The year has only just begun, yet there are already many reasons to be excited. Last week, an updated trailer dropped for The New Mutants, and today we have the first official look at Morbius, the feature film following Marvel comics’ other infamous vampiric character.
Check out the trailer via IGN below:
The film is directed by Daniel Espinosa and stars Jared Leto as the titular character, as well as Adria Arjona, Matt Smith, Jared Harris, and Tyrese.
Its synopsis is as follows: “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. What at first appears to be a radical success soon reveals itself to be a remedy potentially worse than the disease.”
Produced by Sony, this film takes place in the same world as the company’s previous solo superhero film, Venom. There are also reported to be some concrete connections to the MCU’s Spider-Man films.
