Morbius is performing suspiciously well at the box office despite the negative reviews. While the audience is divided, the critic is upset with the movie at large. Regardless, fans aren’t minding spending their money on the tickets. Sony is surely trying to create something like the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but it doesn’t come that easy. They are trying to milk every Spider-Man character that they have in their access. Just like any other MCU movie, Sony’s Morbius too had mid-credit and post-credit scene. This, of course, has led to some serious plotholes. Let’s take a look at them.
1. Who All Will Join The Sinister Six?
The Sinister Six is happening sooner or later, and the movie’s post-credit scene only added more credibility to it. Morbius sets up Vulture and Morbius, meanwhile, Sony is actively working on the Kraven movie starring Aaron Taylor-Johnson. On the other hand, we have Venom is very well aware of someone named Spider-Man. However, the post-credit fails to introduce the remaining members of the Sinister Six.
2. What’s Up With Vulture’s New Suit?
One of the burning questions that people are asking is related to Vulture’s new suit. Originally, in the MCU, his suit is a result of the reverse-engineered Chitauri tech, right? But it seems that the Chitauri never invaded New York in Morbius‘s universe. While Vulture is in his universe, it’s clear that he is hard at work and already making connections. However, the source of his technology remains a mystery and is surely exciting.
3. What Caused Vulture’s Timeline Jump?
After Spider-Man: No Way Home, fans can easily rely on the fact that Doctor Strange caused the Vulture to land in Morbius’ universe. But the question is, how? To theorize, we can say that Strange did not exactly know a lot about the spell. As a result, it’s not only Vulture who got shuffled between different universes there could be other MCU characters as well. The supposed misfiring of the spell could answer this major turn of events.
4. Why Is Morbius Still Alive? Is He A Killer?
The movie establishes that Morbius has a thirst for human blood. Basic fact. However, the synthetic blood kept his hunger for human blood in check for six hours, which was later reduced to four. Soon, Morbius realised that his thirst for human blood would become insatiable. To put an end to all this, he prepares two doses of toxins that would tackle the human and bat DNA in his blood. He gave on to Milo and saved the second one for himself.
However, cut to the post-credit scene which is set after some time, he is still alive. The movie once again doesn’t answer this and fans are wondering what stopped Morbius from killing himself. Second, what’s up with his thirst for human blood. Either Sony didn’t care to explain it, or it might be shown in a supposed sequel or in of his future appearances.
5. What Is Vulture’s Motivation Now?
In Spider-Man: Homecoming, Vulture explained his motivation behind his life of crime. It was only to keep his family secure. But now that he is in a different timeline, why is he still after Spidey? That’s because he blames Spider-Man for his unjustified universal jump. His motivation is still the same – family. Somewhere or the other he would have been hoping to reconcile with his wife and daughter, but that is impossible for now as they are in different universes.
6. Which Spider-Man Takes The Lead In Morbius’ Universe?
Spider-Man is the most talked-about comic book character of 2021 and 2022, up until now. No Way Home made Tobey and Andrew MCU canon and the fans loved that. But after seeing a major Spider-Man mention in Morbius, we ask ourselves, who is the Spider-Man in this universe? Considering Sony’s radical decision-making, they might just even introduce a new live-action Spider-Man. But they could also very well bring back Andrew Garfield. What do you think?
