Jared Leto Starring As The Blood-Sucking Antihero 'Morbius' In Upcoming Marvel Film

June 29, 2018

In 2016, 30 Seconds To Mars frontman Jared Leto first entered the very lucrative superhero movie universe in DC's Suicide Squad as The Joker. Now it looks like he'll be crossing the boarder over to the Marvel camp to portray the antihero "Morbius," an antihero from the Spider-Man franchise.

Titled as Morbius, Leto's character, Dr, Michael Morbius is a scientist suffering from a rare blood disease. But after an experimental attempt to cure himself fails, he is striken with super-strength, speed, vulnerability, and a thirst for human blood.

The film will be directed by Daniel Espinosa (Safe HouseLife).

Morbius follows another Marvel antihero film VENOM, starring Tom Hardy, that will hit theaters on October 18th, 2018.
