Morbius is another attempt of the Sony Television to build the Spider-Man villains Universe. Yes, it’s going to be all villains without Spider-Man. The film’s lead Morbius will be a human-vampire hybrid, played by Jared Leto.
The last superhero appearance of Jared Leto in the Suicide Squad as The Joker was an actual disaster. We hope that it is going to do well after his last disastrous run.
Release Date: July 31, 2020
Another Marvel Comics film that will be coming this year is Venom. So it is the sequel of 2018 hit film where Tom Hardy will be returning as Venom. Just like Mobius, Venom is a weird take of Sony to create a complete villain universe without the superhero.
So an investigative journalist, an alien symbiote’s host who instil in him some super-human abilities and an alter-ego, a violent one. While the first part was extremely campy and funny, there are some chances for the next instalment to pull up.

We are definitely going to miss Ben Affleck in his Batman avatar as he previously made it clear that he won’t be jumping into the Batmobile again, but we have a young Batman on the rise. Yes, Robert Pattinson is ready to star as a younger Bruce Wayne. This will give the film more scope to dig into the plot that wasn’t covered before and shown on the big screen.
We are excited to see Robert in the black batsuit, and hope that the film won’t get much postponed due to the Corona pandemic.
Release Date: June 25, 2021
