Morbius Trailer Featuring Jared Leto
Get a Closer Look at Jared Leto's Grisly Debut as Marvel's Michael Morbius
Dr. Michael Morbius isn't your grandmother's vampire — oh no, he's much more frightening. The first full trailer for Sony's Jared Leto-led film "Morbius" dropped on Nov. 2, and it's chillingly scary. The three-minute clip shows Oscar winner Leto as he takes on the role of convoluted antihero Michael Morbius, a doctor whose illness leads him down a dark path of no return. Stricken with a rare blood disorder, Morbius desperately searches for a cure to save others from suffering a similar fate. But when he undergoes an experimental treatment that turns him into a living vampire, he discovers that "the remedy is worse than the disease."
On Feb. 28, the film's final trailer arrived, teasing the return of Michael Keaton as Spider-Man villain Adrian Toomes, aka Vulture — the character he originally played in "Spider-Man: Homecoming" — who believes Morbius has been given a gift rather than a curse. "Time to let go of what you used to be and discover what you're meant to be," Keaton says in the trailer. The upcoming film will show if Morbius accepts his fate as the bad guy or goes against the grain of his destructive superhuman powers.
Created by Roy Thomas and Gil Kane, Michael Morbius first appeared in 1971's "The Amazing Spider-Man" #101. The character joined Spider-Man's ever-rotating gang of villains before taking a turn for the antihero, similar to Sony's "Venom." The latest "Morbius" trailer gives fans all sorts of peeks into the dark and scary world of the film. Will "Morbius" be the first Sony film to properly cross over with the Marvel Cinematic Universe? We're not so sure, but you can be the judge of that when "Morbius" arrives in theaters on April 1.
