We are only a few months away from the release of Sony’s Morbius and we have finally got a new trailer to enjoy! Jared Leto stars in the film as one of Marvel’s most conflicted antiheroes. Sony worked with Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless on the script and Daniel Espinosa is directing.

The Morbius trailer opens as we learn more about the illness that has plagued not only Dr. Morbius but people around the world. After years of trying to find a cure, it looks as if he is going to take a somewhat different route. Somewhere deep in the jungle, he finds his answer. We then learn that he has been missing for quite a while but has become a much different man. Whatever he did, has changed him dramatically. And the transformation that Leto went through to fit both of these roles physically has paid off tremendously.

The trailer goes on to show off all of the different powers that Dr. Morbius now controls, like bat radar and flying. But these come at a cost. A very deadly cost. A monster within him now wants to kill and feed and doesn’t care who its victims are. It looks as if Moribus will be serving as an origin story for the character as he uncovers how he can control this power and use it for good. Or at least what he decides is good. Plus, he has the entire city torn on whether they love or hate him.

We are excited that this story is finally getting to see the light of day. Or night. Because Morbius is a vampire creature, right? Yeah, let’s go with the light of the night. This trailer just kicks up that excitement. It looks dark and edgy (in a good way) while also providing us the action we expect to see in Marvel films. Leto is joined by Tyrese Gibson, Al Madrigal, Matt Smith, Adria Arjona, Jared Harris, Michael Keaton and so many more.

Morbius will hit theaters on January 28, 2022. We’ve dropped the trailer below for you to enjoy! What do you think of this adaptation so far? Let us know in the comments below and on social media!
