Over a year ago, Sony launched its own Universe of Marvel Characters with the release of Venom. Now, the shared cinematic world will continue this summer with Morbius, a feature film centered on the titular living vampire starring Jared Leto.
Today, Sony released an official synopsis for Morbius to accompany the recently released trailer for the Jed Leto film. You can read the official synopsis for Jared Leto’s Morbius below:
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 soon reveals itself to be a remedy potentially worse than the disease.

Morbius will be based on the Marvel comics centered on the titular Living Vampire and 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 from a script written by Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless, Morbius 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 will be released in theaters on July 31, 2020.
