During an interview with Variety, Jared Leto spoke about why the film would be different from current hero films.
For the star, the plot of the film is a sort of reinterpretation of “ The Doctor and the Monster, ” a literary classic written by Robert Louis Stevenson in 1886.
“Morbius” looks more like a thriller and horror movie than a superhero movie, although it takes place in this universe. But the movie also has some funny moments … I would describe it as a tribute to “The Doctor and the Monster”. But it’s a blockbuster, definitely a blockbuster and I’m excited for the debut.
For those who are not familiar, the character first appeared in issue 101 of “ The Spectacular Spider-Man, ” released in 1971.
In the plot, Dr. Michael Morbius suffers an accident while testing the possible cure for a blood disease and ends up transforming into a vampire, artificially created and different from mythological creatures.
Directed by Daniel Espinosa, the cast also includes Tyrese Gibson, Jared Harris and Matt Smith.
