Jared Leto has finally revealed to fans when the next trailer for Morbius will be released. While the Marvel character is a part of Sony’s Spider-Man universe, matching toes with Tom Hardy’s Venom and the upcoming Spider-Man: No Way Home starring Tom Holland. In this new teaser which hypes the second Morbius trailer release date of November 2nd, which happens to be a Tuesday, Jared Leto takes a look at the 50th anniversary of Dr. Michael Morbius’ Marvel debut.
Jared Leto Is Coming As Morbius
“Morbius is a Marvel character who has been an important part of the universe,” Leto says as the video begins. “He’s brilliant. He’s strong. He’s got some unique powers. But his powers seem to be out of his control.” Leto adds how he “loves the opportunity to do something transformational,” and notes how it was a very intense, physical role as Morbius goes from a frail, sick human being to a monstrous powerful being. He ends the teaser trailer by alluding a connection to Spider-Man, stating how “there’s a web of opportunity.”
