First ‘Morbius’ Trailer Surprises and Teases the Future
MORBIUS is the next film in the Sony Marvel Universe following the wildly successful VENOM. Directed by Daniel Espinosa and written by Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless, MORBIUS stars Jared Leto in the title role alongside Adria Arjona, Matt Smith, Jared Harris, and Tyrese Gibson.
The film looks to to have a horror tone, a tone not seen in comic book movies that often. However, it makes sense as this film is said to be a horror film.
The Morbius makeup and costume design are spot on, transforming Jared Leto to a comic accurate representation of Spidey’s vampire foe.
There also are 2 Easter eggs in the trailer that seem to link to Tom Holland’s Spider-Man, and a connection to the MCU.
“The first big Easter egg of the Morbius trailer comes with a shot of some Spider-Man graffiti, and "murderer" crudely spray-painted over the top. This is a reference to the conclusion of Spider-Man: Far From Home, where Jake Gyllenhaal's Mysterio framed Peter Parker for a terrorist attack and then revealed his identity to the entire world via J. Jonah Jameson's news outlet. Although it was believed Spidey's association with the Avengers might save him the public moral scrutiny, the accusations appear to have taken their toll on the web-slinger's reputation.“
“The biggest moment in the trailer whatever way you slice it, Michael Keaton is reprising his role as Vulture from Spider-Man: Homecoming. Although Keaton's role could be nothing more than a cameo, the implications are huge, since his presence confirms beyond doubt that Sony's Marvel movies are now part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Morbius finished filming in June 2019, months before the Spider-Man rights issues become headline news.”
The trailer is sure to get comic book fans excited, and I feel the buzz for this film is about to skyrocket! What are your thoughts on the trailer? Let us know by commenting below!
