It's Time To Talk About The Future Of Sony's Spider-Man Universe
By EAMMON JACOBS
the Sony Spider-Man Universe consists of “Venom,” its sequel “Let There Be Carnage,” and now “Morbius.” this grungy universe is rough around the edges, as recently, Jared Leto's "Morbius" earned itself a dire 16% critic rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
Although "Morbius" hasn't been well received, there’s a solid idea underneath the muddled storyline. Michael Morbius grapples with his own terminal blood disorder, but the cure he creates comes with the devastating consequence of becoming a vampire. Fate's a fickle thing.
Sony's desire to rush a "Sinister Six" movie has been built by the post-credits scenes, already wedgeing Michael Keaton's Vulture into this universe. This occurs when he is transported into the Venom-verse as a result of Doctor Strange's spell at the end of "Spider-Man: No Way Home."
It's always great to see Keaton on the big screen — and hopefully he'll get to add new layers to Vulture in future appearances. But let's face it, recruiting the "Beetlejuice" and "Batman" star for this universe should be a much bigger deal than it is right now.
It's still not clear whether Spidey exists in Sony's universe, although Vulture briefly references his Spider-Man in the post-credits, but that's the only mention of the wallcrawler. Let's hope "Kraven the Hunter" and "Madame Web" push Sony's Spider-Man universe to greater heights.
