MORBIUS Star Jared Leto "Reveals" Sequel Script: MORBIUS 2: IT'S MORBIN' TIME

MORBIUS Star Jared Leto "Reveals" Sequel Script: MORBIUS 2: IT'S MORBIN' TIME MORBIUS Star Jared Leto "Reveals" Sequel Script: MORBIUS 2: IT'S MORBIN' TIME

Since its release, Morbius has become a subject of ridicule online. However, that social media attention has prompted a "re-release" in theaters and Jared Leto has got in on the joke with a sequel tease.

Morbius opened back in late March/early April to overwhelmingly negative reviews, with fans and critics alike agreeing that the movie sucked (there's an awful vampire pun for you to start the weekend).

This was reflected in the blockbuster's dismal box office takings, though something surprising has happened on social media in recent weeks. Rather than receiving the sort of vitriol movies like Fantastic Four and Suicide Squad did, Morbius has become a subject of ridicule, inspiring countless jokes and memes.

Most are in good fun, and Sony has even added more theaters to its domestic run to see if fans are inspired to go watch it again this weekend. We don't see Morbius generating the sort of numbers that open the door to a sequel (especially as the movie was dead serious and not even meant to be tongue in cheek), but even star Jared Leto is getting in on the joke now.

As you can see, he's shared a video of himself reading a script for the sequel by "Bartholomew Cubbins" (a pseudonym used by the Oscar-winner). The title? Morbius 2: It's Morbin Time. No one seems keen to see more of this Living Vampire on the big screen, but you really can't fault Leto for poking fun at himself.

Check out the video, along with our interview with the actor, below:

Getting some real "How do you do, fellow kids?” energy from these attemps to act like they are embracing Morbius' somewhat ironic meme-status.

@DrReedRichards - Sony tried their big re-release for this film in 1,000 theaters this weekend, and made an average of $85 per theater last night

Morbius started the weekend at $73.1M domestically, and will absolutely not reach $73.5M after this weekend

Sony got trolled into losing more money on this disaster 😂

@lordSTALE -

Respectfully disagree. This was not a deliberate trolling against Sony. This was a failed campaign in its favour.

People online were (and some still are) clamoring for this movie as so bad that it's unique. That it's somehow more entertaining, thus more deserving of praise, than the constant stream of above average movies and series that Marvel Studios continues to provide. They weren't hoping for this product to flop. They were praying that it would win, while failing to do what's basically necessary; pay to see it.

It wasn't a success in trolling. It was a failure of support.

@DrReedRichards - Of course it was trolling not support. Did you think this whole time we were gonna meme a movie into existance. Goddamnit man, you're always on the ball, but not on the court.

Contrary to your gaslighting, I'm right on target.

I do not think you were ever able to meme this thing into existence. I know it is what you've purposefully wanted, because I've seen it happen before, most notably with Venom in 2018, with all your rooting for a non-Marvel company to succeeds with a Marvel character.

I do not merely think. I know.

@DrReedRichards - Hahahhaha. Fool there is no gaslight, there is no great plan. They were just memeing it because it was funny. And most of precious mcu fanboys were in on it. I hate to tell you sweetie, but your average person isn't some weirdo who thinks of some psycho bullshit to somehow meme a movie into winning.



I mean seriously. This is just sad. And I think you know its wrong no matter how many times you repeat "I Know". What you think sony fanboys meet up in a giant square, they plan to [frick]ing topple the mcu. Shit some think Morbius is practically in the mcu.

All this is a cope to deal with the fact you cannot handle people mememing you dont like.

@DrReedRichards - And to be honest this is [frick]ing boring. [frick]ing weird ass discussions over [frick]ing memes. Listenting to your weird psycho rants.

"That it's somehow more entertaining, thus more deserving of praise, than the constant stream of above average movies and series that Marvel Studios continues to provide. They weren't hoping for this product to flop. They were praying that it would win, while failing to do what's basically necessary; pay to see it."

Who the [frick] writes this about Morb means.

Read bellow, son. Even those who legit only joked (unlike you) no longer do. Because they too realized that your joke was never funny to begin with. Because they realize that it was never intended as a joke.

Nothing. It was always random jokes. It was always funny, but it always ran out steam. But that right there you revealed yourself.

"that your joke was never funny to begin with. Because they realize that it was never intended as a joke."

You are having some weird cope, like pretending [frick]ing sony fans are planning to take over the white or something, because you dont like the jokes. Admit it. Its not because its [frick]ing intended a secret plan for morbius 79. Or some bullshit. Its because you dont like jokes. I mean if you dont funny I can understand, but you seem to bad about them. Its like a kid seeing people cheer about a movie he doesent like.

@DrReedRichards - And thats another thing. Its [frick]ing memes. Memes. Why do you speak like we are in a movie or some shit. I mean with everyone else on here, I have to do some psycho game, maybe say the word woke, or something else. But with you.....I just talk.

About you're so far off. There is nothing to do. Its pointless.



All those years of fighting Tyrantbossmedia, and JackRussoff, and all those guys. And this is the best you can give me.

...aaaaand there it is: Cheering, not mocking. Reveling, not ridiculing.

Need I really say more?

@DrReedRichards - Exactly. EXACTLY.

I am doing nothing right now. There is no game, there is no mocking, no reveling. Though maybe a little ridiculing. But there is certainly disapointment.

You need to stop pretending Mr RICHARDS. Denial is a powerful weapon, but it is also a weakness.
