Of course, many Marvel fans have taken to Twitter to hear about this leak from the cast of morbius. We’ve been stalking all night to find the best reactions to this cast leak for morbius. Grab your wooden poles and dive into the latest news about the new morbius movie.
The doctor will see you now. . . .
For those who don’t know, Morbius, also known as Morbius the Living Vampire, was created in 1971 by writer Roy Thomas and artist Gil Kane. The original comics discuss the trials and tribulations of Dr. Michael Morbius who became a vampire after trying to cure his rare blood disease. He fought Spider-Man several times before becoming an antihero, though he still fought the vampire fighter Blade after his shift to heroics.
The film follows that same origin story. Stars Jared Leto as the titular character, Matt Smith as Loxias Crown, Adria Arjona as Martine Bancroft, Jared Harris as Morbius’ mentor and Tyrese Gibson as FBI agent.
The film is directed by Daniel Espinosa from a script by Burk Sharpless and Matt Sazama. It is produced by Avi Arad, Matt Tolmach and Lucas Foster. It is currently slated to hit theaters on January 28, 2022.
poison in the veins
Espinosa’s leak comes from an interview with MovieZine discuss what it was like to lead such a high-profile project. During that interview, he may have leaked the look of Tom Hardy’s Venom, which could lead to the two working together for the first time since 2015. Child 44.
“It usually feels strange before the day starts, when you look at the schedule and get yourself on set,” Espinosa said, “when you walk around there, the recording looks like a Swedish production, but when you look at the plans and names reading like Michael Keaton, Jared Leto, Tom Hardy, it feels cool and very exciting, but once you start working, it’s exactly the same.”
With this leak, many have taken to social media to speculate about Hardy’s role in the… morbius movie, either as a hero trying to stop the vampire, or as a cameo at the end of the credits. Anyway, many are excited to see the symbiote take on another major parasitic character.

Twitter is done with silver
Many Twitter users discussed the potential leak, mentioning how it gives Sony the opportunity to create their own cinematic universe of side characters from the Spider-Man universe, who may also have their own version of our favorite wall crawler. Responses to this leak include:

Yes, that was our response too. This movie sounds better and better. . . .
Morbius is in the #venom Cinematic Universe? I may have a reason to watch it now! https://t.co/9oqsqf2faT

That is Surely a reason to watch them, these movies are fantastic!
Let’s hope they can make a connected universe of their own and maybe just get past 3 movies.

Fingers crossed, but given the first film we are quite hopeful!
My guess is that, whatever happens in #NoWayHome, it will be used as the way to take Spider-Man out of the MCU and give Sony the option for a soft reboot outside of the MCU’s continuity (and perhaps within their Venom/Mobius continuity).

That would certainly break some brains, we won’t lie.
Okay, I’ll take it back. Morbius is not going to flop. https://t.co/EXEiFGO3S3
