How Many Venom 2 Post Credit Scenes Are There?
Venom 2 has three post-credits scenes, which is a lot for a movie that’s not part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The first scene is a teaser for the next Venom movie, which will see Tom Hardy’s Eddie Brock teaming up with Woody Harrelson’s Cletus Kasady, aka Carnage. The second scene is a mid-credits scene that features Brock visiting his sick daughter in the hospital. The third and final scene is a post-credits scene that teases the arrival of Spider-Man into the Venom universe.
What Happens in the First Post Credit Scene?
In the first post-credits scene, we see Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy) return home to find his ex-wife Anne Weying (Michelle Williams) there with their young daughter. Anne tells Eddie that she’s been trying to get in touch with him, but he’s been ignoring her calls. She says she’s there to talk about their daughter, but Eddie is clearly not interested and walks away.
In the second post-credits scene, we see Eddie meeting with his lawyer. He’s looking at a document that says he has to give up custody of his daughter to Anne. He’s clearly not happy about this, but he doesn’t have much choice.
The third and final post-credits scene shows Eddie meeting with Venom again. Venom tells him that now that they’re bonded, they can never be separated. Eddie seems to accept this, and the two of them appear to be ready to work together from now on.
What Happens in the Second Post Credit Scene?
The second post credit scene for Venom 2 is a bit of a surprise. It shows Carnage, who has been defeated and captured byVenom, escaping from his cell. He is then seen killing several people before making his way to a helicopter. The final scene shows him sitting in the chopper, grinning evilly as it flies away.
How Does the First Post Credit Scene Set Up the Second?
The first post-credits scene in Venom 2 sees Venom (Tom Hardy) getting into a fight with Woody Harrelson’s Cletus Kasady, a.k.a. Carnage. The two brawl until they’re both taken down by the government, with Kasady vowing to kill everyone that Venom loves before he kills him. This sets up the second post-credits scene, in which we see a Symbiote dragon made up of Venom and Carnage attacking New York City.
What Does the Second Post Credit Scene Mean for the Future of the Venom Franchise?
In the comics, Carnage is usually portrayed as being even more dangerous and unstable than Venom, and the movie’s version of the character looks to be no different. The post-credits scene features Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy) visiting a maximum security prison, where he comes face-to-face with Cletus Kassidy (Woody Harrelson), the man who will become Carnage. Eddie is there to interview Cletus for a story, but it’s clear that there’s more to it than that.
The two talk for a bit, with Cletus revealing that he knows all about Eddie and Venom. He says that he’s been waiting for someone like Eddie to come along, and that he believes they have a lot in common. It’s clear that Cletus is trying to manipulate Eddie into freeing him so he can become Carnage, but Eddie isn’t biting. At least not yet.
The second post-credits scene is a bit more lighthearted, as it features Eddie’s ex-girlfriend Anne Weying (Michelle Williams) getting revenge on her boss after he sexually harasses her. Anne turns into Venom and goes on a rampage in the office, before finally devouring the man whole. It’s a satisfying moment for fans of the character, and it sets up Anne as a potential ally for Eddie in future films.
So what does all this mean for the future of the Venom franchise? It’s hard to say for sure, but it seems likely that we’ll be seeing more of both Venom and Carnage in future movies. Whether or not Tom Hardy will return as Eddie Brock remains to be seen, but given how popular the character is, it seems unlikely that Sony would give up on him after just two movies.
