Tom Holland wants his MCU character to fight Morbius: “Spider-Man versus a vampire”

Tom Holland wants his MCU character to fight Morbius: “Spider-Man versus a vampire”

From facing off against Vulture to Thanos, Tom Holland’s Spider-Man has fought against several antagonists from Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, the Spider-Man: No Way Home star still has another supervillain in mind, one he’d like to fight from Sony’s shared Marvel Universe and that’s none other than Jared Leto’s Morbius.

Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios’ upcoming Spider-Man: No Way Home is already set to pit Holland’s friendly neighborhood superhero at odds with a roaster of Marvel villains from past Spider-Man universes. But besides fighting Willem Dafoe’s Green Goblin, Alfred Molina’s Dr. Otto Octavius, Jamie Foxx’s Electro , Rhys Ifans’ Lizard and Thomas Haden Church‘s Sandman – Holland hopes to face off Marvel’s vampire as well.

During a Q&A session with Rotten Tomatoes, Holland revealed a sleeve of villains he’s faced since appearing in a standalone Spider-Man film and stated:

“That’s tricky. I think the Vulture is going to be in there because he’s my first and that was cool. I think Jake’s [Gyllenhaal, Mysterio] got to be in there because he’s my love. And I think Willem, the fight scenes that we have with Willem are crazy and so scary that it really was awesome to like, explore different kinds of Spider-Man action,” Holland said before moving on to who he’d like to take on next. “I actually think the Morbius film looks really cool. And it’s more scary, that film. I think it could be quite a cool thing… Spider-Man versus a vampire.”

Holland’s choice of interest is particularly interesting with the multiverse narrative taking over MCU Phase 4. Venom: Let There Be Carnage post-credits scene previously hinted at the Lethal Protector’s arrival to the Marvel Studios’ established universe. So there’s no question Sony is steadily building up the stage for Venom vs. Spider-Man showdown. Meanwhile, Leto has also hinted at the possibility of his Morbius’ role in the multiverse eventually leading up to the Sinister Six.

“If you’ve seen the last Spider-Man: No Way Home trailer, you know the multiverse has officially opened,” Leto said in a video address at CCXP in Brazil last week. “There’s all kinds of opportunities for villains to meet up and maybe nurture their more sinister intents.”

Let’s hope there’s more to uncover in the upcoming Spider-Man: No Way Home when it arrives in theaters on December 17. While Morbius has a release date slated for January 20, 2022.
