Spider-Man might be facing off against Venom on the big screen again. Rumors have quickly spread across the internet that Venom: Let There Be Carnage features an end-credits scene in which Eddie Brock (Venom) watches the broadcast of J. Jonah Jameson berating Spider-Man after the defeat of Mysterio in Spider-Man: Far from Home.

The teaser doesn’t confirm that the two will meet in the fourth Spider-Man film, but director Andy Serkis said in a recent interview that they will definitely meet at some point. However, he wants to work on developing Venom further. Some sources believe it could happen in a Spider-Man or Venom movie, while others claim it will happen in a Secret Wars movie. Kevin Feige has debunked rumors that the project is in the works but suggested it could happen if there was enough interest. Secret Wars is the comic series where the Venom symbiote was originally introduced.

Look, that’s the question on everyone’s lips. They want to know if Venom is gonna meet Spider-Man, but personally, it’s never gonna happen. I’m only joking, of course it’s gonna happen…But, I think there’s so much… Look, it depends when you want to get there, and also, what the appetite is. If people want more Venom stories, then, to jump straight to Spider-Man, you could be missing out on so many great supervillain characters in between now and then. So, in a way, by rushing to it, you might be closing the door…Whereas, if people are loving the lore, then I think all of those other characters that are then in the canon, that are there in the lore of Venom – for instance all of the supervillains that are in Ravencroft, the institute for the criminally insane – you know, there could be some fantastic stories. There are other characters like Toxin, and all the other symbiotes to be had as well before then…But, point taken, yes everybody wants to see Venom fight Spider-Man… and it’s appetite, how much people want… they’ll be sacrificing all of that stuff if that want to rush straight to that.
