Sony Pictures has dropped a new Morbius trailer, starring Oscar winner Jared Leto as the titular Living Vampire. The video features lots of new footage highlighting Michael Morbius’ transformation as well as his inner dilemma of choosing between becoming a hero or a villain. It also continues to tease its connection to the other Spider-Man films by referencing Venom and revealing a new look at Michael Keaton’s return as Vulture.
The film is scheduled to hit the theaters this January 2022. Its current theatrical release will pit the superhero film against the new Scream film, Hotel Transylvania: Transformia, and The 355 who are all set to debut within the same month.

Based on the character created by writer Roy Thomas and artist Gil Kane in 1971, Morbius sees the introduction of Jared Leto as Marvel’s anti-hero Morbius the Living Vampire. Joining him are Matt Smith (Doctor Who) as Loxias Crown, Adria Arjona (Good Omens) as Martine Bancroft, Jared Harris (The Crown) as Morbius’ mentor, and Tyrese Gibson (Fast and the Furious) as an FBI Agent.
“One of Marvel’s most compelling and conflicted characters comes to the big screen as Jared Leto transforms into the enigmatic antihero Michael Morbius,” reads the synopsis. “Dangerously ill with a rare blood disorder and determined to save others suffering his same fate, Dr. Morbius attempts a desperate gamble. While at first it seems to be a radical success, a darkness inside him is unleashed. Will good override evil – or will Morbius succumb to his mysterious new urges?

Morbius is directed by Daniel Espinosa (Safe House) from a script by Burk Sharpless and Matt Sazama. It is produced by Avi Arad, Matt Tolmach, and Lucas Foster.
Originally Dr. Michael Morbius, the scientist character tried to cure his rare blood disease only to become afflicted with a form of vampirism that gave him superior strength, fangs, and a taste for the red stuff. The character fought Spider-Man several times, though eventually earned several of his own books where he had a more heroic arc. He has an ongoing feud with the character Blade the Vampire Hunter in the comics.
