Venom: Let There Be Carnage is currently playing in theaters, but we're betting you didn't spot this unexpected link to The Matrix Resurrections while you were watching it on the big screen...

We recently saw the first trailer for The Matrix Resurrections, but did you know there was a new look at the movie in Venom: Let There Be Carnage? Both films were shot in San Francisco at the same time, and when Tom Hardy's Eddie Brock climbs the city's Coit Tower, those helicopters you can see in the background were actually there not by design, but because they were being used on The Matrix 4.

Venom: Let There Be Carnage location manager Christopher Kusiak dropped that bombshell during a recent interview with Screen Rant

"Lots of stuff impacted filming. A lot of our driving shots went away because Matrix controlled all of downtown," he explained. "We ended up moving a stunt up onto the top of the parking garage because we couldn’t get to the areas we wanted because of The Matrix. But if we would’ve been there first, it probably would’ve gone the other way."

"The helicopters were actually on the Matrix movie," Kusiak noted. "The Matrix was filming at the same time so we were catching part of their activity on camera."

We can only dream about what a clash between Venom and Neo would look like, but this is a fun piece of trivia and one that shows the unexpected outcome of two movies shooting within the same vicinity at the same time. Will we see any signs of Venom: Let There Be Carnage in the next Matrix movie? For now, that obviously remains to be seen.

We don't have long to wait, though, because The Matrix Resurrections will arrive on December 22.
