Jared Leto plays vampiric Spider-Man villain in Morbius trailer

The first trailer for Sony's Morbius feature adaptation starring Jared Leto as biochemist Michael Morbius in the Spider-Man spinoff has been released.

Regardless of the draw to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Morbius isn't considered part of the greater MCU, so we won't see the character interacting with the Avengers anytime soon.

The jury is still out until the trailer falls, of course, and we can see Leto in action and the general tone of the movie, but this first look at Morbium It is still enormously encouraging, however.

The photo was posted on Twitter, initially by a known insider of the entertainment industry.

For those unfamiliar, Morbius follows the title character, Michael Morbius (Leto), as he tries to find a cure for his rare and debilitating blood disorder.

At first, it appears that his gamble was a success.

Similar to Venom, the trailer makes it a point of stating, "From the studio that brought you Spider-Man: Homecoming" and "From the studio that brought you Spider-Man: Far From Home".

Jared Leto looks entirely in his element as Michael Morbius, playing both the dying, desperate scientist and the bloodthirsty villain with equal, Leto-y intensity.

There is also a rumor that Tom Holland may appear, which leads to.

Sony has had cinematic control over Spider-Man for well over two decades by this point.

The second thing is the appearance of Michael Keaton at the end of the trailer - Keaton, as you recall, was the villain Vulture in "Spider-Man: Homecoming". And while they have essentially lent the character to Disney in order for him to be included in the MCU, Sony only have full control over the movies produced by themselves - which Morbius is, and which Sam Raimi's Spider-Man trilogy was. Interestingly, the character will be used in such a way that he will actually help expand Sony's own Marvel universe.
