Morbius is set to arrive in theaters next year and will feature the fan-favorite Living Vampire character to be played by Suicide Squad star Jared Leto. Although a crossover between Leto and Tom Hardy’s character won’t happen anytime soon, Venom will appear in the movie in the form of an Easter egg.

This article contains POTENTIAL SPOILERS for Morbius.

A fan shared a set photo on Reddit which shows a wall of graffiti. Among those graffiti is a drawing of Venom, which is essentially a black dot, with the character’s trademark eyes and sharp teeth. The character’s name is also written below the graffiti.  You can check it out here.

The wall of graffiti also features, what seems to be, the name “Royt” on the left side and “Kane” on the right side. Although some fans initially thought that the latter name is an Easter egg for the Scarlet Spider, it seems like both names are made to be put together. This makes the name “Royt Kane,” a reference to Morbius creator Roy Thomas and penciler Gil Kane.

Plot details about Morbius are scarce but the first trailer for the film featured a surprise appearance of Michael Keaton, speculated to reprise his role as Adrian Toomes as well as a Spider-Man graffiti. 

Morbius was initially set to arrive on theaters in July of this year but was pushed back to March 19, 2021.
