MORBIUS: New Stills Tease The Jared Leto's Transformation Into The Marvel Universe's Living Vampire
Sony Pictures has released a new batch of stills from Morbius showcasing the early stages of Dr. Michael Morbius' transformation into a Living Vampire! We also get a new behind the scenes look at the film.
After multiple delays caused by the pandemic, we're now just over seven weeks away from Morbius arriving in theaters. The latest sneak peeks for the Sony movie helped increase excitement among fans, and we have a new batch of stills from the Living Vampire's big screen debut.
These images seemingly show Morbius making his escape in a prison jumpsuit; presumably, the time he spends behind bars will be what leads to the doctor crossing paths with the MCU's Adrian Toomes.
There's also a behind-the-scenes shot from the movie, Michael seemingly experimenting with his blood, and a recently released image of the title character meeting with Martine Bancroft. These don't reveal much about what we can expect from Morbius, though it is beginning to feel like the blockbuster could exceed expectations the same way Venom: Let There Be Carnage did earlier this year.
"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," 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 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?"
The cast of Morbius includes Jared Leto, Matt Smith, Adria Arjona, Jared Harris, Al Madrigal, and Tyrese Gibson, while the movie will arrive exclusively in theaters on January 28, 2022.
