Do you remember Morbius? One year ago Sony released its new antihero movie’s first trailer, and eventually we now get more photographs illustrating what we can expect from the new part in Sony’s Spider-Man Universe (RIP Sony Pictures Universe of Marvel Characters, or SPUMC in short form).
Jared Leto stars as the titular Dr. Michael Morbius, a Nobel Prize-winning scientist who was born with a blood disease and spends his whole life controlled by curing his affliction, but eventually turns himself into a so-called “Living Vampire” when trying to look for a cure. The film also includes Matt Smith, Adria Arjona, Jared Harris, Al Madrigal, Tyrese Gibson and Michael Keaton, who will be repeating his role as the villain Vulture.
Whereas Morbius‘s existence prior to his transformation has been almost spent a lot of time in previous trailers, a large amount of vampiric Leto is shown in this latest trailer. In some scenes, Morbius becomes wild, and according to Daily Bugle shows, once Morbius is “apprehended for ‘vampire murder.'” Close to the end of the trailer, Jared Harris asks Morbius, “Are you here to heal the world, or destroy it?” Morbius answers, “I don’t know.” Nevertheless, it is obvious that the trailer has a few fun signals to the bigger world being raised around these Spider-Man villains. Keaton appears in a very short time and reveals that he and Morbius should “stay in touch,” and at the end of the trailer Morbius even makes a joke that he would become Venom. Following the success of Venom: Let There Be Carnage, it’s not a big surprise when this new trailer describes the more savage and unpredictable side of Morbius.
Morbius is directed by Daniel Espinosa with a script by Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless when Avi Arad, Matt Tolmach and Lucas Foster are responsible for producing the film. Earlier this year, Espinosa skipped a possible cameo by Venom himself, Tom Hardy in the film, even though it is still considered to be a real spoiler, or just an accident.
As the newest movie in the universe previously known as SPUMC, Morbius could result in many benefits. For one, Keaton’s Vulture appearing in this movie shows a more tightly-knit SPUMC than formerly thought, something that was consequently verified by the post-credits scene in Venom: Let There Be Carnage which establishes an Into the Spider-Verse as the future for the Sony universe.
However, please remember that Morbius was originally about to release before Venom 2; therefore, it’s possible that there won’t be anything as crucial as that post-credits reveal.
Meanwhile, we have to wait until January 28, 2022 to see Morbius carnage being unleashed. Please watch the new trailer below:
