Jared Leto’s Morbius film may just have a couple of references to the MCU’s Spider-Man.
The Jared Leto film revolves around the character of Morbius The Living Vampire, one of the more horror-centric villains that Spider-Man has faced in the comics. Since his introduction in 1971, Morbius’ popularity has soared and has transitioned into an anti-hero of sorts. Just yesterday, we received our first look at Jared Leto’s Morbius via a leaked photo and now there’s a report that suggests the character and Tom Holland’s Spider-Man will exist within the same universe.
According to Comicbook.com, Jared Leto’s Morbius will feature multiple references to Tom Holland’s Spider-Man, ostensibly referencing the MCU. In Morbius, audiences will reportedly see wanted posters plastered all over New York that have the MCU’s Spider-Man on them. As you probably remember, in his last outing in the MCU, Spider-Man’s identity was revealed to the masses by Mysterio and J. Jonah Jameson. A rumor from late last year also suggested that J. Jonah Jameson would also make a brief cameo appearance in Morbius. The outlet maintains that anything could change between now and the release of Jared Leto’s Morbius.
If these rumors end up being true, it would be the first official bridge between Sony’s Marvel Universe and the MCU, implying that every possible Marvel character can now interact with one another. One of the biggest questions is to what extent will these characters be interacting with each other. And even then, something as simple as “Wante”d posters, while interesting, is merely a tease to something bigger that could more than likely never come to fruition. While Sony is certainly banking on the name and credibility of the MCU, it’s hard to imagine that the closed-network of the MCU is willing to build a bridge that’ll stand as long as they’re the kings of the box-office.
Only time will tell if Jared Leto’s Morbius will actually reference the MCU’s Spider-Man. The first trailer for the Jared Leto film is expected to hit the internet sometime this coming week, seeing as the sneak peek has already been rated. Beyond that, with the photo leak from yesterday, it would be wise for Sony to release something as fast as possible considering the photograph of Jared Leto as Morbius was met with acclaim.

The film will be based on the Marvel comic Morbius the Living Vampire featuring the popular anti-hero, who first appeared in The Amazing Spider-Man #101. In the comics, the famed scientist Dr. Michael Morbius attempted to cure himself of a rare blood disease and consequently developed a form of vampirism instead.
Directed Daniel Espinosa from a script written by Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless, Morbius stars Jared Leto as the lead anti-hero, Adria Arjona, Matt Smith, Jared Harris, and Tyrese Gibson. Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach are producing the project with Lucas Foster while Palak Patel will oversee for Sony.
Morbius will be released in theaters on July 31, 2020.
