Spider-Man: No Way Home featured Tom Hardy's Venom in a lengthy post-credits scene. Even though some fans were expecting the two icons to face-off, Brock was immediately transported back into his timeline.
But this may not be the end for Venom, according to No Way Home's writers, Erik Sommers and Chris McKenna. During IGN Fan Fest, the duo has teased the MCU possibly establishing their own version of the symbiote.
Spider-Man: No Way Home Writers Say MCU Venom Is Possible
The mid-credits scene of the Webhead's third solo outing saw a drop of the gooey symbiote fall off Brock, before being transported back.
Sommers notes how the substance is now in Tom Holland-Parker's world, implying that another Venom is certainly plausible:
It leaves the door open for possibilities. As opposed to just seeing him go back and not seeing any symbiote. So it just allows for some exciting possibilities in the future.
When asked about any plans or ideas to write up Venom in a future MCU picture, McKenna clarifies that no plans are in motion from their sides:
I have no idea. That is above our pay grade. We are part of a bigger, larger universe that we are not the gods of, we're just mortals in. I think it was a fun idea that the sixth [member of] the Sinister Six gets stuck in a bar and doesn't get out of there, but maybe he leaves a little something behind. Again, we're not masters of that course of that next adventure.
The duo previously revealed that there were plans to integrate Eddie Brock into the final fight at the Statue of Liberty.
Venom would've fought alongside the other five villains, offering a battle between the trio of Spider-Men and the Sinister Six. Mysterio could've also joined the fight, following recent concept art of the villain scrapping with Doctor Strange.
