Trivia

Paul J. Franklin, who supervised the visual effects on "Venom," recalls in an interview the different iterations of what he calls the "sonic freak out" effect. The "sonic freak out" is what happens when Venom hears certain frequencies of sound. One early idea was to do a full three-dimension effect of something "extruding" out of Eddie's skin, and evidence of this can be seen in the MRI scene.


Quotes

Astronaut JJ Jameson, III: Life Foundation Control, this is LF1. The specimens are secured, and we're heading home.
Mission Control Operator: Roger, LF1. You are a go for reentry.


Goofs

When Brock is in the MRI, the sound frequency emitted by the machine huts the symbiote. MRIs do not use sound frequencies. There is a loud knocking noise when a test is performed, but is not a sound that emits a high frequency. It is the equivalent of someone knocking loudly on a door. MRIs use high powered magnets when they perform their tests. An ultrasound, on the other hand, would probably produce the high frequency sound that would hurt the symbiote.

And, speaking of magnets, the room in which the MRI is installed has metal objects all over the place. You can not have metal objects in a room with an MRI installed, unless said objects are tightly fastened down. There have been deaths from metal being "sucked" into the machine with a patient being tested. A young boy was recently killed from a fire extinguisher being "sucked" into the machine at high velocity and striking the boy in the head.


Crazy Credits

There is a scene in the closing credits: Eddie Brock goes to visit convicted killer Cletus Kasady in San Quentin Prison.


Alternate Versions

The theatrical release featured an extended clip from Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018) as a post-credits scene. It was however not included in the internet version.
