Take a look at two final trailers that have been released for Sony’s long-delayed Marvel picture, Morbius.
The film has Oscar winner Jared Leto taking on the role of Marvel Comics character Morbius, the Living Vampire, a.k.a. Dr. Michael Morbius. Wanting to find a cure for his rare blood disease, the doc undergoes a risky biochemical experiment. The result: vampiric superhuman abilities and physical traits, along with an insatiable lust for human blood.
New snippets of footage offered up in the trailers, including a tad bit more of Michael Keaton reprising his Spider-Man: Homecoming role as Adrian Toomes, aka Vulture. So, yes, Morbius is part of the MCU, although we’ll see if the film and the character are well-received enough to have Leto returning in Sony’s future Marvel films.
The picture is directed by Daniel Espinosa (Safe House, Life) and penned by Dracula Untold and Lost in Space scribes Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless. The cast also includes Matt Smith, Adria Arjona, Jared Harris, Al Madrigal, and Tyrese Gibson.
After having its release pushed back multiple times, Morbius will finally be in Australian cinemas on March 31st and U.S. cinemas on April 1st.
