Ruben Fleischer, director of Sony’s Venom, recently teased that fans should wait until after the credits to leave the theater.
Ferris Bueller’s Day Off was seen as having the most iconic post-credits scenes for years before Iron Man turned the post-credits stinger into a franchise mainstay. Iron Man wasn’t the first film to do it, as three Pirates of the Caribbean films had done it by that point, but Iron Man made the post-credits stinger the pop culture icon that it is today.
If you’re one of those fans that love post-credits teases and wish other franchises would follow suit, then you may be in luck. In just a couple weeks, Sony’s Venom hits theaters and it turns out that the anti-hero origin film may feature a post-credits scene. This is what director Ruben Fleischer had to say about the subject when asked about it during an interview with Fandango.
“I think it would be a mistake of any superhero movie not to stay through the credits.”
Given that Sony is in the midst of figuring out how to set up a universe with films like Morbius, the Living Vampire and Kraven the Hunter, it makes sense to feature a tease at the end. That being said, the tease could be any number of things. It could be a Spider-Man tease, a sequel tease, a nod to something that happens earlier in the film — the opportunities are endless.
Given that a majority of Venom’s runtime remains unseen by fans, it’s hard to say what is and isn’t going to be in the film, but the obvious go-to tease to assume would be Carnage. It’s possible that he could appear in the film but nothing in the promotional material has hinted at such. Woody Harrelson is reportedly playing the character but nothing’s been confirmed yet. We’ll be sure to keep you updated on all news regarding Venom as more information becomes available.
