Morbius Same universe as the Venom movie and who is its Spider-Man


We’re days away from one of the most delayed Marvel movies in history. Morbius hits theaters on April 1, and we’ll see another Sony Marvel character come to life in a solo movie. However, Morbius may not be as lonely a hero as some might think. In a new Twitter interview from All Places, director Daniel Espinosa answered questions about the Spider-Verse. The most important news is that Morbius would take place in the same universe as Venom and Venom: let there be carnage. Espinosa also said that there is indeed a Spider-Man in this corner of the multiverse, and we’ll soon find out who it is. In the past, we’ve speculated that it will be Andrew Garfield’s Spider-Man who will be the Morbius film, possibly leading to amazing spider man 3. Let’s discover Morbius, Venom and Spider-Man!

Even more interesting in this interview is what Daniel Espinosa said about Michael Keaton reprising his role as Adrian Toomes. I speculated that he would just be this Vulture Corner of the Multiverse. Still, Espinosa says he’s the “same character” that was in Spider-Man: Homecoming.

He said:

“At the end of Venom: let there be carnage and Spider-Man: No Coming Homeand in No coming home itself, it is clearly established that it is possible for characters to cross from one multiverse to another. The events of No coming home had the effect of transferring Venom and Vulture (and possibly others) back and forth between the MCU and the Venom universe.

This is interesting on several levels, and we’ll explain why below. Yet we now know that not only Morbius have a Spider-Man, but he’s also in the same universe as Venom, and MCU characters can come and go.

Why the Morbius The universe matters and who is Spider-Man in his movie

When Sony and Disney settled their issue and brought Spider-Man back to the MCU, things were different. Kevin Feige, the MCU guru himself, said Spider-Man had the unique power to jump between universes. This leads us to believe that Tom Holland will be the Spider-Man from the Morbius movie, especially since they insisted on having Tom Hardy’s Venom hop universes to bring awareness to him. And with Across the Spider-Verse Part 1 Coming up, it’s very possible that Tom Holland’s Spidey will be sucked into the multiverse and meet Hailee Steinfeld’s Ghost Spider and Shameik Moore’s Miles Morales.

And if Adrian Toomes also travels the universes, that makes a Tom Holland Spider-Man much more likely. Of course, we are well aware that Morbius already has a Spider-Man, as we’ve seen in the trailer and set photos, with footage suggesting that Spider-Man is wanted for murder. This, to me, points to Andrew Garfield’s Spider-Man, especially after he told Tom Holland’s Spidey that he “stopped firing” his “punches”. Plus, since Sony’s Spider-Verse is on hold due to MCU hits, two Spider-Men could fix that. Tom Holland could browse the web in the MCU, while Andrew Garfield services Sony’s corner of the multiverse.

Finally, it seems that we are heading towards a sinister six moviewhich has been Sony’s goal since the ill-fated The Amazing Spider-Man 2. If Morbius and Venom are in the same universe with the Vulture (who at some point is making a new suit), they’re halfway through a movie where Sinister Six takes on “a” Spider-Man.

Experience Morbius in the same universe as Venom, which hits theaters on April 1.
