Trailer Talk: Morbius
So, after failing to capture what the Joker is in ‘Suicide Squad’, Jared Leto has set his sights on Marvel films…and this role looks perfect for him!
‘Morbius’ stars Jared Leto as Michael Morbius, a biochemist who tries to find a cure for his rare blood disease. However, he accidently infects himself with a form of vampirism.
This film looks like a lot of fun and, after the abomination that was the Leto Joker, I really hope this role suits him better. The visual effects look fantastic, and the small glimpse viewers get of the vampire at the end is a delight. Overall, it’ll be great to see Jared Leto join the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Yes, this film is set in the MCU according to the trailer. Graffiti showing the Tobey Maguire Spiderman and Michael Keaton’s Vulture (from Spiderman: Homecoming) are both shown right at the end. Is it possible we could see Morbius in the third Spiderman film?
‘Morbius’ will be in cinemas 31st July 2020.
Morbius is an upcoming American superhero film based on the Marvel Comics character of the same name, produced by Columbia Pictures in association with Marvel Entertainment and distributed by Sony Pictures Releasing.

Sazama and Sharpless had written a script by November 2017, with Leto and Espinosa officially joining in June 2018. Work began in earnest at the end of the year with further casting, ahead of a production start in February 2019 in London.
