This is one topic we’ve been all wondering about for some time now. Tom Holland would connect the Sony-Marvel movie adaptation of Morbius to the Spider-Man movies. While Jared Leto’s bloodsucker also has a fan of healing science incorrect, on the Venom side of the house, this new addition to the comic canon of the company is a little more at home.
Surprisingly, we received a response sooner than we expected, because the first Morbius trailer decided to give a pretty big hint to his first look at the end. It’s all about an MCU villain that we’ve not seen since Spider-Man: Homecoming.
Connection Between Morbius And Spider-Man
In a move that surprised almost everybody, we see Michael Keaton cracking wise with Dr. Morbius in an alleyway at the very end of Morbius’ teaser trailer. So, if it looks like what we think, Keaton can go back to film screens as Adrian’s “Vulture” Toomes. We say “may,” because in this first look, there is not a lot of interpretations, and as a Marvel Cinematic Universe fan would tell you, nothing is up for grabs unless confirmed by the studio.
Until breaking down any possible problems with this broad Morbius discovery, it must be asked, why would the film of director Daniel Espinosa wish to bring Adrian Toomes back? And the answer, entirely only, is that it is the bridge between Spider-Man and that particular Sony property and the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s future.
Morbius And Adrian Toomes
As we saw last time, the character of Michael Keaton goes to jail because of his illicit salvage operation/acts of fraud in Spider-Man: Homecoming, if the Vulture does flies again, an event will be held that puts him back on the table. If we see Adrian Toomes in Morbius, he’s presumably been busting out of jail, maybe with Mac “Scorpion” Gargan, and started making The Sinister Six together. Although this is a major “if,” because more specifics are available.
Like Kenneth Choi, Alfre Woodard, Mahershala Ali and Gemma Chan, Michael Keaton may be returning to the Marvel fold as a new character we haven’t yet met. This could still happen since the exact context of this meeting between Dr. Michael Morbius, and Keaton’s unconfirmed character is not defined.
Michael Keaton’s New Character In Morbius
This bet is covered so that Michael Keaton doesn’t feel like he’d jump into the Marvel sandbox to play for everyone at this time. While it is wise to wait before Kevin Feige announces himself that Adrian Toomes has broken out of jail.
Adrian Toomes In Morbius
If Adrian Toomes returns, as much as we like to think in our hearts, how much Michael Keaton we can hope to see in Morbius is the next big question. There’s some star power to focus on with an ensemble that already features Jared Harris, Matt Smith, Adria Arjona, and Tyrese Gibson. This is because we consider Toomes to be the character in question that appears in Morbius.
If the Spider-Man: Homecoming baddie comes out of jail himself, it’s a pretty good bet Keaton’s back to a cameo. Come to think about it; there is an even better opportunity to see the mid-credit stinger forming a connection between Morbius and the MCU, leading to another possible light of hope.
Morbius And Venom
The $1 billion that Morbius entails is one we’ve been puzzling about since Venom’s release in 2018. It’s not a stretch when you think how Morbius is a Spider-Man adjacent character, much like Tom Hardy’s Eddie Brock was in the comics. So if Dr. Michael Morbius would hook up to the incarnation of Spider-Man by Marvel Cinematic Universe, what can Venom and all the other characters linked to Spider in Sony’s pocket say?
A connection has been verified between two worlds in the last few months, and if that past deal between Sony and Marvel Comics has never been reached, one can guarantee that Peter Parker will somehow run into one of these horror-tinted comic books.
Adrian Toomes from Michael Keaton serves as the perfect key to unlocking the shared world of Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios, and it seems as if this was not supposed to be a subtle nod to Spider-Man: Homecoming, or even Keaton himself.
This is when the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the parallel world of Sony’s Spider-Man will not just clash but converge to a greater whole. But it remains on the scales as an even prospect until it is confirmed or denied to be in Morbius for Adrian Toomes.
That’s why it’s so essential to confirm that this surprise connection bumps into a well-known move to tie Sony even closer to the fabric of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. So we’re going to have to keep our eyes and ears open for the future.
This first look at Morbius, meanwhile, is a dark and frightening treat that aims to frighten and blind its audience. The film takes place in the darkness of your local film theatre on July 31.
