In these references, not only are characters like Spider-Man mentioned, there are also references to Marvel and Sony film sagas, as well as one or another surprise.
Without further ado, let’s discover the easter eggs and references that the plot of Morbius left us.
The mutants present?
After young Michael Morbius, during his teenage years in Greece, repairs a hemodialysis machine with the spring of a ballpoint pen, Doctor Nicholas saw potential in Michael, seeking to send him to New York to a school for gifted children.
There is no doubt that every good fan of The House of Ideas immediately thought of the X-Men, characters who will return to the big screen in the medium term, now at the hands of Marvel Studios.
Once Morbius grew up and became a doctor, he began to conduct his research at Horizon Labs, a place that has its history in the Marvel Universe, thanks to Dan Slott’s run in The Amazing Spider-Man.
Horizon Labs’ first appearance was in The Amazing Spider-Man #648. Both Peter Parker and Michael Morbius have worked in these laboratories, when he cured people who became arachnids after the events of Spider-Island.
Kraven on stage?
Morbius’ great friend and patron, Lucien, is home on hemodialysis when Morbius arrives at the millionaire’s house. Morbius is surprised by the presence of a strict bodyguard, to which Lucien explains that he hired him after an encounter with a Russian gentleman.
This reference would indicate the presence of Kraven the Hunter, a villain who will debut on the big screen in 2023 with Aaron Taylor-Johnson as his protagonist.
An aquatic tribute to Nosferatu
To avoid problems with the Morbius law, he tests his serum on a ship that sails in international waters, which is called Murnau, in homage to the director FW Murnau, who in 1922 filmed Nosferatu, the first vampire movie in history.
Morbius jokes with Martina by mentioning that he hoped to become a version of Dracula, a character who lives in the Marvel Universe, and who has sworn war with Blade and the Avengers.
Old acquaintances appear in the Daily Bugle
The Daily Bugle becomes the quintessential information medium for New Yorkers, and in its pages it gives us Easter eggs of three old acquaintances of Spidey who are already around the big screen, in addition to Morbius.
In one of the Morbius trailers, the Daily Bugle gave an account of the actions of Rhino and Black Cat, while in another edition the newspaper reports on “Chameleon’s great escape”, which would give rise to the presence of Kraven’s brother .
The Hulk Tribute
Following the massacre at the Murnau and the murder of Nurse Sutton at the Horizon Labs facility, Michael Morbius is framed in both cases, for which the police arrest him and send him to a detention center in Manhattan.
When the officers handling the case begin to question Morbius, the doctor begins to have problems for not having blood, so Morbius tells the agents “They won’t like me when I’m hungry”, one of the easter eggs that we get. harkens back to the 1970s series of The Incredible Hulk.
I am Venom
When Michael Morbius finds a lab where criminals counterfeit money, the doctor seeks to set up a workplace to find a solution to Lucien’s vampirism, so the thugs put up a fight.
Morbius begins to defeat them and the last mobster Morbius faces breaks the bones in his hands, to which the criminal asks Morbius who he was, and the doctor replied “I am Venom”, just like Eddie Brock in the end from the first tape.
Martina Bancroft becomes a vampire
To stop Lucien, Morbius drained Martina Bancroft’s blood and he transferred some of his blood to her, turning Martina into a vampire at the end of the plot, in a scene that has its background in the 1970s.
In the comics, Martina Bancroft is given to the vampires who sought to frame Morbius in the search for the true vampire. Unfortunately in the comics Morbius kills Martina to take her soul.
From the MCU to the Sony Universe of Spider-Man
In the first post-credits scene of the film, the multiversal rift is seen closing, and with it Adrian Toomes, whom we previously saw in Spider-Man: Homecoming, arrives in a New York cell.
Toomes in this universe does not have a criminal record, so the man behind the Vulture is released, in a case that draws media attention.
Is The Sinister Six coming?
Michael Morbius has a strange encounter with Adrian Toomes, who builds himself a new Vulture suit, and offers the living vampire an alliance to defeat Spider-Man, with the help of other “guys with his same talents”.
Morbius is interested in this offer, so the first two of the sinister six would have arrived, in a universe where Rhino, Kraven, Chameleon and another villain would arrive who could give Spidey problems.
