Jared Leto stars in Morbius, based on the long-running Spider-Man supporting character, who is sometimes one of Spidey's antagonists and sometimes one of his allies. You might not know the name Morbius yet, but you soon will with the Leto-starring film, which follows the titular anti-hero as he accidentally becomes the only living vampire.
As in the comics, Morbius is both a friend and foe to Spider-Man, so a connection of some sort wouldn't be unheard of.
"One of Marvel's most compelling and conflicted characters comes to the big screen as Oscar victor Jared Leto transforms into the enigmatic antihero, Michael Morbius". However, with the first advance of the film that will arrive next week, the marketing campaign is about to increase significantly in the coming months and now, a photo of the leader of 30 Seconds to Mars as the main character leaked online, what you can see below.
Morbius was a biologist trying to find the cure for a rare disease that carried in his blood. That all sounds kinda hypothetical until the final moments of the trailer when Michael Keaton shows up, making it seem as if the Vulture and Morbius are going to cross paths in the film.
In a trailer for the vampire flick "Morbius", released by Sony Pictures Monday, the 48-year-old Oscar victor ("Dallas Buyers Club") plays Dr. Michael Morbius, a scientist with a rare blood disorder looking for a cure that involves interacting with a slew of bats.
The teaser trailer for Morbius is out as Sony remains committed to creating their own Marvel universe adjacent to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Other are cautiously optimistic, commenting that while the image looks good and comic-accurate, we should all wait for the trailer to see how the character looks while moving. That makes this trailer debut all the more exciting.
Morbius is slated to hit theaters on July 31, 2020. Here's hoping Morbius can deliver something similarly entertaining despite all its brooding and bats and Leto-as-Cool-Jesus angst.
