Sony has not confirmed the speculation. Some fans are pointing out that the July release date is possibly for "Kraven The Hunter", which is based on one of Spider-Man's frequent enemies. The project has a script currently being written by "The Equalizer 2" screenwriter Richard Wenk, with Antoine Fuqua eyed reportedly eyed to direct the adaptation.
"Morbius", however, is likely to arrive earlier than "Kraven The Hunter" as it is already in production, with Jared Leto taking the title role. The "Suicide Squad" actor recently teased his transformation for the upcoming movie by sharing a shaving video. "Safe House" helmer Daniel Espinosa is on board as director.
