First look At 'Suicide Squad's Jared Leto As Morbius, The Living Vampire In Spider-Man Spin-Off
Jared Leto looks pretty good for being a member of the undead in a sneak peek at Morbius, the Living Vampire:
The sneak preview was released to celebrate the end of the first week of filming on Morbius, which follows Venom as the second movie set in Sony's Universe of Marvel Characters.
Leto will play biochemist Dr Michael Morbius, who accidentally turns himself into a bloodsucking vampire when an experiment to cure his rare blood disorder goes very wrong.
The first-look photo might actually showcase Leto as Dr Michael Morbius rather than as the Living Vampire, which would explain the lack of grey skin and piercing red eyes.
Back in November, Leto took the first steps towards transforming into Morbius, the Living Vampire when he shaved off his trademark beard in time for pre-production.
The Spider-Man spin-off will also feature former Doctor Who star Matt Smith in a top-secret role, with Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows' Jared Harris also coming aboard this week.
Morbius will be released in cinemas on July 31, 2020. A Venom sequel with Tom Hardy returning as well as a spin-off for Korean-American female hero Silk are also in the works from Sony's Universe of Marvel Characters.
