With filming now underway for Sony’s next Spider-Man spin-off Morbius, The Living Vampire, fans can now get their first look at the living vampire from the film. Star Jared Leto shared the first look of him as Morbius on his Instagram. Check it out here:
Created by Roy Thomas and Gil Kane, Dr. Michael Morbius made his debut in The Amazing Spider-Man #101 back in 1971 and was originally a tragic and sympathetic enemy of Spidey, although much like Venom, he has since often been portrayed as an antihero. He is a biochemist who becomes inflicted with a form of vampirism after attempting to cure himself of a rare blood disease, taking on the mantle of Morbius, the Living Vampire.
Morbius is set for release on July 31st 2020 and sees Daniel Espinosa (Safe House) directing a cast that includes Jared Leto (Suicide Squad) as Dr. Michael Morbius, Adria Arjona (Pacific Rim Uprising) as Martine Bancroft, Matt Smith (Doctor Who) as Loxias Crown, Jared Harris (The Terror) as Morbius’ mentor, and Tyrese Gibson (Fast & Furious) as an FBI agent.
