MORBIUS: 5 Huge Questions We've Been Left With After The Movie's Unbelievably Dumb Post-Credit Scenes

Everyone is talking about Morbius' post-credits scenes, but not for any good reasons! They're unbelievably dumb, but have still left us with some huge questions about what the hell any of it means...

Morbius is now playing in theaters, and if you're looking to waste a couple of hours of your life this weekend...go watch anything else you can find instead. As we've established, the movie isn't good on any level, but one of its most glaring flaws are two unbelievably awful and stupid post-credits scenes. 

Clearly added in a hurry after Spider-Man: No Way Home's release (and the decision to keep Tom Holland's Peter Parker in the Marvel Cinematic Universe), the stingers don't make any logical sense. As if that wasn't bad enough, they also set the stage for something we can't imagine any Marvel fans actually want to see become a reality, making them feel more like a threat than an exciting future tease.

As bad as these scenes were, we can't help but be curious about what the hell Sony was thinking. With that in mind, we've compiled some of the biggest questions they've left us with, and attempt to figure out what the plan might for this weird Marvel Universe moving forward. 

To take a look through this Morbius feature, click on the "Next" button below for more of our thoughts.
 

5. That's Not How Doctor Strange's Spell Worked, Is It?

43847384

Did we miss something here? At the end of Spider-Man: No Way Home, Doctor Strange agreed to cast a spell that would return those Variants to their respective realities and make the world forget who Peter Parker is. With that, he sent everyone home and then finished the spell while the web-slinger bid a tearful farewell to MJ and Ned.

In Morbius, Adrian Toomes - who, like the villains that were pulled into the MCU, knows Peter is Spider-Man - is pulled into the Living Vampire's reality. That's not how the spell works, and as Toomes wasn't a Variant, there's no reason he should have been taken from his world and thrown into another. That didn't happen to any of Peter's friends, the Avengers, or allies like Happy Hogan and Matt Murdock!

We're assuming that Sony wants us to believe The Vulture was inadvertently pulled into the spell because he's a villain, but if so, that's a dumb explanation that majorly contradicts No Way Home
 

4. How Did The Vulture Rebuild His Suit?

438473843

Spider-Man: No Way Home established that Toomes was able to build his Vulture costume from weaponry recovered from various battles in the MCU (such as the Chitauri attack on New York City). However, following his arrival in the Venomverse, the villain is quickly freed from prison and somehow manages to rebuild the exact same suit with a new helmet that's a little more vulture-like.

The Vulture suiting up again with no resources simply doesn't add up, though we have to concede that a retcon down the line could reveal that he has a benefactor, for example.

Similarly nonsensical, though, is the mysterious meeting Toomes orchestrates in the desert. When Morbius ends, the belief is still that the Living Vampire is a killer who has sucked the blood of countless innocents. We see no reason whatsoever why The Vulture would fancy teaming up with someone like that, especially as his time in the MCU suggested Toomes might not be all as evil as he appeared.
 

3. So, Morbius Kills People Now?

4384738432

Throughout Morbius, we're constantly reminded that Michael's bloodlust is growing steadily worse and that he'll reach a point where synthetic blood won't satisfy him. When that happens, he'll die an agonising death, with his afflictions returning along with some severe withdrawal symptoms. 

As he heads into battle against Milo, it's with a serum that will kill his former friend. Once that's done, Michael plans to use it on himself as he doesn't wish to become a true Living Vampire, feeding on people to remain healthy. Well, he kills Milo, but then flies away and eventually meets up with Toomes. So, we're guessing that means he's decided, "F*** it, I'll just kill people and stay alive for now."

With so much of the movie suggesting that Morbius would ultimately make this sacrifice, it's baffling to see that he's seemingly decided to become a bloodsucker. We're sure his next appearance could explain that Michael is still trying to cure himself or that he's found a way to hold off on drinking actual blood, but nothing about this really adds up, and it feels like lazy, inconsistent storytelling as a result. 
 

2. A Heroic Sinister Six? Really?! 

43847384323

"I'm still figuring this place out, but I think a bunch of guys like us should team-up. Could do some good." Are you f***ing kidding with this? We didn't get the Sinister Six in Spider-Man: No Way Home for reasons no one has made clear, but it's now safe to assume it was because Sony plans to put all these characters - Venom, Kraven, Morbius, etc. - in a Sinister Six movie of some sort. 

Spider-Man may or may not factor into that, but it's a dumb idea either way. These villains have all been reimagined as anti-heroes in this Marvel Universe, and The Vulture deciding to assemble them all to "do some good" leaves us scratching our heads so much that it's actually starting to hurt. 

There's no denying the prospect of seeing Venom hanging out with Morbius or The Vulture meeting Kraven the Hunter is an intriguing one, but it should be happening in a Spider-Man movie where they're actually villains, not whatever the hell this nonsense is supposed to be teasing. Sony had a bad idea for a Sinister Six movie over half a decade ago, and now looks set to return to that well.
 

1. What About Spider-Man?

438473843232

For now, it appears as if Tom Holland's Spider-Man will remain in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, safe from Avi Arad and his bonkers plans. We don't even want to think about what could have happened had Sony and Marvel Studios not agreed to continue working together, but there's no denying this new Marvel Universe needs a Spider-Man or some sort of spider-themed superhero (Spider-Woman?).

This is driven home by the second post-credits scene, though it's telling Morbius had no real reaction when The Vulture suggested his arrival in this world was connected to Spider-Man.

We're partly putting that down to the scene being a blatant product of reshoots and neither actor ever having stepped in the same frame together, but the mention of Spidey leaves us wondering if The Vulture plans to find a way to return home with some villainous friends at his side. With a better creative team in charge, that could work, but as things stand, we're concerned for the future.

Jesus christ, josh, give a break and time, mate. We have no idea how the multiverse thing is going to be, it's something they know a little, remember? So instead of thinking it makes no sense, how about you use the last brain cells you still have and think that this MAKES SENSE with what's to come? My god, and you call yourself a [frick]ing journalist

I think all this is hilarious. I’ll watch it and not hope for bad box office but the writing is on the wall. Dang I really did not expect another fantastic four to ever happen again lol

@TheWalkingCuban - I just came from wathcing the movie. Don't worry about the Fantastic Four badness. It ain't that bad. Not saying it is a great film by any means, but all this crying about how bad it is, well I didn't see it. To me, and this is just me mind you, it rates a solid C, and at various points in the film makes it to a good C+. Did I waste my time, no. Could I have waited for it to start streaming, definitely yes. As for the post credit scenes, and there are two of them. I did think Sony was trying a little too hard to be relevant with the rest of the MCU, especially after the last Spidey movie, and the upcoming Dr. Strange, and yes we could have done without them. But if anyone is expecting to see a "Inhuman" level bad movie, this isn't it. Not great, not really bad, just an OK movie.
TheWalkingCuban
TheWalkingCuban - 4/2/2022, 2:47 PM
@Mugens - a fair assessment. I said in another post, why the surprise over a S6 buildup with the Vulture? Didn’t we all expect that? It wasn’t an Oscar worthy surprise

Sony’s fascination with the Sinister Six is mind boggling. Like yes we get it The Avengers made a lot of money and you are like hey we have a group where like minded people team up to accomplish a goal they cannot on their own. But those people are villains! The reason they team up is to kill Spider-man! They are not solo movie material! They exist to do what basically No Way Home does. Create a huge epic Spider-man event movie after you’ve set them up over time in various movies. But Sony seems to want to make them into something they are not. As if the Sinister Six name in and of itself has any marketing power. Same with trying to make the sympathetic big game hunter movie. Sony has all they need to make a competent universe. They own the rights to A LOT of characters but they are likely to just blow it.

Toomes didn’t even build the suit

He did

NewNameWhoDis - 4/2/2022, 7:34 PM
@BlackBeltJones - I only came to say this also. That was my first thought. How did he get the suit without a) the chitauri attack, and b) the Tinkerer?

This movie sucked.
SonOfAGif
SonOfAGif - 4/2/2022, 7:40 PM
@NewNameWhoDis - I think No Way Home was going to be a completely different film before we got what we got. And in that process, Sony had plans for Vulture that somehow worked for the original plot of No Way Home but Marvel Studios rewrote a lot and now it screwed Sony over in terms of whatever nonsense plans they had.
Kadara
Kadara - 4/2/2022, 10:36 PM
@SonOfAGif - That would actually explain a lot things. Like for example Venom appearing only to be teleported back.

It was so much more easier to ignore SONY producing their standard underwhelming projects and cinematic garbage as long as it was completely disconnected from the greater MCU.

But with direct links to the MCU via Spider-Man; SONY is like some backwoods country-bumpkin that somehow married into an upper-class family.

They can no longer be completely ignored now. 🤨
