At this point, No Marvel fans would be amazed to know Spider-Man: No Way Home does have not one but two post-credits scenes, a long ongoing tradition for superhero films. But the surprise comes in learning what the scene would set up for Sony’s shared Marvel universe as well as for the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Warning: This article contains major spoilers for Spider-Man: No Way Home
There’s a lot to unwind in Sony Pictures’ latest Spider-Man threequel but in regards to the credits scene (Technically, a mid-credit sequence), fans get a glimpse of Sony’s ambitious future plan for an interesting crossover. But if you haven’t seen the film yet, turn away, ruining your experience for this blockbuster Marvel flick is not worth it.
Spider-Man: No Way Home mid-credits scene explained
The first credits scene is sort of a continuation to the post-credit scene from Venom: Let There Be Carnage. Eddie (Tom Hardy) and Venom are shown in a bar in Mexico and are awestruck to know this world contains more than a handful of super-powered beings.
“You’re saying this whole place is, just, tons of super people, There was a billionaire, he had a tin suit, and he could fly. Right? And there was a really angry green man.”
What’s more, Eddie also learns about Thanos, or better put, “purple alien who loves stones”. Nevertheless, After coming to terms with the new revelation from the bartender, Eddie chooses to “speak to this Spider-Man” although his buddy, the Lethal Protector has his interest elsewhere, like skinny dipping. Unfortunately, the two don’t get to do any of the tasks as they are zapped back to their reality, which could be taken as a result of Doctor Strange’s (Benedict Cumberbatch) spell yet it gets a tad complicated.
One theory indicates Venom’s arrival in the MCU was triggered by the events of the Loki series tampering with the multiverse and not necessarily because of the magic. But it also raises the question of why was Eddie pulled back to this timeline if Doctor Strange’s initial spell didn’t affect him? well, fans who watched No Way Home would know that Strange’s spell in the climax made every living person forget Spider-Man’s true identity as Peter Parker, to contain the multiverse from breaking apart.
Technically, Eddie also falls in the same category. Venom 2’s post-credit scene shows Eddie and Venom seeing the live broadcast of J Jonah Jameson’s (J.K. Simmons) expose of Peter Parker. In addition, they learn Spider-Man’s true identity although both films don’t address it directly. So it can be argued the two vanished back to their universe as a result of the last spell. In any case, a tiny piece of the symbiote is left behind in the bar. This will likely be a set-up for a Spider-Man and Venom crossover. Though, it’s still unclear exactly how the two ended up in the MCU and returned. However, its possible Venom might know thanks to his “80 billion light-years of hive knowledge across universes”
It will be interesting to see the two characters from different universes cross paths possibly with a multiverse narrative. Marvel Studios could instead even build on a new symbiote for the MCU. The future is bright for Sony’s shared universe characters.
