‘Morbius’ Trailer: Hey it’s Jared Leto as a vampire in this Spider-Man spin-off and I don’t fucking care
Morbius trailer! Woo. Man, I can’t even feign excitement. Sometimes, as a pseudo-pop culture website, you post shit you don’t care about. To cover the bases, if you will. This is one of those times.
Is there any better match of art to artist than the idea of Jared Leto playing a tortured, creative soul shunned by his community simply because he’s also kind of a draining, uber-brooding weirdo? That’s the question we’re forced to contemplate today, as Sony dropped the trailer for Morbius.
Based on the “living vampire” character first introduced as a bad guy in a Spidey comic in 1971, the film’s trailer shows an infirm Leto finding new life (and teeth) via an experimental blood treatment involving many, many bats. Jared Harris, hot off Chernobyl and ready to make some of that Marvel money, co-stars alongside Matt Smith, Adria Arjona, Tyrese Gibson, and a familiar face from Marvel’s Spider-Man franchise.
