The trailer for Spider-Man spin-off Morbius, which stars Jared Leto because the vampiric Marvel character, is right here. The trailer is not all that thrilling at first look: it appears like a cross between a superhero origin story and an Underworld film, however the large information right here is that it has a Marvel Cinematic Universe connection.
On the finish of the trailer, Michael Keaton turns up, presumably reprising his function as Adrian Toomes, AKA the Vulture, from Spider-Man: Homecoming.
This can be a vital twist. Morbius hails from Sony just like the Tom Hardy film Venom did, so we assumed it lived in its personal little universe away from the Avengers and friends. This trailer, although, means that this spin-off is related to the broader MCU story not directly. Have a look:
Morbius hasn’t been introduced as a part of the MCU’s Part 4, so you’ll be able to anticipate that something that occurs on this film lives independently from every thing Disney is doing. In spite of everything, whereas Marvel Studios co-produced Spider-Man: Homecoming and Far From House, it did not work on Venom and it isn’t engaged on Morbius.
This means Sony has some company over how the characters are used, no matter whether or not they originated in an official MCU film or not. If that is the case, it means it isn’t inconceivable that Tom Holland’s Peter Parker might pop up in one in every of these spin-offs.
Morbius additionally stars Matt Smith and Jared Harris, and is launched in cinemas on July 31, 2020.
