A new set photo published from Morbius, Spider-Man spin-off with Jared Leto, one of the productions whose show date has been delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, has increased the expectations that we can see Venom in the movie.
Sony Pictures announced yesterday that the Morbius movie with Jared Leto, scheduled to hit theaters on July 31, 2020, was postponed until 2021 due to the coronavirus outbreak. Considering that many high profile productions miss the vision dates in this process, it is not possible to describe this development as a ‘surprise’, but it is still a disappointment.
A Reddit user who shared photos from the set of Morbius, whose shooting was completed and waiting for the vision date, caused a new wave of excitement. In the photo you can see right below, there is Venom graffiti made on a building wall. Spider-Man spin-off, which we will watch Leto in the leading role, will pass in the same cinematic universe as Venom. So it is quite normal to have such hidden messages in the movie.
As you may recall, in the first trailer of Morbius, we saw a murderer, a Spider-Man poster written on a wall. But what was confusing there was that the Spider-Man poster in question was inspired by Sam Raimi’s original Spider-Man trilogy. This brought the questions of whether we will see multiple Peter Parker characters just like in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse animation.
Another question mark is whether Morbius and Venom will lead the Sinister Six team. The gang, also known as “Troubled Six”, was founded against Spider-Man by Doctor Octopus, who realized that he lost in a one-on-one fight. Venom, which entered the vision in 2018 and gathered $ 856 million worldwide box office revenue despite being hit by critics, was the first fruit of Spider-verse created by Sony independently of Marvel. Where the new cinematic universe is headed is currently uncertain, but Morbius seems to be the key to many events.
Venom 2, which we will watch Tom Hardy in the role of Eddie Brock / Venom once again, will meet with the audience on October 2, if there is no delay. Morbius’ new vision date has been set as March 19, 2021.
