For the moment, Morbius is not a supervillain with a lot of luck, if not a bite: his film was delayed five times due to the COVID-19 crisis and the latest postponement dates back only a few days. While the feature film was slated for the end of the month, this is now its publication scheduled for April 1, 2023.
But for some fans, nothing to worry about since Sony would take the opportunity to do reshoots and include a very particular Spider-Man: that of Andrew Garfield.
This time, the hallway noise does not come from more or less dubious shooting photos but from a big theory that is starting to gain momentum on the web, based on many clues disseminated in the trailers : first of all, in one of the trailers, we can see Michael Morbius (played by Jared Leto) walk past a poster of a Spider-Man, tagged with a “murderer” (“Murderer”, in French).

If we know that Spider-Man is not the type to take the life, the confidence of Andrew Garfield’s Peter Parker in No Way Home, facing his namesake played by Tom Holland, something to think about : he explains to the latter that after the death of Gwen Stacy, he let himself be overwhelmed by a total hatred and could not hold back his blows. Would he have killed one or more of the enemies, thus angering New Yorkers?
The other intriguing trace of The Amazing-Spider-Man saga, it is the Oscorp tower seen in the Morbius trailer: it bears the exact same logo as the one in the films with Andrew Garfield. Suffice to say that the connection is striking for many, who then begin to seriously think that the universes are indeed linked.
This great hypothesis obviously follows another, even bigger one: according to some knowledgeable people, The idea of The Amazing Spider-Man 3 is said to be on its way to the executives of Sony Pictures after the insistent complaint of the fans. The return of Andrew Garfield’s character and his treatment in No Way Home would have sparked enough excitement for the general public to deliberately want a new movie and give the franchise a second chance …
Obviously, the whole is to be taken with a grain of salt but if we can be sure of one thing, it is that the concept of the multiverse completely formalized and now well installed makes it possible to do anything and everything, at the risk of becoming a gigantic labyrinth and mixing universes and licenses. Including Garfield in Morbius would effectively pave the way for a potential The Amazing Spider-Man 3.
As a result, anything can happen as long as the companies that own the rights to a particular character come to an agreement … and in this case, it’s Sony that owns all versions of Spider-Man, and he can do whatever he wants with it.
