RUMOR: VENOM: THE LAST DANCE Will Finally Introduce One Of Eddie Brock's Greatest Villains

A new rumour claims Venom: The Last Dance will finally introduce Knull, the God of the Symbiotes and perhaps Eddie Brock's greatest enemy outside of Peter Parker/Spider-Man. Find more details here...

Over the past 24 hours, a rumour has surfaced on social media which suggests Venom: The Last Dance will feature the debut of Knull, one of Eddie Brock's greatest enemies on the page. 

It's said that he'll be the one who sends the symbiote-eating Xenophage after the Lethal Protector because he needs him to "execute a secret master plan." As of now, there's no word on who would play Knull or how big of a role he'll likely play in the threequel. 

However, other reliable social media scoopers have since chimed in, and it sounds like there's at least some truth to this (in a movie which, despite the goofy first trailer, will seemingly lean heavily into horror territory).

Knull was introduced by writer Donny Cates and artist Ryan Stegman and first appeared in 2018's Venom #3. The villain is an ancient, malevolent deity and the creator of the symbiotes, including Venom and Carnage (he also has ties to Gorr the God Butcher). 

Knull's origin dates back to the early universe before the existence of the Celestials. He dwelled in the void, a dark space before creation, and was disturbed by the emergence of light. In response, Knull created the first symbiote, a living darkness known as the All-Black Necrosword, which he used to slay a Celestial. This act of rebellion led to his exile, during which he crafted an army of symbiotes to spread his influence.

Knull's power is immense, capable of manipulating darkness and symbiotes at will. He views himself as a God of darkness and has a profound hatred for light and life, and very nearly conquered the Marvel Universe in the present day. 

If this is Venom: The Last Dance's endgame, it's a shame Sony Pictures hasn't better set the stage for his eventual debut. The fact he wasn't hinted at in the trailer seems to suggest Knull will be a surprise, though he may well appear in the next trailer. 

In Venom: The Last Dance, Tom Hardy returns as Venom, one of Marvel’s greatest and most complex characters, for the final film in the trilogy. Eddie and Venom are on the run. Hunted by both of their worlds and with the net closing in, the duo are forced into a devastating decision that will bring the curtains down on Venom and Eddie's last dance.

The movie stars Tom Hardy, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Juno Temple, Peggy Lu, Alanna Ubach, Stephen Graham, and Rhys Ifans. Kelly Marcel directs from a screenplay she wrote, based on a story by Hardy and Marcel. The film is produced by Avi Arad, Matt Tolmach, Amy Pascal, Kelly Marcel, Tom Hardy and Hutch Parker.

Venom: The Last Dance will be released in theaters on October 25.

Will there also be a connection to madame web? 🤔
ImBatman4realz - 6/16/2024, 9:05 AM
@YouFlopped - it seems that most of Sony’s Spider-Man Universe is only connected tangentially through the various Spider-Verses (multiverse).
Origame - 6/16/2024, 9:07 AM
@ImBatman4realz - I mean, we do know bare minimum there's a direct connection between morbius and venom as morbius directly referenced venom as someone who exists in his universe.
harryba11zack - 6/16/2024, 9:12 AM
@YouFlopped - Hopefully.
Slotherin - 6/16/2024, 1:09 PM
@Origame - true.
JustAWaffle - 6/17/2024, 1:15 AM
@YouFlopped - Yes. And Knull will be an invading cloud in the sky.
CerealKiller1 - 6/16/2024, 7:49 AM
Sorry, so the rumour is that Knull needs Venom for a plan, so he decided to send creatures that can completely destroy him?
Vigor - 6/16/2024, 8:02 AM
@CerealKiller1 - maybe subdue and capture him for the plan

Perhaps this is secret wars related?
Knull uses venom to protect their universe?

Idk. I just know I have better ideas than sony
IAmAHoot - 6/16/2024, 8:39 AM
@CerealKiller1 - I imagine it's that he needs Venom (as in, to kill Venom) in order to exact his takeover plan on Earth, or to obtain some resource, etc. He needs the Lethal Protector out of the way to stop defending, or just needs Venom for his knowledge now that's he's been on Earth for so long (similar to how he (was going to) shared his vast expanding knowledge to Eddie before he got sucked away in the Carnage end credit scene). Standard fare, overall.
CerealKiller1 - 6/16/2024, 9:02 AM
@Vigor - They are creatures whose sole purpose is to eat symbiote. Don’t think they’re capable of ‘subdue and capture’
CerealKiller1 - 6/16/2024, 9:04 AM
@IAmAHoot - Well again, that last option doesn’t work when you’re sending things designed to eat the person who’s knowledge you need

The other options are definitely viable, but make Knull look like a little bitch, so either way if the rumour is true then Sony have struck out with this franchise
Vigor - 6/16/2024, 9:10 AM
@CerealKiller1 - it's comicbook movies. They (fox, Sony, disney) change things
malschla - 6/16/2024, 9:31 AM
@CerealKiller1 - a nearly omnipotent being NEEDS one of his random creations or he can’t succeed… because he isn’t as powerful as the thing he created. What’s so ridiculous about that?
malschla - 6/16/2024, 4:50 PM
@CerealKiller1 - I got a message saying you replied to me, but as is common on this site, I don’t see it for some reason.
CerealKiller1 - 6/16/2024, 5:36 PM
@malschla - Nah all good, think I originally misunderstood your message, so deleted my comment that didn’t make sense in hindsight 😊
malschla - 6/16/2024, 9:27 PM
@CerealKiller1 - haha, okay… forty if I worded it in a confusing manner. I should learn to be like the kids and use “/s”
malschla - 6/16/2024, 9:28 PM
@malschla - SORRY, not forty
Thing94 - 6/16/2024, 7:53 AM
I'll believe it when I see it
ObserverIO - 6/16/2024, 7:59 AM
Didn't we already see a dead Knull in Love and Thunder or was that just some rando with Knull's sword?
Apophis71 - 6/16/2024, 8:08 AM
@ObserverIO - Think that was just a rando with the sword but could be wrong.
Origame - 6/16/2024, 9:06 AM
@ObserverIO - it really didn't look like knull. He was blue.

Besides, that'd be lame to have knull be some random guy taken out by the opening kill gut offscreen. Especially since no way home brought a symbiote into the mcu.
ImBatman4realz - 6/16/2024, 9:08 AM
@ObserverIO - I don’t think that was supposed to be Knull, but was some other rando who had gotten his sword somehow
Nolanite - 6/16/2024, 8:01 AM
And it'll still be better than The Marvels lulz
Nolanite out
marvel72 - 6/16/2024, 8:27 AM
Knull such a good villain,could be wasted like Carnage was in the sequel.
bobevanz - 6/16/2024, 8:28 AM
Is it Sarah Jessica Parker? Lol

Would be typical Sony to rush Knull.
Sony + Venom = rushed shit
ImBatman4realz - 6/16/2024, 9:07 AM
@OptimusCrime - or maybe Knull will be the Sony’s big bad like Thanos 🤔
OptimusCrime - 6/16/2024, 9:15 AM
@ImBatman4realz - yeah... and this will be Hardy's last movie.
So we will have Knull, with no Venom...

Which is just as stupid as a Spider-manless, Spider-man universe
ImBatman4realz - 6/16/2024, 9:31 AM
@OptimusCrime - they could renegotiate contracts, and/or get an Eddie Brock from somewhere in the Spider-(multi)Verse. It’s all convoluted, but so is the MCU right now.
OptimusCrime - 6/16/2024, 1:53 PM
@ImBatman4realz - yeah, but its Sony...
ImBatman4realz - 6/16/2024, 9:07 AM
If true — this could be awesome. I personally enjoy these flicks much more than a lot of recent MCU releases. What does that say about the errors of quantity over quality?
Amaru - 6/16/2024, 11:58 AM
@ImBatman4realz - I think it says more about you than anything else.

Think the premise already made that clear there was a big chance of Knull appearing, no need to throw in some rumours about it. Anyone could make that guess
The1st - 6/17/2024, 8:50 AM
@bkmeijer1 - Yup. The only thing more interesting is that people still don't understand that...well, Sony gonna Sony.
RitoRevolto - 6/16/2024, 9:26 AM
One more thing Sony will manage to botch.
SummersEssex - 6/16/2024, 11:14 AM
Cramming Knull into this movie sounds as logical as using parallax in that green lantern movie that might have been ok if they hadn’t. Might.

WOW! They must mean the Sony executive brain trust. Venom has no worse villain to face than this.
