Spoiler warning, proceed with caution!
When Venom director Ruben Fleischer set out to adapt the wildly popular comic for the big screen, he wanted it to be a love-letter to longtime fans. Fleischer even copied frames straight from popular Venom comics, making it incredibly likely there are secrets you missed in the film.
A large swath of Venom Easter eggs reference the titular character's place in the Spider-Verse, but they're not there simply to wink at devout fans. As was the case with Spider-Man: Homecoming Easter eggs, Venom looks ahead to the larger superhero universe and to potentially impending movies in the anti-hero's future.
It's refreshing to see a director care this much about their source material, and it creates a fun ride for audiences who know the comics by heart. For everybody else, Venom's Easter eggs are just icing on the deliciously vicious, gooey cake.
