Sony and Marvel team up once again to give another Spider-Man villain its own film. First came the wildly popular but critically bashed VENOM, now we get the trailer for this summer’s MORBIUS featuring Jared Leto as its lead character. The film suggests being tied to the MCU in a heavy-handed way with its final frames and the cameo therewithin. Good? Bad? A horror superhero, finally? What do you think?
One of Marvel’s most compelling and conflicted characters comes to the big screen as Oscar® winner Jared Leto transforms into the enigmatic antihero, Michael Morbius. Dangerously ill with a rare blood disorder, and determined to save others suffering his same fate, Dr. Morbius attempts a desperate gamble. What at first appears to be a radical success soon reveals itself to be a remedy potentially worse than the disease. Coming to theaters July 31, 2020.
