Regardless of being set in Sony’s Spider-Man Universe, Morbius is generally self-contained, however the titular Dwelling Vampire does name-drop Venom in the course of the 2022 movie. Jared Leto debuted as Physician Michael Morbius, the second Spider-Man villain to obtain a solo movie within the rising Sony Spider-Man Universe, following the releases of Venom in 2018 and Venom: Let There Be Carnage in 2021. Whereas Sony’s route for his or her new shared universe is unclear, with 2023’s Kraven the Hunter set to confuse issues even additional, Morbius’ reference to the symbiote Venom does assist to attach these two vastly completely different tasks.


Marvel Comics’ Morbius has by no means been as common a personality as Venom, however Sony’s makes an attempt to carry smaller-scale villains from Spider-Man’s rogues gallery into their live-action franchise meant that Morbius might need been the right alternative. Akin to Eddie Brock, a.okay.a. Venom, Morbius was reworked as an antihero for his big-screen debut, which noticed him battle the similarly-afflicted Milo Morbius, portrayed by Physician Who’s Matt Smith. Whereas there may be at present no model of Peter Parker in Sony’s Spider-Man Universe to attach these tasks, small Easter eggs and teases are bridging the gaps, permitting a shared universe to develop organically.

Morbius’ “I Am Venom” Line References In-Universe Occasions

Morbius takes place within the Sony Spider-Man Universe (SSU), which is confirmed in the course of the movie, as Morbius assaults a bunch of cash counterfeiters to take over their lab, threatening one by saying, “I’m Venom.” In a second when Morbius is making an attempt to carry on to his humanity, he chooses to frighten the criminals as a substitute of hurt them, utilizing Venom as his alias. This scene not solely proves that Venom and Morbius happen in the identical universe but in addition references Eddie Brock and Venom’s actions in San Francisco, which have made them fugitives by the top of Let There Be Carnage.

The place Was Venom Throughout The Occasions Of Morbius?

Regardless of Morbius not making it clear when the occasions of the movie happen within the SSU, it does set up that the occasions of Venom have already occurred, as Rodriguez and Stroud point out “that mess in San Francisco,” the setting for Venom and its sequel. The ending of Venom: Let There Be Carnage sees Eddie Brock and Venom transported into the Marvel Cinematic Universe for Spider-Man: No Method Residence, and if Morbius’ complicated post-credits scene is to be believed, the ending of Morbius and No Method Residence ought to line up completely. Which means Eddie Brock and Venom have been on Earth-616, the MCU’s principal actuality, in the course of the occasions of Morbius.

Someway – in a approach that has but to be defined – Michael Keaton’s Adrian Toomes, a.okay.a. the Vulture, from the MCU’s Spider-Man: Homecoming was transported into the SSU on the finish of Spider-Man: No Method Residence. His look in Morbius’ post-credits scene might need made little or no sense however did set up a tease for the SSU’s Sinister Six, which could possibly be a good way to tie collectively the otherwise-disconnected tasks within the franchise up to now. After the massively detrimental reception to Morbius, nonetheless, it is unclear whether or not the character will present up within the SSU’s future, so Morbius and Venom may by no means really get the prospect to fulfill.
