Is Andrew Garfield in the Morbius Universe?
With the upcoming release of the highly anticipated film Morbius, fans are buzzing with excitement and speculation. One question that keeps popping up is whether Andrew Garfield, who portrayed Spider-Man in the previous The Amazing Spider-Man films, will make an appearance in the Morbius universe. Let’s dive into the details and explore this intriguing possibility.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU)
To understand the potential involvement of Andrew Garfield’s Spider-Man in the Morbius universe, we must first delve into Marvel’s larger cinematic landscape. The MCU, which includes films featuring Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, and other beloved characters, has captivated audiences worldwide.
In 2015, Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios struck a deal to integrate Spider-Man into the MCU. This collaboration allowed Tom Holland to portray Spider-Man within the established MCU continuity. However, at that time, it was made clear that previous iterations of Spider-Man, including those played by Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire, were not part of this shared universe.
The Sony Pictures Universe of Marvel Characters (SPUMC)
Sony Pictures owns the rights to many Marvel characters beyond just Spider-Man. In recent years, they have been building their own cinematic universe known as the SPUMC. This universe includes films like Venom, Morbius, and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.
While it is tempting to imagine an epic crossover between these universes and see Andrew Garfield’s Spider-Man alongside Tom Holland’s version or even Tobey Maguire’s from Sam Raimi’s trilogy, there is currently no official confirmation of such a crossover happening.
The Possibility of an Andrew Garfield Cameo
That being said, rumors and speculation continue to swirl regarding Andrew Garfield’s involvement in the SPUMC. Some reports suggest that he may indeed make a surprise cameo appearance in Morbius or other films within this universe.
If these rumors prove true, it could open up exciting possibilities for crossovers and multiverse storytelling. The concept of multiple Spider-Men from different dimensions coming together has already been explored in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, which received critical acclaim.
While fans eagerly await the release of Morbius, and the future development of the SPUMC, it remains unclear whether Andrew Garfield will reprise his role as Spider-Man. The possibility of a crossover between different Spider-Men is undoubtedly an enticing prospect, but until we receive official confirmation, we can only speculate and hope for the best.
In the meantime, let’s enjoy the incredible performances by Tom Holland as Spider-Man in the MCU and Jared Leto as Morbius in Sony’s SPUMC. Whether or not Andrew Garfield joins them on-screen, there is no shortage of superhero excitement in store for fans!
