The story of Venom roots back to old Marvel comic books where Eddie Brock, played by Tom Hardy, ends up absorbing an alien-like substance who turns out to be called Venom. The two become a working duo by the end of the movie to fight evil.
The multiverse, the idea that there are multiple versions of the universe we live in, is a concept Marvel recently brought to the light. The character Venom has been seen in two different universes so far, once in 2007’s Spider-man 3 and later again in his own movie, Venom, which was released in 2018. Many people went into the theatres to watch Venom: Let There Be Carnage expecting to see some sort of Spider-man cameo because of the multiverse.

Eminem, a famous American rapper, was brought back by Marvel for another special song that played during the credits, proving to be a great way to end off the film. True Marvel fans always know not to leave the theatre once the credits start rolling.
