Apparently Sony still has broader access rights to the Marvel catalog. I've stopped caring about the ins and outs of the MCU (and DCU for that matter) long ago, so I have no clue how Morbius is supposed to fit (apart some off-the-cut references to Spider-Man property), but does it actually matter? This was just another superhero flick, nothing more, nothing less.
Morbius is a genius kid who suffers from a destructive blood disease. He vows to find a cure for him and his best mate, but when he finally finds a possible solution and injects it into himself, something goes horribly wrong. Morbius tries to fight his newfound disease, but his best friend gives in to the evil.
There's a bat motive, medical experiments gone wrong and good guys battling bad guys. Oh, and a pointless love interest. Yet another origin story for a forgettable character that will be slotted into a bigger whole at some point in time. Espinosa's direction isn't too bad though and the darker setting is pretty fun, but it's wasted on an inferior character.
