Tyrese is in an upcoming movie with ‘Spider-Man’ on the brain — whose producers had to turn Los Angeles into New York City for what were likely just a few pickup shots.
The actor was spotted in DTLA Saturday with a full production crew and an entire set that we’re told took up 3 to 4 different blocks. There were buses made to look like NYC public transit, plus NYPD cruisers and other NY-themed vehicles throughout.
You see Tyrese being fitted in a bullet-proof vest next to director Daniel Espinosa as they talk about the scene they’re about to shoot. Looks like Ty might be playing a cop.
The set appears to be for the new Jared Leto-led flick, “Morbius,” which features JL as a vampire superhero/villain and is set to be released this summer. He was seen on set by onlookers earlier in the day, BTW. So it’s almost all but certain … these were re-shoots.
The movie’s coming out in July, and the official status of things on IMDb is post-production.
Now, what’s interesting is that the movie’s not being produced under the Disney-Marvel umbrella, per se. Sony’s running this, but they seem to be keeping it in the known MCU.
The reason we know that … one of the buses was decorated with a fake movie ad from the Daily Bugle that reads, “Where is Spider-Man?” Also, J.K. Simmons is rumored to have been cast as J. Jonah Jameson — and he’s been in the Tom Holland movies lately.
The big question this tease asks … is Tom himself gonna be in this new flick??? No sign of him here, but that doesn’t mean he won’t show up at some point. Stay tuned …
