MORBIUS Star Jared Leto Teases Ramifications Of The Multiverse And A Future Sinister Team-Up
Talking in a video shared during Sony's CCXP panel over the weekend, Morbius star Jared Leto teased the fallout from Spider-Man: No Way Home and how that could lead to a "sinister" team-up down the line.
While we're still hoping the Sinister Six somehow factors into Spider-Man: No Way Home, it's beginning to look like Tom Holland's Peter Parker will only face five villains in the movie.
Why? We'd bet on Sony Pictures saving the Sinister Six for their own movie somewhere down the line (that or Spider-Man 6). Regardless, Morbius star Jared Leto has again hinted at the group's eventual introduction during a recent promo for the movie shared during the weekend's CCXP event.
"In the film version of Morbius we're bringing to you now, he's also part of a much larger universe," the Oscar-winner teases in the video below. "If you've seen the latest Spider-Man: No Way Home trailer, you know, the Multiverse has officially opened. There [are] all kinds of opportunities for villains to meet up, thrive, and maybe even nurture their more sinister intents."
It appears that Spider-Man: Homecoming villain Adrian Toomes (a.k.a. The Vulture) is somehow pulled into Sony's Spider-Man Universe following the events of No Way Home, and that could be what leads to the criminal crossing paths with the Living Vampire. Another possibility, of course, is that this Toomes is a Variant, though we're not sure how Sony would go about explaining that.
Morbius is set to be released in theaters (finally) on January 28, 2022.
