Sony Pictures in association with Marvel dropped the first trailer for the much-anticipated Morbius movie. Morbius stars Jared Leto as the anti-hero title character, who starts out as a dying doctor looking for a cure that transforms him into a bloodsucking vampire.
With his intense good looks, smoldering stares, and a somewhat offputting charm, Jared Leto was born to play a vampire. In fact, he often refers to himself as one on social media. The Oscar-winning actor has been teasing fans with glimpses into Dr. Michael Morbius on his Instagram.
Morbius is the second film release in a series of movies based around the shared Spider-man universe, the first being 2018’s Venom.
Set to release July 31, 2020, Morbius also stars JK Simmons (La La Land, Juno), Matt Smith (The Crown), Adria Arjona (6 Underground), Tyrese Gibson (Fast & Furious franchise), Jared Harris (Foundation, Chernobyl), and Michael Keaton. The screenplay was written by Matt Sazama, Burk Sharpless, Art Marcum, and Matt Holloway and directed by Daniel Espinoza.
