And, the film will probably reference Spider-Man, whereas avoiding conversing concerning the different Avengers (except completely crucial).
Considering Sony and Marvel are in a great place — winking at each other as they rake in cash for his or her respective Spidey ventures — connecting future MCU characters to Sony Spider-Man characters doesn’t appear unlikely.

If Blade seems in a mash-up, and Sony and the MCU determine to increase their relationship even additional, followers may obtain Jared Leto and Mahershala Ali go head-to-head. Why? It’s fairly easy. Blade is a vampire hunter and Morbius is a vampire. However, Morbius typically finds himself torn between his monstrous and human natures — divided in a Jekyll and Hyde sort trend.
Considering Morbius is often depicted as an internally conflicted character, he’s unlikely to be a whole villain with solely villainous motivations; which means, the MCU may additionally go for a weird partnership between the 2.
