Morbius trailer: Jared Leto turns into a living vampire

For those who don't know, Morbius is based on the comic books of Morbius, the Living Vampire and will follow on from last year's Venom in setting up another of Spider-Man's long time enemies (although he also sometimes works as an ally). Venom wasn't a critical success, but that didn't mean much to Sony given how much it made at the box office and the studio will be hoping for more of the same as they extend their Marvel Universe. Jared Leto will play the lead character in Morbius, and may have something to prove as he has been far from convincing in a number roles in recent years. Of course, with Sony almost removing Spidey from the MCU completely (prevented by a last minute deal with Marvel), they'll be looking to join all of this together at some point - although whether Tom Holland will be around to play that version of Spider-Man remains to be seen. In the mean time, watch the first trailer for Morbius above.

Dangerously ill with a rare blood disorder, and determined to save others suffering his same fate, Dr. Morbius attempts a desperate gamble. What at first appears to be a radical success soon reveals itself to be a remedy potentially worse than the disease.

Daniel Espinosa (Safe House, Life) directs Leto in the lead role, with the likes of Adria Arjona, Matt Smith, Jared Harris and Tyrese Gibson all in support.

Morbius creeps into UK and US cinemas on July 31.
