Sunday afternoon, another image from the long-awaited Morbius trailer found its way online, confirming previous reports Spider-Man would be appearing in the flick in a round-about way. The image itself is a poster of the web-slinger character with "MURDERER" graffiti scrawled across it; Jared Leto's Michael Morbius can then be seen walking past it in the foreground.
Suffice to say, fans are pretty divided on the appearance. First and foremost, the image used isn't from any iteration of Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Rather, it's a still used from the ever-popular Spider-Man game on PS4. That could be for a whole number of reasons — such as the new Sony and Marvel Studios deal not being completed while Morbius is filmed.
Either way, fans quickly took to Twitter to share their thoughts on the image and we've compiled some of those here. Keep scrolling to see what Morbius and Spider-Man fans are saying!
