Another Spider-Man Easter egg has been found on brand new set photos from Jared Leto’s Morbius.
Jared Leto’s Morbius made headlines earlier this year when its first trailer revealed that Spider-Man existed in the same universe via a poster showcasing Tobey Maguire’s Spider-Man from the Sam Raimi movies. Micheal Keaton, who played Adrian Toomes in Spider-Man: Homecoming, also made a brief appearance in the trailer as it came to a close. Since the trailer for the Jared Leto film dropped, Spider-Man fans have been speculating as to how the famed web-slinger would fit into a solo Morbius film. Details are slim on that front, but a brand new Easter egg from a set photo of Morbius once again points to Spider-Man.
Jared Leto and co. are currently in Los Angeles to work on the Morbius reshoots. From an on-set photo, we’re able to see that a bus carries an advertisement for The Daily Bugle with the title, “Where is Spider-Man?” When looked at closely, the logo from The Daily Bugle is the same as the one seen in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man films.
More than ever, it’s certain that Jared Leto’s Morbius will lean slightly towards teasing Spider-Man, though it’s uncertain what exactly Sony wants to do with that. Fans have conflicting information as the trailers suggest that both Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man and the MCU’s Spider-Man (due to the Adrian Toomes connection) exist within the same universe. With this new info, we’re led to believe that The Daily Bugle in the Jared Leto film is the one from Sam Raimi’s film.
With all the information we’ve received, it’s plausible that Spider-Man in Jared Leto’s Morbius universe has disappeared after being wrongfully accused of a crime. It could also be that the revelation that Peter Parker is in fact Spider-Man, which caused the web slinger to retreat.

Here is the official synopsis for Jared Leto’s Morbius:
One of Marvel’s most compelling and conflicted characters comes to the big screen as Oscar winner Jared Leto transforms into the enigmatic antihero, Michael Morbius. Dangerously ill with a rare blood disorder, and determined to save others suffering his same fate, Dr. Morbius attempts a desperate gamble. What at first appears to be a radical success soon reveals itself to be a remedy potentially worse than the disease.
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.
