Sony has started teasing Jared Leto’s Morbius by using the Instagram account for Flash Thompson from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
With Jared Leto’s Morbius only a few months away from release, Sony has began teasing the film through an Instagram account they created for Flash Thompson ahead of Spider-Man: Far From Home. Sony used a fan-made front page of The Daily Bugle to tease the film, with Flash Thompson reacting to a news story reporting on vampire sightings in New York. The newspaper art also has other references to Sony’s Marvel films as well as Jared Leto’s Morbius.
The Daily Bugle art has a headline reading “A Vampire in New York? 5th Vampire sighting reported in NY” – since it was fan-made, it has to be taken with a pinch of salt, but it’s still a great way of marketing Jared Leto’s Morbius and establishing the film’s place among Sony’s other Marvel properties. The main headline asks where Spider-Man is, while another story reveals that Cletus Kasady is on the run, teasing the Venom sequel. Take a look at Sony teasing Morbius with Flash Thompson’s Instagram story below.

Here is the official 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 soon reveals itself to be a remedy potentially worse than the disease.
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.

In Season 2, following the aftermath of their encounter with Trigon, Dick reforms the Titans. Under his supervision in their new home at Titans Tower, Rachel, Gar and Jason Todd train together to hone their hero abilities and work together as a team. They are joined by Hank Hall and Dawn Granger aka Hawk and Dove and Donna Troy aka Wonder Girl. Although these original Titans attempt to transition into a regular life, when old enemies resurface everyone must come together to take care of unfinished business. And as this family of old and new Titans – including Conner Kent and Rose Wilson – learn to co-exist, the arrival of Deathstroke brings to light the sins of the old Titans which threaten to tear this new Titans family apart once more.
The series stars Brenton Thwaites as Robin/Nightwing, Anna Diop as Starfire, Teagan Croft as Raven, and Ryan Potter as Beast Boy.
