WATCH: New clip and poster for Morbius sees Jared Leto become super-human for the first time

December 6th, 2021 by Marc Comments

We have a new clip from January’s release of Morbius, the Sony/Marvel anti-hero movie that looks set to blur the lines of the MCU to the point of vibration (here).

The new clip sees Michael Morbius, Jared Leto, taking a serum that he hopes will save his life and, to the surprise of no-one, does much, much more.

The clip looks… fine… and I really want this movie to be good as I do like Leto and I know that,should this character succeed and become part of the MCU, there’s a much bigger story waiting to be told with characters like Blade, Ghost Rider and beyond.

Check the clip out below and let me know what you all think.

One of the most compelling and conflicted characters in Sony Pictures Universe of Marvel 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. While at first, it seems to be a radical success, a darkness inside him is unleashed. Will good override evil – or will Morbius succumb to his mysterious new urges?

Directed by: Daniel Espinosa

Cast: Jared Leto, Matt Smith, Adria Arjona, Jared Harris, Al Madrigal with Tyrese Gibson

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
