Since Morbius 2 has not yet been officially confirmed by Sony, it doesn’t appear likely. Morbius underperformed at the box office, taking in just $167.5 million internationally despite a good opening weekend. Even a second release (after it was the subject of several memes) couldn’t save the movie.
Matt Smith responded to the movie’s disappointing outcome in a cool manner. In August 2022, he stated that “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,”
Morbius 2 Star 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 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.
