Editor’s observe: This story accommodates spoilers for “Morbius.”
A personality from the Marvel Cinematic Universe makes a shock look in not one however two post-credits scenes on the finish of Sony’s “Morbius.” Is it Spider-Man? Any Spider-Man? Tom Holland? Tobey Maguire? Andrew Garfield? No. But it’s somebody who is aware of Spider-Man. Michael Keaton’s Adrian Toomes, higher recognized by his supervillain moniker, the Vulture, seems out of skinny air inside a jail cell within the first post-credits scene.
The scene begins with the cracking purple sky that was seen on the finish of “Spider-Man: No Way Home.” That reference to the multiverse insanity of “No Way Home” is supposed to trace on the twisted logic behind the Vulture magically showing in a universe not his personal.
The Vulture first appeared in 2017’s “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” starring Holland, however now in “Morbius” he has jumped to the Spider-Man universe that’s protected by the one performed by Garfield.
Despite being a super-criminal within the Holland Spider-Man world, the Vulture has dedicated no crimes (but) in his new universe. And that multiverse glitch is presumably why it’s implied he’s launched from jail so he can seem within the second post-credits scene: a face-to-face assembly between the Vulture – now suited up along with his high-tech wings and helmet – and Morbius.
The chat is temporary, however the Vulture says he thinks his arrival in Morbius’s universe has one thing to do with Spider-Man (appropriate, sir), and he suggests a team-up between the 2 of them. The second comes off as a really sinister dialog. Once once more, Sony is attempting to collect up its Spider-Man dangerous guys on display and assemble them just like the Avengers to kind the comics-inspired squad referred to as the Sinister Six.
The Sinister Six have been initially a part of the large plans for Garfield’s Spider-Man universe again when he was Spider-Man, however as soon as Sony teamed up with Marvel Studios to reboot the Spider-Man movie franchise with Holland within the lead function, the plans have been scrapped.
So, right here we’re as soon as once more, two Spider-Man characters doubtlessly teaming up sooner or later, however with the prospects of Spider-Man, any Spider-Man, truly exhibiting up in that get-together extremely unlikely. And what could also be much more unlikely is the Sinister Six getting collectively in any respect.
True, Keaton and Jared Leto might proceed their Vulture/super-vampire dialog in a “Morbius” sequel. And possibly we’d see Spider-Man villains not scheduled to seem in future Holland spider-movies pop up and construct up towards the second the place the six dangerous guys are all in the identical display, maybe with Morbius or the Vulture main the best way.
But opinions and social media chatter for “Morbius” have been combined at finest, so a sequel is iffy, not to mention a Sinister Six film. The field workplace will determine if we see these two collectively once more. Not to say: Once Keaton comes again as Batman in subsequent summer season’s “The Flash” film, he could be just a little too busy in Gotham City.
