Morbius -- July 2020

Recommended Posts

So.... Jared Leto couldn't make the Joker work so he's giving a go at Morbius, the Marvel based modern take on a Vampire.  He's a familiar story to Marvel and specific to Spiderman, a brilliant scientist who's running out of time needed to cure an incurable disease, takes an ill advised risk at a cure (seriously, how many times can Marvel actually use this trope) and the resolution is something unexpected.  Trailer would seem to indicate that they're not changing many of the particulars of his canonical origin story.  The real story is what universe does this take place in?  This is a Sony pic from the Spidey Universe (think Venom), not a Marvel movie property, but...... who was that guy in the final scene?  That would seem to indicate there is some type of crossover between Marvel and Sony and this may be the movie which bridges that gap.  Jonah Jameson (JK Simmons) is also rumored to make an appearance.  Wha????  Does that mean this movie isn't part of Tom Hardy's Venomy universe?  Are we getting crossover amongst all the Universes?  How can we have Infinite earths without the Flash?  Anyways, if this is your thing..... Leto, Matt Smith, a stunning Adria Arjona, and Jared Harris round out a solid cast.... Surprised this isn't scheduled for an October release.

Really wish they had saved Morbius for the villain in the next Spider-Man. A darker Spidey film that leans a little more horror would have been fantastic. Also a perfect opportunity to spin off the new Blade.

Yes. What have I missed? They're making a new one?

This Mobius guy. Is he a good guy, bad guy what? Movies with the bad guy as the antagonist can be real good.

Mostly bad in the early days but became more of an antihero. Would have been awesome to see him hunting Spidey as Peter Parker's blood can temporarily cure his vampirism. Peter also slowly discovering that there exists a freak show underworld with a more supernatural clientele (Blade, Man-Wolf, Mephisto, etc.) would have been great.

And Disney is rebooting Blade with Mahershala Ali.

I got into Morbius comics back in the day. Pretty sure I have the first few issues tucked away in a box at my parents’s place somewhere.

Blade is Disney/Marvel (and they aren't letting him go for more than a few minutes in a movie), and as mentioned above, they are doing a new one.

My point is Morbius is a great Spidey villain who happens to be a (living) vampire. I think there's an interesting Spider-Man film there to be had, rather than a stand alone Morbius film that likely won't be as interesting.

Disney could then use the Spidey crossover agreement in place with Sony and kick off the Blade franchise with a cameo appearance that's going to be seen by 97% of the planet. The hype for their upcoming Blade flick would then be off the charts.

Not really feeling that trailer even though I like Leto and love Jared Harris. This sounds ridiculous to say in the Marvel world but: accidentally turning oneself into a vampire seems like a silly premise.

I hope it’s good.
