New ‘Morbius’ trailer reveals even deeper ties to Sony’s corner of the MCU

Morbius may not be well known to non-comic readers, but he will be an integral part of Sony’s Spider-Verse

On Tuesday, Sony released a new trailer for their upcoming Morbius movie. Much of the footage was already shown in the teaser from last year, but there’s definitely some new stuff to dissect, as well.

Just like before, we see Michael Keaton (presumably reprising his role as Adrian Toomes) along with a shot of Michael Morbius walking by a graffitied poster of Spider-Man, which reference the fallout from Spider-Man: Far From Home.

We also hear a detective mention “that thing in San Francisco,” which is obviously a reference to Venom. In case that was too subtle for you, however, the trailer’s closing shot features Morbius mock declaring “I am Venom” to a criminal he’s just incapacitated.

There were other references that you might have missed, though. Two shots of the city skyline building feature Oscorp Tower and Horizon Labs.

Also, if you freeze frame on the shot featuring the Daily Bugle (an easter egg in and of itself), you’ll notice headlines at the top referencing Black Cat and Rhino.

Before we all get too excited, it’s worth pointing out that Morbius was supposed to be released in July 2020–well before any multiverse craziness from Spider-Man: No Way Home was scheduled to occur. There obviously could’ve been reshoots since then, but it’s still unlikely that the film will lean too hard into crossover territory.

As for the trailer itself, it’s surprisingly good. I’m a huge Spider-Man fan, but Morbius has never appealed to me much. This looked good enough that I’m actually somewhat excited about seeing the movie now.

Morbius is set to hit theaters on January 28, 2022.
