Jared Leto Teases Morbius Filming In Instagram Post

Venom was quite the surprise last year, wasn’t it? Of course, I was surprised by how well it managed to do at the box office, but I was also surprised that, in spite of its many shortcomings, I didn’t hate the movie. In fact, I thought it was kind of cute and wondered just how much Sony could spread the fun in this side universe.

The next project coming from them is none other than Morbius, the Living Vampire. The character is set to be played by Jared Leto, who recently made a run at the Joker in Suicide Squad. While the future of that character in James Gunn’s Suicide Squad 2 is still up in the air, this Sony film gives him the opportunity to take a crack at another comic book character.

The movie is set to begin filming this month, and Leto himself took to social media to announce he has officially arrived in London to shoot it.


Few details are known outside of some of the talent behind it. Starring alongside Leto are Matt Smith and Adria Arjona, and at the helm is Life director Daniel Espinosa. The script was penned by Gods of Egypt scribes Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless. I’ll admit, that film doesn’t necessarily fill me with confidence, but if the movie is fun I’ll be on board.

But the big question here is whether or not the film can actually anywhere near approach the $855 million haul of Venom. Probably not, but so long as it makes enough to justify its existence, I’m sure Sony will be happy.
