Morbius does not escape tradition, the film with Jared Leto is entitled to two post-credits scenes. You didn’t understand everything? We explain to you.
Viewers are getting used to it. At Marvel, we do not hesitate to play the extensions and after the credits, we often have to sit in the dark to hope to discover the famous post-credits scenes.
In the MCU, rare are the films to be deprived of it, alone End of Game was not entitled to this preferential treatment. It must be said that the feature film was intended to close a vast chapter for the license, so there is nothing surprising about it.
At Sony, too, we are entitled to this kind of little surprises, and Morbius gratifies us with two post-generic sequences. Rather enigmatic scenes for those who have not seen the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe, but rather meaningful for aficionados. So here’s everything to remember from the post-credits scenes of Morbius?
The Vulture is back to play tricks
Main antagonist of Spider-Man: Homecomingthe Vulture camped by Michael Keaton had since been discreet. After being taken out of harm’s way in Tom Holland’s first solo adventure in Peter Parker, he was obviously spending a few days in the shade.
While Spider-Man’s post-credits scene had us thinking he was already planning his escape, the multiverse has arguably picked up the pace. Adrian Toomes lands in the Morbius reality, intent on tackling the spider again.
In addition to allowing Michael Keaton to put on the costume again, this sequence also has the merit of situating Morbius in the vast timeline of the MCU. The plot obviously takes place some time before the events of Spider-Man: No Coming Home.
The scene also confirms to us that Morbius almost officially integrates the MCU, like Venom who entered it at the end of No coming home.
With the exception of Spider-Man, the superheroes operated by Sony Pictures have so far never met the Disney characters. Captain America, Iron Man or even Black WidowMarvel and Sony have so far made it a point of honor to separate these licenses. Do not mix tea towels and napkins.
However, the introduction of the Vulture in Morbius redistributes the cards, we are not immune to a crossover in the coming years. Especially since the character played by Jared Leto will obviously join forces with the Vulture to destroy the friendly neighborhood spider.
Well, we have to tell you that we did not fully understand this reversal of the situation, while the film made a point of never presenting Michael Morbius as a real antagonist. This inconsistency is undoubtedly a way for Sony to introduce one of its next projects: a reunion of the Sinister Six.
Sinister Six reporting
If you’re not familiar with Marvel comics, this name probably means nothing to you. Still, the Sinister Six are prominent members of the glossy franchise, which Sony obviously wants to exploit on the big screen. We have already met some of its members.
The Sinister Six or Sinister Six in the language of Molière, is a team of supervillains that evolves in the comics created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko. She first appears in T.he Amazing Spider-Man Annual #1 in 1964. Originally, it was Doctor Octopus who was the leader, before being replaced by many antagonists revolving around Spider-Man.
Legendary members include Vulture, Electro, Kraven, Mysterio, and Sandman. So many characters who have crossed paths with Spider-Man on the big screen and that Sony will visibly put back on the front of the stage. Venom, which was entitled to two films at Sony, also made a remarkable passage with the Sinister Six alongside Scarab and Scorpion. The latter two, on the other hand, are completely new to Marvel.
For now, Sony has not confirmed the start of such a project. We know, however, that the studio is already working on a sequel to Spider-Man, still with Tom Holland in the title role. It is hard to imagine the firm wanting to bring back all these beautiful people to face Spidey again, the operation would undoubtedly be redundant.
On the other hand, we can imagine that Sony wants to afford its suicide squada movie about endearing villains who must come together to save the world. To find out more, it will probably be necessary to wait until the release of the next Sony film in cinemas.
The date is set for January 18, 2023, with Kraven: The Hunter (another Sinister Six). Directed by JC Chandor, the feature film will feature Aaron Taylor-Johnson as Sergei Kravinoff. The actor is no stranger to the Marvel universe having played Quicksilver in Avengers: Age of Ultron.
