New Morbius Trailer has Easter Egg for Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man

Morbius is admittedly one of the more obscure villains when it comes to Spider-Man lore, so you can bet Sony wants general audiences to be aware that Spider-Man exists in the film’s universe. The first teaser actually has a photo of Spider-Man in the background, and it’s actually a reference to Sam Raimi’s trilogy of Spidey movies.

As some people have pointed out before, the image of Spider-Man in the film is actually lifted straight from the PS4 video game. What’s more, it’s wearing the skin for Tobey Maguire’s Spider-Man:

We don’t know what this means for the movie ultimately, and personally, I don’t want to read much into it.  I think someone in the production team just needed a photo of Spider-Man for the film, and that was one of the first that they found online. If it was deliberate, then I think it’s a cool nod to the PS4 video game and the Raimi trilogy; more of a “two birds one stone” Easter Egg.

If anything, the movie still has a lot of time to change the poster, seeing as some people have been calling Sony out for being “lazy” by using the image. I mean, if they can fix Sonic the Hedgehog, they can do something about a poster that probably only appears in the film for less than a minute.

One of Marvel’s most compelling and conflicted characters comes to the big screen as Oscar winner Jared Leto transforms into the enigmatic antihero, Michael Morbius. Dangerously ill with a rare blood disorder, and determined to save others suffering his same fate, Dr. Morbius attempts a desperate gamble. What at first appears to be a radical success soon reveals itself to be a remedy potentially worse than the disease.

Catch Morbius when it hits theaters July 31.
