Morbius Gets Its First Trailer and Creates a Lot of Questions

There’s high anticipation for Morbius, the first “Spider-Man Universe” film from Sony after the release of Venom. A picture of Spider-Man can be seen on a wall in one scene in the trailer, though it’s a screenshot of the “Raimi Suit” from the Playstation 4 video game.

Jared Leto plays the lead Michael Morbius. Dangerously ill with a rare blood disorder, and determined to save others suffering his same fate, Dr. Morbius attempts a desperate gamble. What at first appears to be a radical success soon reveals itself to be a remedy potentially worse than the disease.

The most intriguing part of the trailer is the surprise appearance by Michael Keaton at the end. Keaton played the Vulture in Spider-Man: Homecoming. At the end of the film he’s in jail and wearing a white suit that’s very similar to this tease. It’s unknown what his role will be in this film or if he’s playing the Vulture again. That latter bit would make Morbius part of the MCU. It’s also a fun wink to Batman and Joker, which Keaton and Leto played in different films.

Morbius stars Jared Leto, Matt Smith, Adria Arjona, Jared Harris, Al Madrigal, and Tyrese Gibson.

The film is directed by Daniel Espinosa from a story by Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless, and screenplay by Sazama, Sharpless, Art Marcum, and Matt Holloway.

Morbius was created by Roy Thomas and Gil Kane and debuted in 1971 in The Amazing Spider-Man #101.

Morbius comes to theaters July 31, 2020.

• For a time, Michael Morbius was a Nobel Prize winning geneticist. Now, he haunts the rooftops of Brooklyn driven by an unquenchable thirst for human blood that all his expertise and experimentation has only made worse!
• Grappling with his hunger may be one thing, but Morbius’ persistent prodding of his genetic code has had an unfortunate and unexpected side effect – the destruction of what little is left of Morbius’ humanity!

“For the Moment the Door is Closed” for Spider-Man’s MCU Return

Spider-Man: Far From Home

Sony Pictures chairman and CEO Tony Vinciquerra has stated that “for the moment the door is closed” when it comes to Spider-Man‘s return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But there’s a chance of a return.

Speaking at Variety‘s Entertainment & Technology summit, Vinciquerra also said “it’s a long life” cryptically hinting there is a chance for a return down the road.

Vinciquerra also stated that there’s “no ill will” between Marvel and Sony after the failure to reach an agreement and it’s been “an interesting couple of weeks” for the studio due to the fan reaction to the news.

Marvel Studio head Kevin Feige being stretched thin with the next phases of the MCU bwas part of the issue.

Sony is going ahead with their own Spider-Man universe as the company is in production on a sequel to Venom, a film based on Morbius, and “five or six” television series set in the Spider-Man world in the works.

Vinciquerra pointed towards Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse and The Boys as to evidence their future endeavors will be fine and the studio is “pretty capable of doing what (they) have to do here.”

In the same talk, Vinciquerra stated Sony Studios wasn’t for sale and touched upon the studios’ decision to stay out of the streaming wars. That decision allows them to be “more transparent” to creators by not becoming “beholden to any platform.”
