In Venom-Let there be Carnage! A year after the events of the first film, Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy) is still struggling to adjust to life with the symbiote Venom.

What may Venom: Let There Be Carnage’s post-credits sequence look like?
The post-credits sequence in Venom: Let There Be Carnage, according to online reports, shows Eddie Brock and Venom enjoying TV at a beach home after defeating Carnage. To everyone’s surprise, Tom Holland’s Spider-Man appeared on TV, in a recycled scene from Spider-Man: No Way Home — it’s worth mentioning that Tom Holland shot a sequence for Venom’s first film, but Disney ordered Sony to remove it.
We don’t know if this Venom 2 post-credits sequence is real, but if it is, it proves that Venom exists in Sony’s Marvel Universe alongside Spider-Man-derived movies, just as it does in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. More excitingly, this would be an apparent preparation for an upcoming crossover (and showdown) between Tom Hardy’s Venom and Tom Holland’s Spider-Man, which Andy Serkis, the director of Venom: Let there be Carnage, has just nominated.
What is the link between Sony’s Marvel Universe and Spider-Man in the MCU?
Venom (2018), the first film in Sony’s Marvel Universe, will be followed by Venom: Let There Be Carnage. Morbius, starring Jared Leto, is set to be released in 2022, while Kraven the Huntsman, starring Aaron Taylor-Johnson, is set to be released in 2023. In the Marvel comics, all of them are iconic Spider-Man enemies. Although Venom has so far appeared on his own, there have been numerous clues and references to his relationship with Spider-Man from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Another significant link was the appearance of Vulture (Michael Keaton), the villain of Spider-Man: Back to Home, in the Morbius trailer. All of this takes place at a pivotal point in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, as Spider-Man: No Way Home delves into Marvel’s cosmos. Venom, Morbius, and Kraven are unlikely to appear in the MCU, although Spider-Man 3 may establish the narrative framework for Venom to be a part of the same world as Spider-Man.
Venom: Let There Be Carnage hits theaters on October first, followed by Spider-Man: No Way Home on December 17th.
