The first Morbius Trailer arrived online today and a bigger deal than expected was received. That's not to say that a Marvel Comics adaptation with an Oscar winner, in this case Jared Leto, isn't a big deal in itself, but the trailer contained some pretty big surprises. Such a surprise was a kind of cameo by none other than Spider-Man. But it was not a cameo in the flesh and, on closer inspection, certainly not the version of the web sling that the fans expected.
Around 2:10 in the trailer, we see Jared Leto's main character walking through an alley in an orange overall. Breaking out of prison Morbius the Living Vampire ? Maybe that's a question for another time. When Jared Leto wanders down the alley, we see a painting on a wall by Spider-Man on which the word "murderer" is painted. This seems to imply that we are dealing with the consequences of Spider-Man: Far From Home . In the post-credit scene, Mysterio unmasked Peter Parker as Spider-Man and made it look like he was a murderer. However, fans will surely notice that this is not Tom Holland's version of the character. Rather, it is more like Tobey Maguire's version of the Sam Raimi trilogy.
This raises a lot of questions, and unfortunately we have only a few answers for now. To further complicate matters, Michael Keaton appears as Adrian Toomes (19459004) at the end of the trailer, also known as Vulture, who we last saw in Spider-Man: Homecoming (19459007). That alone seems to imply that Morbius is playing in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But the other version of Spider-Man we see on the wall suggests otherwise.
So it is Morbius plays in the same universe as the Sam Raimi Spider-Man trilogy ? Does this universe have a strikingly similar vulture? Have there been similar events in this universe? The most logical answer regarding comics is that Morbius will build a multiverse, similar to Spider-Man: In den Spinnenvers . This would allow different versions of the same characters to appear in Sony's small spin-off universe, which also includes Venom while these films are not tightly bound to the MCU. However, it would leave this door a little open.
As some fans emphasized, the picture on the wall also looks as if it could be a picture from the Spider-Man PS4 game. Even if this is the case, it certainly brought a lot of inspiration from Tobey Maguire as a Spidey. Anyway, it's not the same Spider-Man from the MCU, but we have a villain from the MCU. It will undoubtedly be fascinating to see how all of this is explained in the coming months. Morbius ., Directed by Daniel Espinosa ( Life ), is to be released on July 31 by Sony Pictures

Okay , this is definitely Sam Raimi's Spider-Man, who is tagged with "murderer" in this shot from the trailer #MORBIUS . But Michael Keaton is there, apparently as Adrian Toomes from SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING? What's happening? pic.twitter.com/5dFCTyOzj8
