We all know how the „recent plague” has affected the movie industry and I for one have been keeping an eye on various projects that have been announced since back in 2019, however none has been delayed as much as the adaptation off Morbius.
Many were expecting the release this month, however it has been pushed yet again and it looks like April 2022 could finally be the date we get to see Jared Leto in the role of the titular vampire on the big screen.
Bringing to live the story of Dr Michael Morbius (played by Jared Leto) – a biochemist who developed a rare blood disorder and ends up trying out experiments to find a cure. He succeeds, but it comes at a price – Morbius develops superhuman powers and is turned into a living vampire.
The trailers released promise quite a lot from a visual perspective and the material they have available is quite vast – the comic books span out of the Spider-Man universe, with the character first appearing in The Amazing Spider-Man Issue #101 (October 1971).
Beginning originally as an antihero – a version of our favourite vampire Dracula 😉 Morbius then crossed in several other pararel Marvel universes and Morbius also got his own series in the 70s.
Both the main and the supporting cast is quite impressive and we can look forward to a couple of cameos as well.
Morbius fans hope they’ll get to see Tom Hardy make a cameo appearance as Venom and we can also expect to see Michael Keaton, after he appeared in a teaser clip, but we’re not sure who he will be playing yet.
Are you as excited as I am? 😉
