Movie director Daniel Espinosa clarifies how the Sony Universe operates for his upcoming Morbius film.

The trailer for Morbius seems to establish the presence of Spider-Man in the movie, with a piece of art featuring the hero in the background. But fans were unsure which Spider-Man actor is referencing or it was a throwaway gag.

In a recent interview, Daniel Espinosa clarifies the Spider-Man details for his upcoming Morbius film:

Of course! I mean, in almost all Spider-Verse or, you know, the (universes) that existed in the Marvel universe, if you read the comic books, the whole idea of that kind of – the Marvel string theory, if you would call it that. It’s very related to, if you remember, the alternative Seinfelds. You have a world where you have the same characters, and it’s ALL of the characters, but they are slightly different. So in almost all verses, you have Spider-Man, or a Fantastic Four, or a Tony Stark, or a Morbius. But they will be different in tone. That’s not quite the way that the Marvel Cinematic Universe (is) approaching the idea, but they’re remaining to some core truth. Then you have the second kind of legend, which is about the totem. Which is that, in all universes, there is a spider totem. Which means that in all universes, there has to be a Spider-Man. Or a Spider-Woman.

—Daniel Espinosa, movie director

A synopsis of the film reads, “Dangerously ill with a rare blood disorder and determined to save others suffering his same fate, Dr. Morbius attempts a desperate gamble. While at first it seems to be a radical success, a darkness inside him is unleashed. Will good override evil—or will Morbius succumb to his mysterious new urges?

Morbius is directed by Daniel Espinosa and stars Jared Leto as Dr. Michael Morbius, Matt Smith, Adria Arjona, Jared Harris, Al Madrigal, and Tyrese Gibson, with a special appearance by Michael Keaton as Vulture. Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless have penned the script for Sony and Marvel Entertainment.

Morbius releases in movie theaters on April 1st, 2022.
