Look, Sony baby just please stop. It’s bad enough that your Amazing Spider-Man cinematic Universe failed. It’s bad enough that you’re making a Venom movie that doesn’t involve Spidey. Now you want to make a Morbius The Living Vampire movie starring Jared Leto? Sony, I think Marvel Studios and you need to have a intervention. Read further on for my thoughts on this weird announcement.
Living Vampire Can Work Solo?
I will get my bias right out of the way, I’ve never been a fan of solo villain stories. To me a villain is only as strong as the heroes they face off against. However there are exceptions to that rule. Now I’m not sure that Morbius falls into this category, but his story can potentially stand alone without Spider-Man. Morbius himself is a compelling character, so there is foundation to make a solid movie. My concern for this film is that this will be a simple Vampire story that adds in the super heroics. This should be a movie about Pathos, not action. I’m not against fight scenes but this film has the chance to be something unique. However knowing Sony, it’ll be the exact opposite.
Jared Leto Perfect Choice?
I am not the biggest fan of Jared Leto. While some fans praise his acting, I just see a dude who likes playing weird characters. Just look at his Joker portrayal back in Suicide Squad. Could he bring the pathos that fans have come to associate with Michael Morbius? Yes, I believe that he can, I just don’t think it’ll be deeper than a shallow pool. If anything, Leto’s name attached to the project could bring in casual audiences, who otherwise wouldn’t watch a Morbius: The Living Vampire movie? Do you want a Morbius movie? Is Jared Leto the right choice? Let me know in the comments below!
