MORBIUS International TV Spot Sees The Good Doctor Give In To His New, Bloodthirsty Impulses

We're now less than a month away from the release of Morbius, and a new international TV spot for the Sony Pictures movie reveals more of Dr. Michael Morbius' transformation into a literal Living Vampire.

With so much hype still surrounding Spider-Man: No Way Home, it's easy to forget that we're less than a month away from kicking the year off with our first Marvel movie: Morbius. Set in Sony's Spider-Man Universe, there's a lot of intrigue surrounding the blockbuster, especially as it takes place in a world seemingly borrowing from multiple realities (unless that was all misdirection).

It's likely to tie into the MCU somehow, though, because we know Michael Keaton was shooting additional scenes as Adrian Toomes just a few weeks ago. There are no Multiversal teases in this international TV spot, unfortunately, though we do get to see more of the Living Vampire in action.

You have to believe the marketing campaign for Morbius will pick up the pace over the next few weeks, as the movie otherwise risks being overlooked (there's not a lot of hype online right now). Given the unprecedented box office success of Spider-Man: No Way Home, Sony is no doubt hoping this "spinoff" can capitalise, launching a franchise as successful as the Venom movies. 

"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 success, a darkness inside him is unleashed. Will good override evil - or will Morbius succumb to his mysterious urges?"

The cast of Morbius includes Jared Leto, Matt Smith, Adria Arjona, Jared Harris, Al Madrigal, and Tyrese Gibson, and the movie is currently set to arrive exclusively in theaters on January 28.
