Sony Pictures have released the first full length trailer for their upcoming Morbius film. The 3 minute long trailer gives us a really good glimpse at the film, possibly highlighting a bit too much.
The trailer shows us how Dr. Michael Morbius goes from terminally ill physician to the superhuman living vampire known as Morbius.
Jared Leto will star as Dr. Michael Morbius/Morbius. Joining him will be Matt Smith, Adria Arjona, Jared Harris, Al Madrigal and Tyrese Gibson.
The trailer offered a few easter eggs which are sure to excite fans. Firstly, Dr. Morbius is seen holding a Daily Bugle newspaper. Within that newspaper are several Marvel references, including:
Rhino On The Loose: Zoo Hoax Fools Us All
Black Cat: Friend or Foe
Neither of these references confirm that Morbius is set within the MCU. However, Michael Keaton’s appearance does. Michael Keaton famously played Vulture in Spider-Man: Homecoming. It appears he will reprise this role in Morbius, if only for a fleeting moment. Fans are hoping this will inevitably lead to a Sinister Six film.
Morbius will be coming to theatres on January 28, 2022.
