Warning! major SPOILERS ahead for Venom! You’ve been warned!
The end credits scene of Venom introduces serial killer Cletus Kasady, played by Woody Harrelson, in a clear set-up for the introduction of the villain Carnage in a potential sequel.
Director Ruben Fleischer recently sat down for a one-on-one spoiler chat with IGN wherein he discussed the casting of Harrelson and his reasons for why Carnage wasn’t used as the villain of the first Venom movie.
The mid-credits scene shows Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy) back in action as a working reporter after defeating the Life Foundation. He visits San Quentin State Prison to interview an inmate, an interview requested by the killer himself.
