Sony’s Spider-Man Universe continues with Morbius, which introduces Marvel’s Living Vampire. After Morbius, this is the following film.
Sony’s Spider-Man Universe will continue to create films after Jared Leto’s heroic debut in Morbius, and the next one is already in the works.
On April 1, Marvel Comics’ Living Vampire, Dr. Michael Morbius, is introduced in the film. According to critics,
Morbius was lacking in cohesion and structure and ultimately failed to live up to its promise. But Sony already has a bunch of movies lined up to follow up on the success of its most recent superhero offering.
Sony’s Spider-Man Universe, which centers on the Spider-Man characters, has a third entry in the form of Morbius. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was originally intended to serve as a launchpad for a series of films focusing on Spider-archenemies. Man’s However, Marc Webb’s sequel was a critical and commercial failure,
so those plans were scrapped. In order to allow Spider-Man to join the MCU, Sony cooperated with Marvel to create a shared universe, starting with Venom. Despite the mixed reviews, Venom was a box office hit, prompting sequels and additional films set in the Spider-Man universe.
Kraven the Hunter, the next film in the Spider-Man world, will be released on January 13th, 2023. As the titular big-game hunter, Aaron Taylor-Johnson stars in this J.C. Chandor-directed picture. However, after watching early footage of Taylor-Johnson in the 2022 film Bullet Train, Sony executives promptly cast him instead of other actors such as Keanu Reeves, John David Washington, and Adam Driver.
Christopher Abbott, Alessandro Nivola, Russell Crowe, Fred Hechinger, and Ariana DeBose round out the group already revealed.
For Sony’s Spider-Man Universe, there is still a lot of room for growth. Madame Web will be written by Morbius’ Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless. It is expected that Dakota Johnson will play the main character alongside Sydney Sweeney (who has been rumored to play Black Cat),
who is also expected to appear?
On top of that, after being shelved for several years, talk of a Sinister Six-based film has returned.
In Morbius’ post-credits scene, Vulture is taken to another reality and Morbius suggests a team-up. Since Tom Hardy has signed a three-picture deal with Sony and Andy Serkis has expressed interest in returning to the helm, a third Venom movie is also likely to happen.
Before Kraven Hunter’s standalone film was announced, he was already being considered as a foe for Spider-Tom Man’s Holland. The director of Spider-Man: No Way Home, Jon Watts, planned to include Kraven in his next film even before it was formally announced in 2019.
In the end, the multiverse concept won out over this proposal. It is still possible that Kraven the Hunter will be delayed like Morbius, but the comic book version of the character is now scheduled for publication.
