Morbius Director Blames Sony For Awful Post-Credits Scenes


Marvel’s Morbius has just been released in cinemas worldwide (I believe it’s available to watch in cinemas in most territories around the globe), and its director, Daniel Espinosa, has already called out Sony Pictures regarding those two post-credits scenes.

Espinosa was asked in a recent interview where the idea for those two post-credits scenes came from, and he revealed that it was all Sony’s doing.

He specified that “the idea of moving between worlds” was “invented by Sony, not by the MCU”.

However, that’s not all he had to say on the matter.

Espinosa went on to add that he “had to adjust” to what Sony Pictures wanted him to do on Morbius, and especially with regards to these post-credits scenes.

The idea of moving between worlds was invented by Sony, not by the MCU. They did it and then I had to adjust. That’s the thing with the Marvel universe, in the comic books it’s always expanding. There are rules you’re slowly setting up together, but the creators are different. The whole idea of the Marvel universe is you have to create the collaboration so they function together. If you have Chris Claremont who’s working on X-Men and he spoke to Steve Ditko, there are clearly different perspectives, and if J. Michael Straczynski gets involved, they have to collaborate to make those rules.

Morbius’ two post-credits scenes were all Sony’s idea!

I will go into Morbius’ post-credits scene in an upcoming article.

However, what I will say is that I did not understand who on this Earth ever thought that those two post-credits scenes were a good idea.

They made no sense – literally zero sense – and kind of spoiled much of the movie for me personally.

I’m sure there are people out there who liked these two extra scenes at the end of Morbius.

That’s fine. I just thought they were badly thought out and poorly executed.

Anyway, what do you make of this news?

Have you watched Morbius yet in the cinema?

If so, what did you make of the movie and these post-credits scenes?
