Get ready for a horror-filled and blood-fueled Marvel world! On Monday, Sony unveiled the final trailer for Morbius, starring Jared Leto as the titular Living Vampire. 

This final go-round gives us a glimpse of Matt Smith‘s Loxias Crown, a.k.a. Hunger, a supervillain who initially worked for HYDRA and abducted Morbius to perform experiments. Eventually, Morbius drains Crown dry, transforming him into a Living Vampire.

Here’s a synopsis for Morbius per Sony Pictures

Dangerously ill with a rare blood disorder and determined to save others suffering his same fate, Dr. Morbius attempts a desperate gamble. While at first it seems to be a radical success, a darkness inside him is unleashed. Will good override evil – or will Morbius succumb to his mysterious new urges?

Morbius stars Leto, Smith, Adria Arjona as Martine Bancroft, Jared Harris as Emil Nikols, Al Madrigal as Agent Rodriguez and Tyrese Gibson as Simon Stroud. Michael Keaton also appears and could reprise his Spider-Man: Homecoming role as Adrian Toomes/Vulture. Daniel Espinosa helms the project with a screenplay by Burk Sharpless and Matt Sazama.

Leto had this to say regarding his role in the film: 

I’m attracted to roles where there’s an opportunity to transform – physical transformation, but also mental, emotional, any and all. I played Dr. Michael Morbius from his most frail, to his most powerful, to his most monstrous.

There’s a lot of range in there, so that was really fun to tackle. Not only does the movie have action, stunts, and fighting, but the role itself was taxing. Whenever he is fighting the affliction, he is caught in a crossroads between different parts of the character. It’s like a withdrawal process, a full body experience.

This trailer piques my interest more than the first one, and I hope it leans into the horror elements. It could be a breath of fresh air for Sony’s Marvel slate. 

Morbius soars into theaters on April 1. Watch the trailer below!
