The final (hopefully, because the last one that came out was supposed to be “final” as well) trailer for Sony/Marvel’s latest film, Morbius, has been released. Directed by Daniel Espinosa, and written by Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless, the film stars Jared Leto as The Living Vampire himself. Delayed seven times due to the COVID-19 pandemic, here’s hoping the movie does indeed release on April 1st.
Matt Smith plays the main antagonist of the film, Loxias Crown, and both actors are joined by Adria Arjona, Jared Harris, Al Madrigal, Tyrese Gibson, and Michael Keaton, who reprises his role as Adrian Toomes/Vulture, from the MCU’s Spider-Man: Homecoming. How will this movie connect to the MCU, when it’s supposedly set in a different universe than Tom Holland‘s Spider-Man‘s? Time will tell…
The plot synopsis reads: “One of the most compelling and conflicted characters in Sony Pictures Universe of Marvel 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. While at first it seems to be a radical success, a darkness inside him is unleashed. Will good override evil – or will Morbius succumb to his mysterious new urges?”
You can watch the final trailer below and (hopefully) see Morbius in theaters on April 1st:
