Look, it's a Monday. I'm out here just trying to live my life. I'm minding my own business. Heck, the Academy Award nominations came out...I have enough on my mind today.
But then — outta freakin' nowhere — a teaser trailer for Sony Pictures' Moribus dropped online with absolutely no warning and now I can think and/or talk about nothing else:
Okay, so...allow me to break this teaser down for you as best I can:
Jared Leto is Michael Morbius*, a Nobel Prize-winning doctor living with a rare blood condition that is slowly but surely killing him.
Morbius is quickly running out of time in his search for a cure to his crippling disease, which causes him to resort to some seriously desperate options...
...which — as with most comic book tales — takes a dark turn, and Morbius gets transformed into a “pseudo vampire." Yes, you read that correctly.
While his newfound state does come with some serious perks — like echolocation and flight — it also comes with that typical vampire downside: A pesky thirst for blood.
But the real WHAT THE HECK moment of the trailer comes at the tail end, when we get a glimpse of a ~familiar face~. Yup, that's Michael Keaton reprising his role as Adrian Toomes/Vulture as previously seen in Spider-Man: Homecoming.
Overall, the tone of the film feels super spooky and very similar to 2017's Venom, but, like...with just a DROP of Van Helsing added in for good measure.
Naturally, Marvel fans about lost their darn minds at all of this. There's just...so much to unpack here:
Especially given all the ~drama~ between Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios over the Spider-Man property in the not-so-distant past:
So uh...yeah! There's certainly a lot to be excited about here, so be sure to catch all of this super spooky goodness when Morbius hits theaters Summer 2020!
