FandomWire sources have revealed that Sony’s upcoming Morbius film will be set in the MCU.
One connection that will bring Morbius into the greater narrative of Marvel Studio’s cinematic universe is J. Jonah Jameson, played by J. K. Simmons. He isn’t portraying the Raimi version of the character but the MCU one.
With Tom Holland also set to make an appearance in Venom 2, it is clear that Sony and Disney’s brand new deal has brought Sony’s own universe into Marvel Studio’s, connecting Venom in an official capacity.
There are also the upcoming Madame Webb and Black Cat & Silver Sable films which, given that Morbius and Venom 2 have been brought into the MCU, will likely connect to Holland’s Spider-Man.
It would seem, however, that the two universes will connect in a much more meaningful way than the Netflix or ABC ones ever did as Holland is going to be jumping between the two. Whether or not any of Sony’s other characters do so has yet to be seen.
Jared Leto, the actor behind the Joker in Suicide Squad, will be bringing the Living Vampire to life and he will be duking it out with Matt Smith, who played the 11th Doctor in Doctor Who, who is portraying Loxias Crown, also known as Hunger.
The film has also cast Adria Arjona, Tyrese Gibson, Jared Harris, Al Madrigal, Corey Johnson, Charlie Shotwell, and Archie Renaux. It is being directed by Daniel Espinosa who you may know for his work on Life, Safe House, Child 44 or Snabba Cash.
