Morbius director Daniel Espinosa talked about Sony’s “exciting” plans for their Spider-Man universe.
Sony has been trying to get a Spider-Man universe off the ground since The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Years later and it’s finally happening with two Venom and Morbius under their belt. A Kraven film starring Aaron Taylor-Johnson is also starting production, and another focusing on Madame Web is in pre-production.
Morbius opened to $84 million worldwide with negative reviews, but Sony is still moving forward with many other Spider-Man-related projects. Morbius‘ post-credits scene notably featured Michael Keaton’s Vulture seemingly assembling the Sinister Six to take down a Spider-Man. During an interview with Total Film, Moribus director Daniel Espinosa teased Sony’s plans:
“I think that the future is very exciting, and I think that the plans that Sony has in very closed rooms, that I’m not really allowed to attend, or the small snippets I’ve heard, fills me with joy. But if I said anything, they would shoot me on the spot.”
Here is the synopsis for Sony’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, a darkness inside him is unleashed and transforms this healer into a hunter.
Directed by Daniel Espinosa from a script written by Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless, Morbius stars Jared Leto, Adria Arjona, Matt Smith, Jared Harris and Tyrese Gibson. Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach produced the project with Lucas Foster, with Palak Patel overseeing it for Sony.
