Jared Leto is out for blood.
In a trailer for the vampire flick”Morbius,” published by Sony Pictures Monday, the 48-year-old Oscar winner (“Dallas Buyers Club”) plays Dr. Michael Morbius, a scientist with a rare blood disorder looking for a cure that involves interacting with a ton of bats. We all know where this is led.
He asks in voiceover before infecting himself with a kind of vampirism that gives him super speed, strength — there’ll be shirtlessness and abs — and”an overpowering urge to consume blood.”
The upshot? “I feel I’m more alive than ever,” proclaims a post-experiment Morbius.
This isn’t Leto’s first foray into comic book fandom, of course: He played the Joker in 2016’s”Suicide Squad.” A proposed solo film involving his version of the laughing villain was scrapped, according to Forbes. (Your job is secure, Oscar nominee Joaquin Phoenix.)
The personality Morbius appeared as a villain in the books in the 1970s but evolved into an antihero in subsequent iterations. His emergence in the film is part of an attempt to bring other Marvel characters to the screen, such as Venom, played by Tom Hardy in 2018 with a sequel.
The cast of”Morbius,” directed by Daniel Espinosa (“Child 44”), also includes Matt Smith, Adria Arjona, Jared Harris, Al Madrigal, Michael Keaton, J.K. Simmons and Tyrese Gibson.
