Internet Reacts to Jared Leto Cast as Morbius for Solo Film


He may or may not be reprising his role as The Joker in the DC Extended Universe, following the muted response to the character in Suicide Squad.

Late last week, the news had broken regarding the next move for Sony in regard to their lineup of Spider-Man spin-offs, with Silk looking like it could be the next big centerpiece (assumption: mine) of their lineup of Spidey-less universe blockbusters. The character fought Spider-Man several times, though eventually earned several of his own books where he had a more heroic arc.

Daniel Espinosa, who recently helmed the Sony sci-fi film Life (which ironically, people joked was a Venom prequel for months ahead of its release...for literally no reason at all), is set to direct.

He will play Dr. Michael Morbius, a biochemist who injects himself with a serum derived from bats in an attempt to cure a fatal blood disease.

Lukaku was forced off in the 59th minute due to an ankle ligament injury but Hazard praised the improvement shown by his teammate. The Manchester United striker had scored two goals in Belgium's opener against Panama where they had won 3-0 on Monday.

Morbius first appeared in the pages of The Amazing Spider-Man #101 back in 1971.

Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach will produce the Morbius movie with Lucas Foster, with Sony executive Palak Patel overseeing for the studio.

Leto's performance as The Joker in Suicide Squad was met with mixed reactions, though, possibly the more widespread reactions are those attributed to how he prepared for the role.

There's no timeline on when this'll go in front of cameras, nor any further word on why Silver and Black (which, by the way, we heard was being renamed Tri-Border) would be delayed while this project moves forward, but we'll keep you informed as further updates roll in.
