Trivia: When Ann and Eddie are on their date, Ann reminds Eddie of his firing from the Daily Globe. In the Spider-Man comics, Eddie Brock was a reporter for the Daily Globe, a rival newspaper of the Daily Bugle. In the comics, a string of murders were being carried out by a serial killer named the Sin-Eater. Eddie interviewed a man who claimed to be the Sin-Eater but Spider-Man captured the real one and the man that Eddie interviewed was found out to be a compulsive confessor. This incident caused Eddie to get fired from the Daily Globe and sometime after becoming Venom, moves to San Francisco after agreeing with Spider-Man that they will not bother each other on the condition that Eddie no longer commits any more crimes.
Trivia: When Eddie walks into Mrs. Chen's store, Eddie asks Venom what he would like to eat. Venom responds that he wants tater tots and chocolate. In Venom: The Hunger, it's discovered that the symbiotes need a chemical called phenethylamine to survive. This chemical can be found in both brains and in chocolate.
Trivia: Marvel producers confirmed that Venom is not set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it is in its own universe. It is Sony property and is the first film in the Sony Marvel Universe, which is adjunct to the MCU.
