Jared Leto Spills Blood In First Clip From ‘Morbius’

Jared Leto is currently receiving praise for his, let’s just call it what it is, overcooked performance in House of Gucci. Whether you think he’s deserving of the accolades that have been heaped on him or not, Leto remains quite a character who has done some unusual things to sink into a role. I hate to think what he did for Morbius, in which he plays Marvel’s antihero with a taste for blood.

Yesterday at the Brazil CCXP 2021, a place that is becoming a pop culture hotbed, the first clip from Morbius was revealed, showing his transformation from ailing scientist into a creature with vampire-like powers and thirsts. Also in the clip is co-star Adria Arjona as Morbius’ fiancee.

Exactly how Morbius will fit into Sony’s Spider-Verse is unclear, but with the presence of Michael Keaton, reprising his MCU role as Adrian Toomes/Vulture, it’s clear something is going on. And we can bet that Leto will take his performance way over the top because he doesn’t know any other way.

Morbius opens on January 28th 2022.

One of the most compelling and conflicted characters in Sony Pictures Universe of Marvel 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. 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?
