Marvel, Morbius, and Jared Leto? Sign Me Up!
Marvel’s ever growing film library is about to take a darker turn into one of their most conflicted characters, biochemist Micheal Morbius. The film will be distributed by Sony Pictures. Micheal Morbius was introduced in a 1971 Spider-Man comic and will be the main focus of this film dealing with his origin story.
With high expectations from comic book fans, we can be assured this film will keep very intact with the three comics that it is based on. Chris Arrant, writer for GamesRadar+, has updated us on which comics that Morbius will represent. The comics that this film will represent are Morbius: Old Wounds, Morbius: Preludes and Nightmares, and Morbius: Epic Collection: The End of a Living Vampire.
Morbius started and ended production three years ago in 2019 but the overall release schedule for the film has been pushed back many times by the ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic. Because of all of the schedule pushback, Marvel has finally announced that the long-awaited film is going to be released April 1st, 2022.
About The Film
In the film, we will see characters from the comics such as Morbius, obviously, as well as characters from outside the comics possibly showing up throughout the film. Morbius will showcase the titular character as he goes through a journey to cure his blood disorder that unfortunately leads him to develop vampirism. What we will see Morbius go through is not only physical changes but also mental changes as well as in his personal life. His journey will also show Morbius’s interactions with the other characters in the Martine, Emil, and Milo as he deals with the stages of transformation.
