Since the release of Iron Man in 2008, post-credit scenes have become a virtual staple of superhero films, from every installment of the Marvel Cinematic Universe to Warner Bros.' Justice League. And it appears that Sony's Venom will be no exception.
"I think it would be a mistake of any superhero movie not to stay through the credits," director Ruben Fleischer teased Fandango.
Although it's long been speculated that Tom Holland's Peter Parker might have a cameo in a Venom post-credits scene, but it seems more likely that such a sequence would set up a sequel -- star Tom Hardy has signed on for three films -- or Sony's long hoped-for cinematic universe featuring such ancillary Spider-Man characters as Black Cat, Morbius the Living Vampire, Silver Sable and Kraven the Hunter. Commonly called the Spider-Verse or the Venom-Verse, that film slate is referred to internally by the studio as Sony’s Universe of Marvel Characters, or SUMC for short.
Swinging into theaters on Oct. 5, Venom is directed by Ruben Fleischer and stars Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock/Venom, Michelle Williams as Anne Weying, and Riz Ahmed as Carlton Drake/Riot.
