Jared Leto is switching sides. He’s trading in his clown makeup for some fangs and thirst for blood in the first teaser trailer for Morbius.
If you’re a character in a comic book, chances are you will be getting your very own movie someday. Cue Michael Morbius, the scientist turned vampire, who’s just looking for a miracle cure to his almost incurable disease. He may be an unknown character to many which may be a big risk for the MCU, but that’s right Morbius will be apart of the MCU.
It was unclear until recently and the big reveal at the end of the trailer cements it fully. Micheal Keaton returns as The Vulture. Even if it’s a brief cameo we now know that Morbius will eventually go toe-to-toe with Spider-Man. Morbius will serve as a launching pad for another Spider-Man baddie, and one that could finally not be connect to Tony Stark which would be refreshing to say the least.
The trailer itself is just okay, it actually reminds me a lot of Venom‘s first trailer. The studio obviously doesn’t want to show off his look to much right away and want to save it for the films release. The little we did see looked pretty creepy. Whether or not they will be making him another anti-hero reminds a mystery. This looks dark and will be the closest horror MCU movie we may ever get.
