Sony has not yet officially announced Morbius 2, and to be quite honest, it doesn’t seem likely. Despite a strong opening weekend, Morbius struggled at the box office, earning just $167.5 million globally. Even a re-release (after it became the topic of several memes) wasn’t enough to salvage the film.
Matt Smith handled the film’s poor result with relative calm. “It’s a film, at the end of the day, we’re not saving lives. For whatever reason, it didn’t quite work out and… It is what it is,” he said in August 2022.
The first film undoubtedly has signs of a follow-up, and we’re not just talking about the possibilities for a Spider-Man crossover. Of course, if Sony wants a sequel, it may still happen.
So here is all the information you want for a prospective Morbius 2
Morbius 2 Release date
There is no official release date as of yet because Morbius 2 has not yet been announced, as was already noted.
It’s difficult to see where the sequel can fit in right now because Sony has a busy two years ahead of it with its Marvel projects, starting on June 2, 2023, with Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse.
Kraven the Hunter, another Spider-Man spin-off, is scheduled to release on October 6, 2023. El Muerto, Madame Web, and subsequently Kraven the Hunter are all scheduled to release on different dates in 2024. A confirmed but updated Venom 3 is also on the way.
Even if it were verified, it seems likely that we would have to wait until at least 2024 for the release of Morbius 2. But if we learn anything, we’ll update this.
Morbius 2 Cast
There haven’t been any official casting announcements for Morbius 2 because the sequel hasn’t been confirmed, but we feel secure in predicting that Jared Leto will return as Dr Michael Morbius.
Adria Arjona, who plays Martine Bancroft, who has been turned into a vampire, is likely to accompany him (more on that in a bit). However, Jared Harris’ Dr Nicholas and Matt Smith’s Milo won’t be coming back because they were both legitimately slain in Morbius.
We would anticipate seeing Tyrese Gibson’s Simon Stroud, who is a well-known adversary of Morbius in the comics, as well as Al Madrigal, who plays Stroud’s FBI colleague Alberto Rodriguez, returning. Gibson claims that Stroud has a three-movie agreement, so he may appear in other films.
Adrian Toomes, played by Michael Keaton, made an appearance in Morbius’ credit sequences, thus assuming he isn’t returned to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, he will probably stick around for the follow-up. Toomes suggests a partnership with Morbius, which creates opportunities for the Sinister Six.
Could Morbius link up with (or face off against) characters like Tom Holland’s Spider-Man or Tom Hardy’s Venom in a sequel? Anything is technically possible, but whether it really occurs is up in the air.
Daniel Espinosa, the film’s director, remains coy about which Spider-Man specifically inhabits this reality, leaving fans to speculate that it may be Andrew Garfield’s Spider-Man.
“There are people at Sony that will have me a shot because then I will force them to commit to something,” he joked to IGN. “I have my thoughts and opinions and they are in the movie, and that’s what I’m pushing for.”
He has stated that there is a Spider-Man in this world, and because Tom Holland’s Spidey is still a part of the MCU, anybody might be him.
Morbius Ending Explained and Predictions for Morbius 2
Bancroft’s “death” and Vulture’s hint at the Sinister Six are two major narrative lines that Morbius 2 may continue. Martine will be our first stop. Martine is taken hostage by Milo in order to draw Morbius into a duel with him. Just as Morbius is about to arrive, Milo kills Martine in order to leave her for him to discover.
Morbius drinks from Martine, therefore we suppose it’s it for her after that in order to have her death “mean something.” We cut back to the rooftop where Martine’s body is located after Morbius beats Milo and kills him with the antibody he developed, and we then see Martine opening her eyes.
Whatever vampire Martine has become—and it’s unclear which—it portends disaster for the relationship since in the comics, Martine meets a terrible end when Morbius has murdered her to prevent her from biting Spider-Man.
Although Arjona is eager to see what lies ahead for her character, she is unsure of what the future may bring.
The second significant narrative aspect that was unresolved is now. Vulture tells Morbius in the credits that “a number of us men should band together.” We believe he has more sinister intentions than the Sinister Six when he suggests they “do some good.”
No other well-known villains or antiheroes make an appearance in Morbius, unlike Tom Hardy’s Venom or Michael Mando’s Scorpion. It implies that we are unsure of which people will make up the villainous squad in this realm.
Expect additional crossovers in a future Morbius 2 given the success of the first film and the upcoming release of Kraven the Hunter in his own film. Instead of being a direct sequel to Morbius, it could wind up being more of a team-up film like Captain America: Civil War.
Morbius 2 Trailer
Obviously not. As previously said, Morbius 2 has not yet been confirmed, therefore production has not yet begun and any new footage will be far in the future.
