Sony released the first trailer for the upcoming film Morbius today.
Starring Jared Leto as the title character, the film follows Dr. Michael Morbius, a scientist who, in trying to find a cure for a rare blood disease, accidentally transforms himself into a living vampire.
Morbius marks Sony’s second attempt to launch a film starring one of Spider-Man’s villains following the box office success of Venom.
“One of Marvel’s most compelling and conflicted 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. What at first appears to be a radical success soon reveals itself to be a remedy potentially worse than the disease.”
Directed by Daniel Espinosa, Morbius also stars Adria Arjona, Matt Smith Jared Harris, and Tyrese Gibson.
