Jared Leto Is The Latest Spider-Man Villain To Get His Own Movie

In the above video, Leto says that he loves “the opportunity to do something transformational,” which makes sense, given his work in films like “Dallas Buyers Club,” “Suicide Squad,” and “Blade Runner 2049,” where he’s always in a lot of makeup or wearing contact lenses, able to exercise his notorious penchant for Method acting. The featurette also promises a new trailer for “Morbius” tomorrow, so be on the lookout for that.

If you remember, the first trailer in January 2020 showed Michael Keaton playing some version of Adrian Toomes, his character from “Spider-Man: Homecoming.” That, coupled with the “Venom: Let There Be Carnage” post-credits scene, would seem to have implications for Sony’s Spider-Man universe going forward. I’m just waiting for it to cross over with the Marvel Cinematic Universe, so that Mahershala Ali’s vampire-hunter, Blade, can slay Morbius.

“Morbius” stars Leto, Matt Smith, Jared Harris, Adria Arjona, Al Madrigal, and Tyrese Gibson, with at least a cameo by Keaton. Here’s the synopsis:

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, a darkness inside him is unleashed and transforms this healer into a hunter.

“Morbius” hits theaters on January 28, 2022.
