Despite its abysmal reception and pathetic box-office performance, Morbius is one of the most discussed blockbusters for a slew of strange reasons.
The first Spider-Man Universe film without Tom Hardy’s Venom to rely on was a disaster, with director Daniel Espinosa trying his best to make sense of the illogical narrative decisions after additional filming wrecked his initial vision for the Living Vampire’s debut.
Despite this, Morbius has become an internet phenomenon, with fans demanding a sequel to what they’ve dubbed the greatest superhero tale of all time with dangerously dripping sarcasm.
The two post-credits sequences are widely regarded as some of the worst stingers in superhero cinema, but a viral tweet indicates that Sony is still tinkering with the end product, deleting allusions to Spider-Man in the process.
More weird #Morbius news.
In the (stupid) mid-credits scene, Vulture flies up to Morbius, thanks him for meeting w/ him, & says “it has something to do with Spider-Man”.

With the character-sharing agreement yielding the highs of the MCU’s Spider-Man trilogy, before the multiverse was immediately bastardized by Morbius, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige must be perplexed as to what is going on at Sony headquarters.
Sony’s handling of its Marvel properties has never exactly been defined by rhyme and/or reason, so we can’t rule out a supernatural superhero given his own multi-film series from happening.
