the botched spell from Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch). Venom was then transported back to his reality, but he ended up leaving behind some of his symbiote.
With some Venom symbiote left behind, some have wondered how this will factor into a fourth Spider-Man film with Tom Holland. Well, Erik Sommers and Chris McKenna, the writers of No Way Home, discussed some of the opportunities that may arise from Tom Hardy’s Venom leaving behind the symbiote:
Erik Sommers: It leaves the door open for possibilities. As opposed to just seeing him go back and not seeing any symbiote. So it just allows for some exciting possibilities in the future.
Chris McKenna: I have no idea. That is above our pay grade. We are part of a bigger, larger universe that we are not the gods of, we’re just mortals in.
Although the possibilities arising from Tom Hardy’s Venom leaving behind some symbiote in the MCU are interesting to think about, Erik Sommers and Chris McKenna have no idea what the broader plans are in place for Sony’s Spider-Man Universe. Here’s hoping that this will eventually lead into Tom Holland’s Peter Parker dealing with his own issues with the symbiote, and potentially we will see another Multiverse crossover with Tom Hardy’s Venom in the future.
Here is the synopsis for Spider-Man: No Way Home:
For the first time in the cinematic history of Spider-Man, our friendly neighborhood hero’s identity is revealed, bringing his Super Hero responsibilities into conflict with his normal life and putting those he cares about most at risk. When he enlists Doctor Strange’s help to restore his secret, the spell tears a hole in their world, releasing the most powerful villains who’ve ever fought a Spider-Man in any universe. Now, Peter will have to overcome his greatest challenge yet, which will not only forever alter his own future but the future of the Multiverse.
