‘Morbius’ Director Might Have Just Spoiled Tom Hardy’s Cameo

Daniel Espinosa also worked with Tom Hardy on Child 44.

Morbius director Daniel Espinosa name-dropped Venom star Tom Hardy when talking about working with big movie stars.

Sony is quietly building its own Marvel universe outside of the MCU that started with Tom Hardy’s Venom film. However, in Morbius‘ second trailer, Michael Keaton’s Adrian Toomes made a surprising appearance and that might not be the only one in the finished product.

While speaking with the Swedish site, MovieZine, Morbius director Daniel Espinosa seemingly revealed that Venom star Tom Hardy would also show up in the Sony film when asked about working with big movie stars on bigger projects:

“It usually feels strange before the day begins, when you look at the schedule and stand on the set yourself. When you walk around there, the recording looks just like a Swedish production, but then when you look at the schedule and read names like Michael Keaton, Jared Leto, Tom Hardy, then it feels cool and very exciting. But once you start working, it’s exactly the same thing. An actor wants a director and actors want to be directed.”

It’s worth noting that Daniel Espinosa worked with Tom Hardy on Child 44, so he might be referring to the 2015 film.

Here is the official synopsis for 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 Daniel Espinosa from a script written by Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless, the film 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 hit theaters on January 28th, 2022. Stay tuned for all the latest news on Tom Hardy’s Venom: Let There Be Carnage and subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original video content!
