Sony Pictures today released the upcoming Morbius movie trailer, confirming the studio’s Spider-Man villain films are in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Focusing on the Marvel Comics character Morbius the Living Vampire, Sony’s upcoming comic book movie stars Jared Leto as the movies anti-hero.
“Dangerously ill with a rare blood disorder, and determined to save others suffering his same fate, Dr Morbius attempts a desperate gamble. What at first appears to be a radical success soon reveals itself to be a remedy potentially worse than the disease.”
The movie is part of Sony’s Marvel Universe inspired by Spider-Man characters which began with 2018’s Venom.
Also during the trailer, Morbius (Leto) walks past an image of Spider-Man (Tom Holland) with the word “murderer” scrawled across it.
That’s clearly a reference to Far From Home‘s post credits sequence that saw Spidey framed for Mysterio’s (Jake Gyllenhaal) crimes.
Morbius is scheduled to be released in the United States on July 31, 2020.
