Toxin Explained: What's Next for Venom 2's Detective Mulligan

Spoiler alert for Venom: Let There Be Carnage! Venom: Let There Be Carnage is in theatres, and one character that has fans perplexed is Detective Mulligan, the future host of the Symbiote Toxin. While the specifics on how we are going to see Detective Mulligan pop up next are unclear, we know they will involve Toxin. The child of the Symbiote Carnage, bonding for the first time with the Detective we met in the sequel.

Throughout his comic history, Toxin has played the role of both villain and anti-hero. Most commonly associated with Mulligan, the Symbiote has also bonded with Eddie Brock. Similar to Venom with Spider-Man, Toxin is most commonly pitted against those he’s formerly bonded with.

Where will we see Toxin next?


While the most likely scenario to see this Symbiote again is in the third movie in the Venom franchise, it isn’t the only possibility. The Venom: Let There Be Carnage post-credits scene showed us a chance of Eddie Brock appearing in Spider-Man: No Way Home, leaving the multiversal potential wide open. Venom appearing in No Way Home as a villain paves the way for Toxin to be his main foe in a third film installment, with Eddie possibly having to team up with Peter to stop him.

Toxin has also gone toe-to-toe with Marvel villain Chthon in the comics, who has been rumored to be a future foe of Doctor Strange. The grand-son of Venom is known to be one of the strongest Symbiotes, so wherever he appears next is sure to create chaos. What do you think lies in store for Detective Mulligan and the Toxin Symbiote?
