Jared Leto Prepares To Bring Another Comic Book Villain To Life With Morbius Movie

by Jacob Geller on Jun 27, 2018 at 04:00 PM

Emboldened from the Oscar-winning Suicide Squad, Jared Leto has reportedly signed on to star in Morbius, a film based on the blood-sucking Spider-Man villain. 

The clown prince of method acting will be a scientist-turned-Vampire, if the movie sticks closely to the source material. Even if it doesn't, Morbius is part of Sony's new movie anthology of Spider-Man villains that also includes Venom. 

We talked a little more about Morbius last year, and the rumors of further installments with Black Cat and Silver Sable.

Our Take
This cinematic universe has everything! Villains that have no name recognition! Relentlessly grim premises! No mention of Spider-Man anywhere, despite him being the only thing that ties them together!
