Morbius is the latest Spider-Man spin-off to hit theaters after the Venom sequel.
Leto plays the Marvel anti-hero in Sony’s new film, which also stars Matt Smith. He is savaged by the critics.
As has become the norm with superhero movies, there’s a post-credits sting – however, in an interview published ahead of the film’s release, director Daniel Espinosa revealed exactly what happened in the scene.
Those who have now gone to the cinema to see it are calling out Espinosa for spoiling the film’s surprises before giving some fans a chance to watch it.
Others are expressing confusion about the possibility of some character return and how it fits into the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).
*Spoilers follow – you have been warned*
The post-credits scene sees the return of Adrian Toomes AKA Vulture, who was played by Michael Keaton in Spider-Man: Homecoming. He is transported to this world via the multiverse thanks to the spell performed by Doctor Strange at the end of Spider-Man: No Coming Home.
However, this was confirmed by Espinosa on March 25 in an interview with cinema mixspoiling the scene for many.
In a new interview with VarietyEspinosa said of Toomes’ return: “The events of No coming home had the effect of transferring Venom and Vulture (and possibly others) back and forth between the MCU and the Venom universe.
Toomes shows up in a jail cell and seems confused about what just happened. Confusingly, he wears a lab coat similar to the one seen in Homecoming, which has fans wondering how it could be. In response to this, Espinosa said, “If you look closely, you’ll see it’s not quite the same costume as Back home. He’s a resourceful guy. »
Another scene sees Toomes recruiting Morbius, leading many to believe that a Sinister Six team is in the works. The next Spider-Man villain to get his standalone Sony movie will be Kraven, played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson.
Fans are only now finding out about Espinosa’s spoiler-filled interview – and are expressing their shock after finding out it was shared an entire week before the film was released.
