After “Venom”, Sony continues its saga linked to the universe of “Spider-Man” with “Morbius”, vampire played by Jared Leto. And the new trailer multiplies the nods to the different incarnations of Spider-Man.
With multiple enemies likely to stand in his way in No Way Home, his next MCU adventure, other Spider-Man opponents are biding their time in the shadows. Including Venom, who could soon cross the path of the Spider-Man. And the vampire Morbius, who is currently sharpening his fangs while awaiting his arrival in theaters on January 26th.
Directed by Daniel Espinosa (Life) and played by Jared Leto, the feature film will look back on the origins and the transformation of Doctor Michael Morbius into a bloodsucker, while he sought a cure for the rare blood disease from which he suffers. . In this regard, the second trailer doesn’t differ much from the first. But it stands out for its easter eggs.
From the first images, we could glimpse the costume worn by Tobey Maguire at Sam Raimi’s, as the Vulture, Tom Holland’s opponent played by Michael Keaton, made an appearance. And if this new trailer doesn’t explain the why and how, it might raise a few more questions with its nods to … Andrew Garfield’s version.
The Oscorp tower from The Amazing Spider-Man saga is indeed visible at the bend of a shot, while a copy of the “Daily Bugle” mentions the characters of Rhino and Black Cat. Which were present, in a more or less obvious way, in the second opus signed Marc Webb, under the respective features of Paul Giamatti and Felicity Jones.
Should this be seen as an additional step towards the confirmation that all fans are waiting for, namely that No Way Home will open wide the doors of a multiverse bringing together all the incarnations of Spider-Man? No doubt the mystery should last until the film’s release on December 15. And maybe we’ll have some info then on how Morbius will fit into this big set a month later.
Given his joke in the last scene of the trailer, the vampire should evolve in the same branch of the universe as Venom. At least initially. But one wonders if he will be the real villain of the story, or if he will have to face an antagonist. The character played by Matt Smith, perhaps, whose presence in both trailers is so far limited to the same plan?
