After the huge success that was Venom, Sony is expanding their shared cinematic universe with a Morbius the Living Vampire film starring Oscar-winner Jared Leto. The film is currently in production, but fans have already spotted some neat tips of the hat to some Marvel lore, including Stan Lee and Silver Sable.
Courtesy of eagle-eyed Reddit user JLSComics, we have photographic proof of some Easter Eggs on the set of the Morbius movie. One, in particular, recognizes popular Spider-Man frenemy, Silver Sable. There is also a nod to former Marvel Comics publisher and Spider-Man co-creator Stan Lee. The late Hollywood icon may not be able to film any more cameo appearances in Marvel films, so it is nice to see those working on these projects carry the light for him.
Check out the nods to Stan Lee and Silver Sable (among others) on the set of the upcoming Morbius film at the original Reddit post, which you can access below:
