The first trailer for Daniel Espinosa’s Morbius attempts to quench our bloodlust as we see Jared Leto in action as the titular living vamprie. However, has the Spider-Man spin-off just created a Multiverse-sized Morbius plot hole hiding in plain sight?
As Morbius gets the action underway, we see Leto’s sickly Michael Morbius battling a rare blood disease. Seeking help in the occult, the movie’s biggest scene has Morbius attacked by a horde of vampire bats in a shadowy location.
Effectively becoming his own bat-man (pardon the pun), Morbius develops powers like flight, echolocation, and super strength. All of these would be fine, if not for his ravenous hunger for human blood.
There was plenty to take in during the first Morbius trailer. Alongside brief glimpses of other stars Jared Smith and Matt Smith, there are also TWO big connections to our wall-crawling hero.
The trailer rounds off with the return of Michael Keaton as Adrian Toomes, aka Vulture, from Spider-Man: Homecoming. Seen wearing the prison outfit he was locked up in, it looks like Toomes has just broken out from behind bars.
