Jared Leto may be done playing his much maligned take on the Joker in the DC Extended Universe, but thankfully there’s no shortage of comic book properties for him to latch onto.
The latest is Morbius, part of Sony’s Marvel Universe (a.k.a., the scraps the studio was left with after making a deal to keep Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe).
The first trailer has today been revealed, and it looks like there’s a shot this relatively obscure B-character could make good on the silver screen.

Leto plays the title character, a.k.a. Dr. Michael Morbius, a Noble Prize-winning scientist who attempts to cure his own rare blood disease with an experimental procedure involving bats. Technically it works — although the side-effect turns him into a pseudo-vampire; think Blade’s “all of their strengths, none of their weaknesses,” except Morbius looks like a vampire and needs to ingest fresh blood to survive.
Morbius will mark the second entry in the SMU following 2018’s critically panned but commercially blockbuster Venom.
Andy Serkis is directing returning star Tom Hardy in the follow-up, expected out October 2nd, 2020. A number of other films have been teased in various stages — including Silk, Nightwatch, Silver & Black, Kraven the Hunter, Jackpot, and most recently Madame Web — but none seem to be making much progress.
Sequels and spin-offs for the Oscar-winning Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse seem like real possibilities, however.
One of Marvel’s most compelling and conflicted characters comes to the big screen as Oscar winner Jared Leto transforms into the enigmatic antihero, Michael Morbius.
Dangerously ill with a rare blood disorder, and determined to save others suffering his same fate, Dr.
Morbius attempts a desperate gamble.
