All The 'Venom' Easter Eggs And References You Missed

After Carlton Drake's (Riz Ahmed) Life Foundation shuttle crashes on Earth, all the passengers die, save one. When Drake sees him, he says, "Is that Jameson?" 

Spider-Man fans may recognize the last name matches Daily Bugle editor-in-chief J. Jonah Jameson. And the astronaut is none other than his son, John. It makes sense. If you've got an astronaut role in a Marvel story, you might as well use the younger Jameson.

John Jameson also appears in Spider-Man 2, as Mary Jane Watson's heroic rebound boyfriend who comforts her after Spider-Man saves the day. Daniel Gillies plays him in that film.
