Morbius director confirms leaks and the universe it is set in

Fans were surprised when leaks spread online about cuts to trailer scenes, after the press saw screenings, as well as a new fan screening in London on March 24.

In a new CinemaBlend interview, released very early to the public, Daniel Espinosa; the director for Morbius, has finally confirmed which universe the movie is set in.

“Morbius lives in the same universe as Venom. This is the universe we saw Venom exit at the end of VENOM: LET THERE BE CARNAGE and return to at the end of SPIDER-MAN: NO WAY HOME.”

After all of this confusion surrounding the trailers for 2 years, showing references to many universes. Morbius is finally set in the Venom-verse. The storyline takes place between Venom Let There Be Carnage and Spider-Man No Way Home.

Daniel also confirms the credit scene details that were leaked about Michael Keaton’s Vulture being kept only for the credits, appearing in the cells after being transported from the MCU to the Venom-verse.

“… The events of NO WAY HOME had the effect of transferring Venom and Vulture (and maybe others ) back and forth between the MCU and the Venom Universe.”

In a second credit scene, Vulture appears in a new suit, recruiting Morbius for a team-up to seek revenge on Spider-Man.

“If you look closely, you will see it is not quite the same suit as Homecoming. He is a resourceful guy… Well, he is recruiting teammates and he has enticed one already. So it sure looks like a start.”
