The first reactions from Morbius have discussed Jared Leto’s performance and the film’s post-credits scene.
The wait is almost over! Jared Leto’s upcoming stint as Morbius is finally set to debut early next month. The Sony film has been delayed numerous times due to the COVID-19 pandemic, so it’s exciting to finally see the living vampire grace the big screen.
Early reactions from the film have surfaced online and they mostly lean towards negative, occasionally mixed. While most don’t have any qualms with Jared Leto or Matt Smith’s performances, viewers were hoping for more from the film’s plot. Most have taken to roast Sony for a mediocre offering but the harshest comments discuss the post-credits scenes.
Described as “some of the worst post-credits scenes you’ve ever seen,” by one user, it’s hard to imagine just what exactly the film’s final moments entail. Of course, not everyone is negative about Sony’s latest, with some praising the film’s horror elements.
We’ll find out soon enough if Sony has another success like Venom on its hands.
Here is the synopsis for the film:
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 film and Jared Leto’s role in it and be sure to subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original video content.
