The latest trailer for Sony/Marvel’s upcoming title Morbius recently came out. Interestingly, it reveals a special message from actor Jared Leto!
According to Comicbook, the new Morbius trailer has a special message straight from the lead actor Jared Leto. And before the clip starts, he is seen interacting with the viewers from his home. In the message, he is seen telling a lot about the upcoming film under the Sony Pictures Universe of Marvel Characters.
He tells about the complicated character of the story and how he will progress in the plot.
“He’s a guy who’s born with this horrible disease and is really a gifted person. When he was young, he was very curious about science and medicine and decided to dedicate his life to find a cure for the disease that he’s afflicted with and that others like him have, as well. But along the way, all hell breaks loose.”
However, he mentioned one key thing in the video, and it’s quite important to notice.
“Morbius” is part of the expanding MCU!
The most crucial part of his message comes out when he speaks about the expanding universe! Yes, he clearly says, although indirectly, that Morbius is part of the MCU. Well, that’s obvious to know since we all have witnessed Michael Keaton’s Vulture in the film’s first trailer earlier this year.
Here’s the excerpt from the clip when he mentions the superhero flick’s connection to the Marvel Cinematic Universe:
“In the process, I turn into a living vampire. That’s a little bit about what’s going on, and I think it’s going to be a fun one, and I can’t wait for you guys to see it. It’s an exciting role in an expanding universe, and there’s a lot for us to look forward to.”
Adding further, he also said that the story would show a fight between light and dark.
“There’s a dark side. So that battle between the light and dark is something that he fights throughout the film.”
Future surprises arriving soon
After this new trailer’s reveal regarding the hint of Jared Leto, it’s quite evident now that the upcoming movie is indeed adjacent to the MCU events. That’s what the fans are looking up to for the last few months. And it’s the oneness of both Sony and Marvel when it comes to a shared universe!
Along with Jared Leto, Morbius also stars Adria Arjona, Matt Smith, Al Madrigal, Tyrese Gibson, and Jared Harris in vital roles. It’s slated to release worldwide on March 19, 2021.
