How weird is it that I find myself just as intrigued by Sony’s hard-to-define SpiderVerse as I am Marvel’s huge sprawling MCU? And it isn’t really a SpiderVerse mainly because of Sony’s strict contractual obligations to Marvel. So it’s essentially SpiderVerse without a Spider-Man…I think.
Anyway, the newest addition looks to be “Morbius” which follows the immensely profitable “Venom”. The￼ film looks to be telling the origin story of Dr. Michael Morbius, a conflicted villain ￼soon turned antihero who ends up with vampiric superpowers. Jared Leto looks to be a great fit but it’s the surprising cameo at the end of the trailer that really excites me! It adds an entirely new twist to what Sony’s superhero universe may look like.
“Morbius” is set to hit theaters July 31st. Check￼ out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or taking a pass.￼
