MORBIUS Reshoots Reportedly Talking Place To Include More Of Michael Keaton's Adrian Toomes/Vulture
After Michael Keaton recently revealed that he was heading back to shoot some new Adrian Toomes content, it's come to light that those scenes aren't for Spider-Man: No Way Home. Read on for details...
A recent talk show appearance saw Michael Keaton reveal he was getting ready to shoot something Vulture-related for an undisclosed upcoming Marvel movie, with the only possibilities being a change to his role in Morbius or something for Spider-Man: No Way Home (which we know currently isn't quite finished ahead of the world premiere next Monday).
The latter is certainly a possibility when we're anticipating a sixth member of that sinister cabal of villains, but Murphy's Multiverse reports that the additional photography is, in fact, for Morbius.
"While I have yet to hear Keaton’s name attached to Spider-Man: No Way Home, we can exclusively reveal that his work on his role in Morbius is still ongoing with just 7 weeks until release," the site reveals. "Though we don’t have details on whether Keaton was working on reshoots or additional photography, the work isn’t done quite yet as scenes with the character will be filmed next week."
It appears Keaton's role is being expanded on or changed in some way, perhaps in response to how things play out in Spider-Man: No Way Home. After all, it appears Morbius takes place on a world unrelated to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, so if that's somehow being merged with Sony's Spider-Man Universe or this Adrian Toomes is a Variant, it will obviously need to be addressed.
The first trailer for Morbius revealed Toomes' return after menacing the wall-crawler in Spider-Man: Homecoming, and he appears to still be behind bars. How that leads to him crossing paths with the Living Vampire is hard to say, but perhaps it's leading to something much bigger down the line, eh?
Spider-Man: No Way Home arrives in U.S. on December 17 and in the UK on December 15.
