In the meantime, Sony has dropped a featurette with Jared Leto explaining Morbius’ comic book history. You can check out the brand-new featurette below.

Here is the synopsis for Jared Leto’s Morbius:

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. Dangerously ill with a rare blood disorder, and determined to save others suffering his same fate, Dr. Morbius attempts a desperate gamble. What at first appears to be a radical success, a darkness inside him is unleashed and transforms this healer into a hunter.

Directed Daniel Espinosa from a script written by Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless, the film stars Jared Leto as the lead anti-hero, Adria Arjona, Matt Smith, Jared Harris, and Tyrese Gibson. Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach are producing the project with Lucas Foster, while Palak Patel will oversee for Sony.

Morbius is currently scheduled to be released in theaters on April 1, 2022. Stay tuned for all the latest news on the Jared Leto film, Sony’s plans for their Spider-Man universe, and be sure to subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original video content!
