New Details On Jared Leto’s ‘Morbius’ Reveal The Main Villain

New details for Jared Leto’s Morbius have emerged, revealing the film’s main villain.

Sony has recently released two films that were enjoyed and praised by many. Venom and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse were big hits among fans with some claiming that Into the Spider-Verse is one of if not the best Spider-Man films ever. Venom was a huge hit at the box office with a greater focus on the iconic  Spider-Man villain and now we can look forward to another Spider-Man villain’s story in this new upcoming film.

Jared Leto is on board as the main character Dr. Michael Morbius along with Adria Arjona, Matt Smith, Jared Harris, and Tyrese Gibson. Adria Arjona will be appearing as Jared Leto’s love interest as Martine Bancroft. Tyrese Gibson will be portraying an FBI agent who is hunting down the living vampire. Jared Harris has been revealed to portray the mentor of Morbius. We also now know the film’s villain.

Matt Smith will be portraying the film’s main villain, Loxias Crown. Details about the film reveal that Loxias Crown has the same blood disease that Jared Leto’s Dr. Michael Morbius is suffering from. Morbius attempts to cure himself from this disease, leading to disastrous results. Morbius is one of many Spider-Man villains that have captured the attention of many due to his backstory as he is not always a villain, but more of an anti-ero.

The film will be based on the Marvel comic Morbius the Living Vampire featuring the popular anti-hero who first appeared in The Amazing Spider-Man #101. In the comics, the famed scientist Dr. Michael Morbius attempted to cure himself of a rare blood disease and consequently developed a form of vampirism instead.

Directed Daniel Espinosa, Morbius stars Jared Leto, Matt Smith, Adria Arjona, Jared Harris, and Tyrese Gibson.

Venom Concept Art Reveals Ridiculous Chest Symbol Designs For Tom Hardy

Ruben Fleischer Venom Sony Tom Hardy Marvel Spider-Man Birds of Prey IMAXNew concept artwork for Tom Hardy's Venom shows off several versions of the symbiote chest symbol, revealing the designs for what we could have gotten in the film.

It's safe to say that Tom Hardy's Venom wasn't enjoyed much by critics, but fans seemed to have liked it given how well it did at the box office. The film lacked modern elements of a superhero film and felt like it disregarded storytelling, a tight plot and a convincing story for its characters. Nevertheless, the action sequences and the CGI for the Venom characters were outstanding. Be that as it may, many fans missed the fact that Venom himself didn't feature the classic white spider on his chest, which was a big let-down after several years waiting for a new iteration of the Spider-man baddie after the whole Topher Grace fiasco in Sam Raimi's Spider-Man 3.

Well, new concept artwork revealed by The Venom Site recently surfaced and it features a white chest brand for Tom Hardy, but not the classic white spider. Nevertheless, it's a more comic accurate look for Tom Hardy than the one we saw in the film. Check out the pictures in the gallery below.

Tom Hardy Venom

Venom follows Eddie Brock as he attempts to revive his journalism career by investigating the Life Foundation only to come into contact with an alien symbiote that bonds with him, granting him powers and transforming him into the titular anti-hero.

A sequel to Venom is currently in the works at Sony Pictures with writer Kelly Marcel. Hardy, Williams, and Harrelson are expected to return, but Fleischer likely won’t be back in the director’s chair as he’s busy shooting the studio’s Zombieland sequel.

Directed by Ruben Fleischer from a script by Jeff Pinkner & Scott Rosenberg and Kelly Marcel, the film stars Tom Hardy, Michelle Williams, Riz Ahmed, Scott Haze, Reid Scott, Jenny Slate, Ron Cephas Jones, and Woody Harrelson.

One of Marvel’s greatest and most complex characters takes center stage as Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy) becomes the host for the alien symbiote Venom. As a journalist, Eddie has been trying to take down the notorious founder of the Life Foundation, genius Carlton Drake (Riz Ahmed) – and that obsession ruined his career and his relationship with his girlfriend, Anne Weying (Michelle Williams).

Upon investigating one of Drake’s experiments, the alien Venom merges with Eddie’s body, and he suddenly has incredible new superpowers, as well as the chance to do just about whatever he wants. Twisted, dark, unpredictable, and fueled by rage, Venom leaves Eddie wrestling to control dangerous abilities that he also finds empowering and intoxicating. As Eddie and Venom need each other to get what they’re looking for, they become more and more intertwined — where does Eddie end and Venom begin?

Venom is now available on Digital HD and on 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack, Blu-ray Combo Pack, and DVD.
