When Eddie Brock acquires the powers of a symbiote, he will have to release his alter-ego "Venom" to save his life.
Visual effects supervisor Paul J. Franklin said in a recent interview that his favorite sequence in the film is when Venom cuts open the spaceship's fuel tanks with Riot's blade. He says, "It's a great bit of linear storytelling, which provides an unexpected twist at the end of it all."
Outstanding! Now, let's bite off all the heads off and pile them up in the corner.
Eddie Brock: Why would we do that?
Venom: Pile of bodies, pile of heads.
The movie establishes that the symbiotes are hurt by loud sounds between 4000 and 6000 hertz, even though hertz are a measure of frequency, not volume. But it's not a mistake. For a sound to affect the symbiotes it has to be both in this specific frequency range, which apparently resonates with this life form, and loud enough to make this resonance harmful. In particular, higher frequencies would have no such effect regardless of the volume, and even sounds in the 4-6 KHz range would have minimal effect if they're not loud enough (otherwise Venom would be under constant pain, because such frequencies are quite common, well within human auditory range).
In its entirety, including the two mid-credits sequences, the closing credits sequence lasts for nineteen minutes.
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.
