Eddie obviously denies he has that level of affection for Venom, romantic or otherwise. And while Venom might merely be teasing him by repeatedly announcing “You love me!” it’s worth remembering that Venom is literally in Eddie’s head—not only can they talk to each other internally, Venom also knows what Eddie is feeling. Also, Eddie has to think about it before he decides he doesn’t love his parasite. And then there’s Serkis’ full quote about Let There Be Carnage being a love story, which was provided in press materials for the film:

“The film is a love story—but not the love story you might think. It’s very much about the extraordinary relationship between symbiote and host. Any love affair has its pitfalls, its high points and low points; Venom and Eddie’s relationship absolutely causes problems and stress, and they have a near-hatred for each other. But they have to be with each other—they can’t live without each other. That’s companionship—love—the things that relationships are really about.”


Here’s hoping Spider-Man won’t break the pair up now that they’re in the MCU, as confirmed by Let There Be Carnage’s post-credits scene. Of course, there’s no word if they’ll be making an appearance in Spider-Man: No Way Home when it hits theaters on December 17. 

Venom: Let There Carnage is now streaming on Vudu.
