It is no secret that Sony intend to go down the Marvel Universe/Fox and now DC route of having an expansive universe. In fact I even had my suspicions months ago before anything was announced. Now that the trailer has dropped where does that leave us?
Well an interesting thing of note on io9.com by a very observant commenter under thae name of “Laurence” was that during the trailer further easter eggs were there for the unnobservant (myself included).
Look at this scene:
It seems fairly innocuous at first but what was noted is in fact that in greater detail (the picture above makes it hard too see) the files on the Oscorp screen reveal the following;
Nano Drug System, Weapons System 8A, Venom Storage 7-U, Exoskeleton 232, Plutonium Lab, Research SGOP 520, Transmitter Test 9, Carbon Fiber Test 7, Oscorp Lab 231, Internal System Test 2, Labs 2345 – 4748, Oscorp Tower File 23.
Synthetic plants, Experiment OCT 32A, 67B – Bio-Lab, Eel Lab – Report 29, Ravencroft, Oahu Facility, Document 9303-D, Power Station – NY, OS – Suit (Mark III), London Lab – 0930, Australia Project, Dr Connors File, Dr Morbius File
The bulk seem fairly related to the Sinister Six that I am sure will end up on the screen as has been no secret for a while, But emboldened heavily points to Venom and Morbius making it to the screen after all who can forget the X-Men 2 Computer Screen easter egg? Which was similar or indeed the SHIELD screen in Iron Man 2 both of which have since had a bulk of the names on their respective lists make an appearance.
But don’t take our word for it based on a blurry photo I got in touch with Laurence Almalvez the user who listed the Oscorp projects listed and he obliged us with the Hi-Res image that he acquired the names from.
So will the question is will the Living Vampire and the Lethal Protector form part of this Spider-centric shared universe?
